Hello all,
Please see the following links for the Calgary Jr. Festival Schedule on Saturday (June 17th).

By now, Angelique Grimm has been in touch with parents/players to coordinate some of the volunteer tasks where assistance is required. She has kindly agreed to coordinate this for Joanne and I, so if there are any questions, please let Angelique know.

Hello All,
It has been FANTASTIC to see so many players out with lots returning players as well as a lot of new faces, so much so that we had to add more teams. This started with a great turnout for the Astros preseason outdoor boot camp back in April. Since then, we seen players improve throughout the season and make some new friends along the way.

It has definitely been a very busy and action-packed spring. We hope that this is just the beginning of many more years of adventures in field hockey even if the CJP spring season will soon going to be coming to a close.

The Calgary Festival is on Sat., June 17th for U12’s, U14’s, and FunStix (and possibly a boys division if there are enough players).

The U18’s have their regular games on Sun., June 18th, but there isn’t a U18 division for the Calgary Festival (apologies – I forgot and goofed on that in an earlier email/SurveyMonkey) … we could use some help if you are available on Saturday, so let us know.

We will also be reaching out to a few of you to coordinate/plan a season wrap-up party on/around June 25th for all Astros/Maroons Club members.

Some of you have also asked about “what’s next” because you are hooked and can’t get enough! (and we love that you are hooked!). There is some information below and I’ve also attached a ‘poster’ with the information. If you know of players who are interested, we would love to have them join us!
