In Honor of Teddy Balkind

 

SYHA Families -

Below please find a letter from the Greenwich Skating Club, outlining the tragic loss of Teddy Balkind, a NCWC and St. Luke's player.  SYHA is looking to acquire the helmet stickers referenced below and we ask all of our families to keep the Balkind family in their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Greenwich Skating Club - Tragic news in our close-knit hockey community 

 

As many of you are painfully aware, St. Luke’s and the New Canaan Winter Club (“NCWC”) lost a son last night in a tragic on-ice accident.

 

Teddy Balkind passed away yesterday after suffering an injury in a hockey game between St. Luke’s and Brunswick.  Teddy was a 10th grader at St. Luke’s, a life-long NCWC player and known as an all-around incredible young man, son and brother.

 

We have been in contact with the NCWC and in the immediate term they are honoring Teddy through the following actions:

 
  1. Helmet stickers 
  2. Asking membership to put a hockey stick outside their homes in quiet remembrance  
  3. Planning a moment of silence and stick tap before every travel hockey game
 

GSC and the Darien Youth Hockey Association (“DYHA”) (along with many other clubs) will honor Teddy by implementing these actions. 

 

The GSC Board of Governors ask all members to put a hockey stick outside their homes to honor Teddy.  We will also be alerting all our coaches to ensure a moment of silence and stick tap to honor Teddy before each of our travel games.  When helmet stickers are available, we will ask all our travel players to wear them.

 

Hockey in our area is a close-knit community and many players on both teams played in our organizations over the years and will need support as well.  While we can’t begin to understand the pain and suffering of the immediate family and close friends and family, we are all in pain and are sending our love, thoughts and prayers to everyone affected.
