Swan Lake Recreation Complex Hosts 6th Annual Ball
by Patti Hacault, Staff Reporter
Each fall, the Swan Lake Recreation Complex hosts their Annual Ball Hockey Tournament. It puts communities into the “back to school” September mood! Team members were a mix of hockey and non-hockey participants – all taking part in the lighthearted atmosphere.
The Swan Lake Recreation Complex Committee has, for the past six years, hosted this annual event on the September long weekend. It is an excellent fundraiser for the committee and they have become more recognized for hosting their annual ball hockey tournament every September long weekend. The committee continues to host it on this particular weekend, even though it is a very busy time with harvest, camping and the end of summer before school starts.
The format of the tournament was three on three plus a goalie.
There were 19 teams in total including categories for men’s/mixed, girls’/women, junior and kids that took to the “floor” on Sunday, September 2nd.
“We also kept an open time slot this year for younger kids (approximately age eight and down) for players who wanted to throw in their sticks and play for fun,” underscored Annis Goderis, Swan Lake Recreation Complex Board Member.
