Team Reports (updated)

Peewee Recreation (AV2)

Sponsored by:  BuyLow Foods – Scotiabank


Our team peewee AV2 has had a fun filled year so far.  We went to our 1st tournament in Campbell River at Christmas.  Now looking forward to hosting our home tournament over family day weekend, “The Bryan Mason Memorial Tournament”.

We will then finish the season in Victoria for our final tournament during spring break.

We are lucky to have Rob Ivezich as head coach with assistants Kyle Alarie & Chris McCollister as well as an Amazing/FUN group of parents.

Our #1 Volunteer is Sarah Bielert who holds many hat’s for our team: division Manager, assistant team Manager & bench door opener/DANCER – she has gone above and beyond for our team and we couldn’t be more grateful.

Atom Recreation Tigers 

sponsored by McDonald’s Restaurant

The Tigers have had a few away games in Parksville and Nanaimo so far this year. They have also had Lake Cowichan, Saanich, Nanaimo and Cowichan teams come to Port Alberni for games.

The tournament we hosted November 24th weekend went very well thanks to all the volunteers and generous donations. We are looking forward to our next tournament in Campbell River December 14th.

Our team has great fundraising volunteers who set up a bottle drive in November and currently we are selling chocolate bars from Coombs Country Candy. We will be doing some more fundraising in the New Year and will hopefully have some of our players participating in the All Stars Tournament in Powell River April 19th-21st.
