Week in Review

I had the great pleasure this past week to be a part of the Opening Ceremonies for the largest ever Special Hockey International Tournament that was held here at the Canadian Tire Centre and hosted by the Capital City Condors.  Thank you to Kanata South residents Jim and Shana Perkins for all they do to support the Capital City Condors and special hockey here in Ottawa!  The work they have done to grow this league while providing so much fun and rich memories for the children is truly amazing to witness.  A special mention needs to also go to Senators players – Kyle Turris and Patrick Wiercioch who give a lot of inspiration and time to the team.

About the Capital City Condors

The Capital City Condors are a family of hockey teams for those who are unable to play in any other league because of a developmental disability.  Players are age six and up of all ability levels.  The Condors have teams in Kanata, Gloucester, and Cambridge.  www.capitalcitycondors.org

About Special Hockey International

Officially launched in 1996, Special Hockey International aimed to create a hockey league for children and young adults living with developmental disabilities.  In the early days, there were just two players on the ice.  Today SHI has teams throughout North America and Europe, giving thousands of athletes the chance to lace up and play hockey.  Each year the SHI tournament attracts many teams to its four day festival. www.specialhockeyinternational.org
