2018 Floor Hockey Tournament Details
Date: February 8, 2018
Tournament will open with a special address from Olympian, Chandra Crawford!
The 3rd floor hockey tournament is coming! CCS will be hosting 5 schools and special guests, including gold medal Olympian, Chandra Crawford. Classes will have the opportunity to hear Chandra speak, watch some hockey and cheer on the different teams! There will also be a small concession to add to the excitement. Students are welcome to bring $2-5 to spend (we will limit the number of sweet items they can buy). All monies raised will go to WinSport's newcomer program to try sport on snow and ice!
Chandra is a music-loving mountain girl born and raised in Canmore, Alberta. In 2005 she founded "Fast and Female," an organization dedicated to Empowerment Through Sport that reaches 2000 girls annually all over North America.
In 2006 Chandra won Olympic Gold in cross-country skiing and captured many hearts when she belted out the national anthem from the top step of the podium.
In March 2014 she retired from ski racing after three Olympics and 13 years of international ski racing with the Canadian National Team. She is working full time empowering girls with Fast and Female events across Canada after graduating from the University of Calgary executive MBA program in the spring of 2016.
Her main interests beyond MBA school Fast and Female consist of doing the following activities with friends and family: yoga, camping, dancing, reading, languages, eating seafood, concerts, and any kind of adventure in the mountains with her husband Jared, their one year old Kyla and their dog, Stella.
She'd love to hear from you on Facebook, LinkedIn or @chandracrawford on twitter

On March 23, 2017 special guest speaker, Olympian Catriona LeMay Doan opened our second annual Floor Hockey Tournament. Proceeds from this tournament will go to WinSport "better than yesterday".
May 4, 2017 was the big reveal and it was very exciting as our floor hockey tournament raised $9446.69! BUT we heard from John Francis at WinSport, they had a supporter who was inspired by our fundraising event and matched the money! So the total for new Canadians on ice and and snow is now $19,446.69. Yay, we're so excited for everyone!

On Wednesday, January, 11, 2017, two CCS students were invited to the Saddledome for a once in a lifetime experience.They got to watch a Flames practice, then later interview two of the Flames players. The arena was very empty and quiet, unlike a Flames game. There was a lot of media at the practice getting ready to interview the players on how they were going to play in the game that night. The students saw some pre practice/game rituals. For example, goalie Brian Elliott was showering himself with his gatorade bottle on the bench to wake himself up. Tune in at the end of January to read the full story.
