Sandra Caron/ Tim Whitehead


Sandra L. Caron is a Professor of Family Relations and Human Sexuality at the University of Maine. She has been both professionally and personally involved in college athletics. She is a graduate of the University of Maine and Syracuse University. She has served as a member of the University of Maine Athletic Advisory Board for more than a decade, and director of Athletes for Sexual Responsibility, a nationally recognized peer education program that trains student-athletes to educate others. She developed the unique card game, Hockey: The Card Game, which is marketed to youth, college, and pro teams. Personally, she has been an avid, but average, college hockey fan. This book was driven by her desire to make the game more understandable – and therefore more enjoyable – for herself and other fans.
