This past weekend was filled with great hockey for the Calgary Titans. The team participated in the AFJHL Showcase Tournament, ending the weekend off with a win against the Banff Academy to finish in 3rd place. The team came out of the gate running keeping the score at 0-0 until the end of the second scoring the first goal of the game with less than a minute left in the period. Banff came back to score one early in the third before the Titans scored two to make the score 3-1. Banff scored the last goal making the final score 3-2. Congratulations go out to the Titans for a great weekend filled with great hockey.

We have some time between games during the Tournament on Friday so we have booked the Olive Garden, at 36th Street and Memorial Drive, 333 36 St NE. This is an optional Dutch treat. Lunch menu items range from $ 6.00 – $15.00. To see a full menu go to http://www.olivegarden.com/menu-listing/pronto-lunch. Please RSVP if you will be joining us.
The Titans expect all players and coaching staff and other team officials to dress appropriately for all games. For the coaches that is a dress jacket, tie and dress slacks. For the players, that is dress attire suitable for a young lady who takes game day seriously. That means no denim materials such as jeans, cargo pants or tee shirts. You know what I’m driving at and if you don’t, come and talk to me!! Game day should always be considered a special day, one that requires serious game contemplation and preparation, including diet, rest and dress attire which all adds up to respect for your teammates and the team and ultimately ensuring you play the best you can.
Please go to the schedule tab/link to see tournament games x 2 for Friday and game Saturday. Our tournament results will determine whether there is likely to be a second game Saturday and a final game on Sunday although we are guaranteed 5 games on the weekend. We have been allocated the two games on Friday to allow the traveling teams an opportunity to get here on Friday. Entire showcase tournament, rules and schedule can be found in News tab on our website. Even if you can’t make it for one or either game on Friday, or for only part of a game, please try your best to organize your schedule to participate in this important, inaugural event. It is going to set the team up for a great start to the season. Also, please make sure you have a pair of all black and a pair of all white, no colours or stripes at all, hockey socks to wear with our home and away jerseys. These will be needed for the rest of the season. Also, if you have a black helmet, please wear it as that is best for the appearance of the team. Finally, although we are trying to give you the best information possible at this time so you can plan accordingly, the showcase tournament is still in a formative stage and some changes could yet be determined so, please regularly check the website for any updates to the schedule or other tournament information. The tournament represents the unofficial beginning of our season and we’re all looking forward to getting started. I can hardly wait to get going!!!
