This morning I stumbled upon this video of basically the cutest demonstration of sportsmanship everrr! After some research I found the original video poster and the backstory behind it:
"My youngest daughter, Amara (age 4), is the smallest player on the Gore Bay Tyke hockey team. She is quick to tell you that she is #12 and actually plays in games, not just practices. Depending on the arena she is playing in, she can not watch the game because she can't see over the boards. She sometimes has to be lifted onto the ice.
But you can hear her cheer from anywhere in any arena. We thought that Amara was the smallest in the league until we met Arabella (age 3) from Manitowaning, who also happens to be #12. My daughter was awarded her team's player of the game because of what happened in the video. I would like to thank her coaches, Clayton Best, Darren Nodecker, Chad Chevrette and Shane Ingram, for helping instill these kinds of values into these young players."
All. The. Feels. Props to the parents for making an already extraordinary job at raising their daughter. Keep it up! Oh and the best part? They are both number 12!!! Now we're gonna go curl up in a ball and watch a Disney movie.
GAWD this is cute.
