The San Pedro Roman Catholic School has quietly been the location for an unorthodox pickup game of hockey. Played on concrete rather than on ice, two games are held every Thursday where kids play at 3:30pm and the adults take over at 4:30pm. After the bell, students participating run to the court and sweep it off, a precursor to the game that organizer Justin Lambert insists on.
Mr. Lambert is a business owner and organizes the game with a team of other business owners on the island. It started off as games played just for fun amongst friends. However, Lambert saw the opportunity to introduce the game to kids and provide a positive and healthy after school activity to partake in. The adults or as they call themselves, “The San Pedro Buccaneers,” play a more intermediate level that is open to anyone interested. Their passion for the game even brought about the annual “Coconut Cup”- a hockey match between the Buccaneers and a team from Canada played at the Angel Nuñez Auditorium.Click here to read the rest of the article and see LOTS more GREAT photos in the San Pedro Sun
