Bulldog’s Season Winding Down



IMG_8437 IMG_8435

For some Initiation players it’s their third year and for some it’s their first. Ranging from starting to be taught better passing to the rudimentary of learning to skate. All the young four to six year olds put forth their best efforts in learning the game of hockey.



The Novice Bulldogs had a title to defend.  These seven and eight year olds played hard as a team to come away with a 12-2-2 standing in the league.  After facing off and eliminating Mayerthorpe(2) and Whitecourt(3) they had their work cut out against top seeded Whitecourt(1).  But determination won out as they defeated Whitecourt in the first two games out of three.  Coach, Don Sather had to say,

I think this was a way tougher battle for those kids , they came together at the right time and played such a great team game , passing, positioning and having fun as a team . All of us coaches thought we were on tough losing that first semi final at home but they showed what great teamwork can do . I hope the kids enjoyed it as much as us coaches did.




The Atom’s season ended on a 14-2-0 high note.  The highlight of the season was shown in a 6-2 loss to Mayerthorpe.  Mayerthorpe dominated every game they played but in game two of the championship series, Fox Creek presented them with a challenge.  Although it was a loss, Fox Creek played to the best of their abilities and clinched a second place medal in the league final.  Coach, David Roddick,

I really enjoyed coaching the Atom team this year. I consider the season a success not based on wins and losses but in the growth we witnessed within the kids. I attribute this to the excellent effort the kids put forth and the help I received from the other coaches, Ian Chwok, Paige Kelly,Braeden Roddick and our manager Melissa Scobey. It was a very enjoyable year and the kids played some fantastic hockey.
