The RBC School Tour got local students moving on Wednesday, November 13 as forward Justin Bailey and goaltender Jordan DeKort brought the Kitchener Rangers’ Captains Clinic to the students of St. Elizabeth.
The players warmed up in the gym, where switched positions while waiting for their new friends to join them. With Jordan taking shots on net, Justin showed off his skills between the pipes, boasting that he’s ‘unreal in net’. A few goals against later, however, it seemed unlike that he’d be strapping on the pads for the Rangers anytime soon!
The Grade 5 students soon joined them, and got their bodies in motion as Jordan led them through a dynamic warm-up and stretching session to prepare them for the games ahead and explained the importance of properly getting yourself ready for exercise.
The students were divided into four teams, with each Rangers player assigned to coach and referee one game. Soon enough, however, Jordan and Justin were in on the action, with the latter again trying his luck as a netminder. Each team had the opportunity to play the others, as the gymnasium quickly filled with the excited sounds of the game.
At the end of the visit, Jordan and Justin answered the student’s questions and signed autographs for their new teammates and offered their thanks for a great morning of fun and hard work.
