The Stanley Cup originated in Canada after Lord Frederick Arthur Stanley of Preston decided that since the sport was so popular there should be a form of championship between the teams. Lord Stanley donated a silver bowl to the Ametuer Hockey Association of Canada for the prize of the championship. The cup was originally called the Dominion Challenge Trophy, but was soon renamed the Stanley Hockey Championship Cup in 1893 after its founder. That same year it was decided that the Stanley Cup could not be owned by any of the winning hockey teams.

This is important to me because it gives a strong sense of purpose to the player.
For my final project, I have decided to examine the rituals that are performed during every single Stanley Cup Playoff year. Most athletes have some sort of superstitions that they follow from game to game but when it comes to the playoffs in the NHL extreme new rituals are picked up by just about every player and team. The most well-known ritual is the playoff beard, which is when all players let their beards grow only performing minor maintenance after a loss. The New York Islanders originated this tradition that has now spread to many different sports. The meaning behind this is that the length of the beard sends a message for how long and hard each team has worked, the longer the better.

High school offers many opportunities for students to participate in a variety of extracurricular activities. These activities include athletics to the fine arts.
