I would like to take a moment to congratulate the Goulbourn Rockets and Canada TopFlight Academy for their accomplishments this past week.
Just last weekend, the Canada TopFlight Academy basketball team, many of whom are from Stittsville, won the National Preparatory Association Championships in Toronto.
Meanwhile, three of the competitive hockey teams with the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association have qualified for the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association Provincial Tournament taking place this upcoming weekend (April 7-9) in Toronto. The girls all had great seasons and look forward to doing well and representing the Ottawa area at this huge prestigious tournament. It will be a tough battle, but they are ready to play hard.
I would like to congratulate the players for all of their hard work and best of luck to the Rockets are their tournament this weekend.
I would also like to send my sincere thanks to all of the volunteers, parents, and coaches of not just these teams, but all athletics in our communities. The time you take to become involved in the lives of these young ones helps them to create memories that they will not forget and provides an invaluable experience that they will carry with them forever.
Good luck to all the teams moving forward and remember to have fun!
