WELCOME TO THE
The tournament committee extends a very warm and sincere welcome to all players, coaches, managers, parents, and spectators attending the 35th Annual Crowchild Challenge Hockey Tournament. The Crowchild Challenge is one of the premier tournaments in Western Canada for Tier 1/AA teams in the Atom and Pee Wee levels. This year there are a total of 16 teams participating in two age categories. We are proud that you have chosen to join us and hope that you will find the weekend exciting, rewarding, competitive and most of all fun!
While you are in Calgary, please take the time to enjoy many of the other activities and facilities the City and surrounding areas have to offer. A visit to the many sites, or malls, in Calgary will only enhance your visit. We wish you the very best in competition and welcome you to the City of Calgary.
Hockey is a great sport requiring speed, dexterity and strength. Each year it is always amazing to see so many highly motivated young athletes involved in an event, which encourages team work, good sportsmanship and fair play. The aim of the Crowchild Challenge is to provide a high level of hockey competition that offers enjoyment for all involved. We hope that all aspects of the tournament are memorable and the friendships developed prove to be valuable long after the tournament has ended.
A tournament of this magnitude would not be be possible without a dedicated group of sponsors, volunteers and others who work so hard to make it happen. In particular, the Tournament Committee would like to express its appreciation to: The parent volunteers from the Northwest Warriors teams, the advertisers and sponsors for their enthusiastic support.
Good Luck to all participants,
May sportsmanship and fair play prevail.
Yulia Gorbach and Lindsay Bryant
