The team heads off to a tournament in Logan Lake this weekend. League playoffs begin after that.

The Ashcroft Ninjas Novice team hosted Lillooet last Saturday for their last regular game of the season. Some great workout on the ice from both teams … Everyone touched the puck and we saw lots of improvement out there!

Good to see the players really getting after the puck and staying with it. We saw some great camaraderie and sportsmanship on the ice with players encouraging each other. Way to go!!

A Big Thank you to coaches Lewis Kinvig, Steve Aie and Shane Minnabarriet for all their hard work and their dedication to furthering the development and growth of our players skills and confidence and making this hockey season Lots of FUN!
