Castlegar and Grand Forks Special Olympics team en route to regionals

Castlegar is very proud to announce that a Kootenay Region combination team of Castlegar and Grand Forks Floor Hockey athletes won the right at Regionals in Kelowna to represent our area at the Special Olympics BC Provincials in Vernon on Feb. 21 - 24.

This is a prestigious and well-deserved honour for these hard-working athletes who have achieved the right to compete at this high level of competition.

This team, under the coaching tutelage of Louie Wishloff, Ali Courtney and Dale Redford, is working hard at extra practices, accessing gym time, and doing everything in their power to perform their very best at Provincials. We are all so very proud of our Regional Floor Hockey Team for their enthusiastic commitment to their sport. They are a true asset to our community, and we hope everyone will be cheering them on!

GO TEAM GO!
