Final Thoughts – Information Upate #5 – July 18, 2016

That was really fun!!!  I hope you had as much fun as I did and I hope to see all of you who competed in the Midget category back for the 2018 Alberta Summer Games in Grande Prairie.  We have a lot of talent in the Peace; we just need to get out and compete more on the provincial and national level.

Overall, I was really pleased with how we. I was predicting about 7 medals; we won 10 medals  – 2 silver and 8 bronze.  This was up for 7 medals in the 2014 Games (5 silver and 2 bronze).

For the record …

Team Practices in Grande Prairie – Starts Tuesday, May 31

For athletes in the Grande Prairie area, we’ll start team practices on Tuessday, May 31at 4:3- p.m.  For now, we’ll go on Tuesdays, but we may add days later on depending on the interest.

For out of town athletes, if you can make the odd Tuesday practice, that’s great.  I don’t expect you to drive 2 hours each way from Peace River to be at practice every Tuesday.  However, it’s up to you to practice on your own – you want to be at your best for the Games in July.  If you’d like some advice about training, please e-mail me.
