Since our RBC Sports Day in Canada demo – huge thanks to the media for coming out and all the community interest !! About 50 people showed up to try our sport with the team !!
Then the following week and 2 days before we left for the first BC League Tournament of the Season, Spotlight Productions came out to do an interview on our Head Coach and Team President. Check out their amazing stories in the link attached to any of our secondary menu pages…it really is a fantastic promotion by Telus Optik Community Programming. Thanks Telus !
So… at their first Tournament of the 2015-16 Season , the KOs enlisted one Vancouver athlete, Rod Bitz (previous National athlete), and combined with strong leadership by leading Defensive Provincial Athlete and KOs Head Coach, Randy LeBlanc, the team finished in second place with a first game win, second game loss by 7, and third game loss by only 2 points !! Yup ! They were on FIRE !!
Our new KOs sponsored athlete, Kenneth McEwen played a huge role in assisting our offensive lineup alongside Kamloops Coach in Training, Stu Wymer and C0-Captain, Scott James. The defensive lineup, Randy LeBlanc, Tyler Valstar, and Paul Thomas played effectively with improved transitions, guarding the goal line, and denying goals to pushing back for turnovers !! (Not the Pop-Tart kind )
COMING UP !!!! …
