Early Success for our U11 teams
Congrats to U11 Red, U11 Black and our U11 Rep teams on having early season success in their tournaments.

On November 5th to November 7th, the U11 LL Red team and the U11 Black team travelled to Goderich for the Ryan O'Reilly Tournament. The two teams both went undefeated in the tournament, and ultimately met each other in the final with the U11 Red team coming out on top of a closely contested game; score was 2-1.

Congratulations to U11 Red on taking home the championship, and the U11 Black team as the tournament finalist.

The same weekend, the U11 Rep team travelled to Paris to participate in the Rob Johnston Memorial Tournament. The team succeeded in making it to the final, setting the stage for a match up with their early season competitor Hagersville. Although the team had beaten Hagersville previously in league play, and had been undefeated in the tournament all the way to the final, they ended up taking home the finalist trophy with a 3-0 loss.

This past weekend, the U11 Rep team participated in the Boston Pizza Tournament in St. Thomas. The team again went undefeated all the way to the final. The team met Ilderton in the final, this time taking home the Championship Trophy with a 5-1 win.

Congratulations to the U11 Rep team on their early season success.

We look forward to watching all of our teams during the season, and wish every team the same degree of success.

Tim Hortons
The Timbits Minor Sports Program is a community-oriented sponsorship program for children four to eight years old who participate in local house league sports teams. The program's philosophy is not based on winning or losing - but on learning a new sport, making new friends, and just taking time out to be a kid. Tim Hortons currently sponsors over 200,000 children who play on hockey, soccer, lacrosse, t-ball, baseball and ringette teams across Canada and in the United States. Each sponsored team is supplied with Timbits Minor Sports jerseys or T-shirts. Timbits hockey teams are often given the opportunity to play on-ice scrimmages during intermissions at Junior, American Hockey League (AHL) and National Hockey League (NHL) games.
