Red Deer Friends on Ice

This weekend I’m going to be in Red Deer with the Crossfire for the Red Deer Friends on Ice tournament. There are a total of 62 teams participating from the U6 through to Open D. I’m really looking forward to this tournament because it’s been a long time since I’ve been to this tournament, so it holds a bunch of memories for me. The first game for Crossfire is against Strathmore Ice Fusion and their second game on Friday is against Red Deer Rampage. On Saturday they don’t have a game Read more [...]

NW Ringette Rumble

It was another busy tournament weekend, and I was back at the rink with the team I coach. This time we were at the NW Ringette Rumble in town and I watched as many games as I could. Between Crossfire’s games Friday I stuck around the rink watching a bunch of games because really where else would I be during a tournament. All the games I watched were amazing and a bunch of the plays even had me saying wow and trying to figure out how it worked. Saturday was an early morning for Crossfire with Read more [...]

Lonnie Krahn Classic day two

Day two of a tournament is always busier than the first day it feels like. Today Crossfire had their first game at 1:30 p.m., so I went earlier than I needed to be there to watch more games. There's always more people at rinks to talk to on the second day of a tournament since not everyone can get the Friday off. Crossfire had a bit of a tough game, but with it being the very beginning of the season they're sill getting used to playing with each other. I'm not sure how their second game will Read more [...]

This morning U16B Cal East Crossfire (the team I'm coaching) played Indus Lightning and it was a really good game, but they ended up losing 9-6. The game was back and forth for Read more [...]

Medicine Hat day One

Well it was a slow start to the day.  Leaving Calgary took longer than it should've.  There was a couple accidents so just about every way for getting out of the city for getting to Medicine Hat was backed up.  We drove 12km in 38 minutes.  Finally an hour after we left our house we got to the highway to get on our way to Medicine Hat. The first game was really tense to watch since the Fireballs were playing the other NW team from Calgary. It just shows how evenly balanced the team are when Read more [...]
