News and Announcements
The u16 boys played their first NCL tournament in Surrey, BC December 4-6. They did really well considering that these games were their first competitive games of the season. They lost 4 games and drew 1. The drawn game against Wild from Calgary could have been won by the team. Calgary got a penalty in the last seconds of the game resulting in a goal and a tie. There were many positives to take away from the weekend. By the end of the weekend they were playing well as a team and showing terrific team spirit. We expect the team to do well at the next tournament in Calgary starting Friday January 15th. Have a look at the photographs now posted on the Club website.

This weekend Edmonton is hosting a U14 and U12 provincial tournament. It is important that all athletes attend to make sure that we have enough players for each game. Additionally, the games can not take place if we don’t have volunteers for minor official positions. Below is the link to the minor officials schedule. Please sign up for more than just our games as we need to make sure all games have volunteers. Since our older athletes are not practicing this weekend they should also be helping out by volunteering as minor officials.
Below is the link to watch the U16 boys play in the NCL in Surrey the first weekend in December. You need to sign up for a free livestream account in order to watch.
The U19 men and women played some tough games in Regina this weekend. The men played valiantly with a short bench and look forward to having some of their key players back in February. The women had some close games and with a large portion of their bench being young and less experienced they will only become more competitive as the season goes on. Both teams are hoping to have the growth and success experienced by the U19 men last season.
You can check out some pictures from the weekend in the 2015-2016 albums. Unfortunately, our team photographer’s camera broke down in the middle of the boys game. We’re hoping she’ll have it fixed for future league play.
