A huge thank you to everyone who participated in or volunteered at our provincial championships! 54 teams from around the province came out to North Battleford to participate in the E.C. Leslie provincial championships hosted by North Battleford Comprehensive Highschool. 

Even though provincial tournaments are over for the season, we still have many events coming up!
