Sooke PeeWee C2 go international

Sooke's PeeWee C2 hockey team played at the well-run tournament hosted by the Seattle Junior Hockey Assocation.

Sooke’s PeeWee C2 hockey team play at the Seattle Jr. Hockey Association tournament.

Sooke’s PeeWee C2 hockey team represented our community with the friendly and  fun attitude we are known for.

The extremely well-run tournament hosted by the Seattle Junior Hockey Association was a success for our Sooke team.  Our PeeWee team won one game and lost three, but all games were a fight to the end.  In the skills competition there were four players chosen from all 16 participating teams and our team won first in the Skating Skills (Sean MacDonald) and second in the Skating Endurance (Brandon Jay).

Our entire team and entourage won the prestigious Team Pride Award. This was a great opportunity to showcase our fabulous town of Sooke and the District of Sooke pins we gave out to every team we played against were a big hit!

Thanks to the city of Sooke for providing us with them as well as Markus’ Wharfside Restaurant, The Sooke Harbour House, The Prestige and The Stickleback Restaurant for donating so many of your bottles to our fundraising.  We are lucky  to live in a very supportive community, thanks to everyone for making this tournament possible for our team.
