California Dreaming Pays off for Compete Client Matt Caito
Palm trees and sunny skies were the norm for Matt Caito growing up in Southern California, but so too were his dreams of becoming a professional hockey player. “When you think of California, you definitely don’t think of hockey. You think of the beaches and the warm weather,” says Caito. “My friends were playing baseball, football and basketball. The closest rink was about 30 miniutes away. My mom is from Maine and my dad is from the Boston area, so they grew up with hockey and got me hooked on it as well.”Caito was born in 1993 in Coto de Caza, California, at a time when Wayne Gretzky had been traded to the LA Kings, and hockey was taking off in “non-traditional” hockey markets such as SoCal. One of Caito’s favorite players growing up was Paul Kariya, who was the first superstar for the then Anaheim Mighty Ducks. Click here for the rest of the article.

The demands placed on athletes today in any given sport has increased immensely over the last ten years. It is not uncommon for California hockey players to play on a club and high school team at the same time. This means three to four practices a week and two to three games a weekend. Not to mention dryland and private lessons which many older players are also involved with. Tournament weekends can sometimes mean eight or more games in three to four days. Sound alarming?
