Our annual tournament, the Christine Cup, is this Saturday, June 15 from 9am-1pm. Named in honour of Christine Matheson, who restarted the league 6 years ago and has spent endless hours devoted to it, this is our chance to mix things up a little for the kids.
All teams should plan to be at the field at least 15 minutes before their first game. Each team will play 3 games over the course of the day. There will not be a practice session: games will run for 25 mins in each slot and we will blow the air-horn to signal the beginning and end of the game.
As you can see from the schedule, we have multiple divisions playing at the same time. If you are coaching more than one team (sweet mercy!), you may need to co-ordinate with your co-coach (or parents) to look after one of your teams.
For Atoms and Mosquitos there will be refs, otherwise coaches will do the job.
For Atoms it is arranged as a tournament so winners of each game move on to play winners, ultimately coming to a final showdown. For other leagues, it is just a funsies 3 games.
Load up on freezies, ice cream treats, chips and oh yeah, orange slices and watermelon for your teams.
Mark your calendars for a super exciting tourney, party, BBQ and generally fun time for all!
On Saturday, June 16th we will be hosting a mini-tournament when each team will be playing 3 short games against other teams in their division. There will also be a BBQ and all day music from DJ Tiago, and teams are encouraged to make it a party with their own snacks and general tournament shenanigans.
The BBQ will be from 11:00-13:00 and is by pre-sale only with two options:
- Hot Dog, Drink and Chips - $8
- Hamburger, Drink and Chips - $10
If you want to order, you must do so by June 1st, and you must print and bring your receipt as there will not be cash purchases at the site.
You can order food from the club website (see the attached instructions):
