This weekend we see the last of our teams playing regular season games with the majority of the divisions already starting playoffs. It is amazing how fast time flies when you are having fun!
Congratulations to our Midget A1 team for taking home the banner this past weekend after clinching first place! Great job!
Success takes many forms - winning games is the obvious one, but as a youth sports association, this is never considered the most important one. We have had many stories of fun moments, friendships built, and life lessons gained come into the office over the course of the last few months. We are so very lucky to have the opportunity to be on the ice in our great country!
With playoffs, the end of the season does come quick and all of our players head off to other sporting activities, but one thing will always remain - we are forever TBirds!
We have started planning for summer camps (August 13-24) and rep tryouts (August 25 - September 15). We will be announcing more information shortly. As well, if you know any young potential players ages 5-8 who want to play hockey, our new player registration process has opened and they can start getting ready for September. Returning player registration will commence this spring.
Good luck in playoffs!
