On September 15, we celebrated the life of Reg Sims with the Reg Sims Memorial Sportsmanship Tournament. Reg was an important part of our floor hockey team and the Boyle Street and McCauley communities. Reg’s tournament was at the McCauley Rink, and sponsored by the Edmonton Sport and Social Club, the McCauley Community League, E4C, Edmonton’s Food Bank, and Bissell Centre. All the players and groups coming together meant we had an amazing day of fun, food, prizes, and awards!
After all of the exciting games of hockey, the winning team of the tournament was, fittingly, “Team Sims.” That doesn’t mean the rest of the teams didn’t give it their all! Thanks to all the sponsors and players for the amazing day. Team Sims’ member Kyle was awarded the tournament MVP. Andrew Greenaway, another members of Team Sims, was this month’s Sportsmanship Award winner! Andrew is always a great role model and positive example for the rest of the team. He supports other players with developing their own positive attitude towards competitive play and encourages cooperative problem solving. Andrew is working on becoming a community support worker and will be an asset to our community members in that role.
The ICRWP hosts a free floor hockey drop-in every Friday at Boyle Street Plaza from 1-3 p.m. Everyone is welcome to join us on Fridays, at future tournaments, and all our other recreation and wellness activities!
