A Note from The Prez

Every year, our Shark Attack Tournament is the single largest fundraiser of the season. Hosting the Bantam Provincials for the first time ever will be the largest and most prestigious event in our history. We will be hosting 21 or more Tyke Teams from all over the Island and lower mainland from June 9th-11th. The Bantam Provincials will see upwards of 30 teams from all over the Province of BC come to our area from July 13th-16th. Those of us behind the scenes will do the heavy lifting of organizing and arranging everything. We need you all to take on shifts for both events to ensure their success. These events are a fun way to contribute to the sport in a small way!

For now, I will focus on the Provincials July 13th-16th. The very best teams in BC will be here to compete and possibly be crowned provincial champions. The positions that we will have to fill are Welcome Table, Raffle table, Time keeping for games at Oceanside Arena, Hospitality Suite, Headquarters Room and Security. Anywhere from 8am-8pm on said dates. We will also be looking for donations of products or services to raffle off. I myself could use a hand with planning and preparing a program to sell advertising space on. Depending on the number of helpers we get shifts could range from 1-4 hours. Please contact either Farrah Lewis at or Stephanie Cain at and cc myself to let us know your availability during provincials and what jobs you may be interested in? Farrah is starting a list of volunteers!

Best Regards

John Shafi
