|Now's your chance to score a goal against the mighty Mountainview Colts!! Not on the ice, but in the Ross Ford Elementary School's gymnasium. That's right - it's time for floor hockey!|
The YES Program is hosting their 2nd Annual "Passport to Wellness" event on November 15th. Our Junior B Hockey team, the Mountain View Colts, will be there to assist with the games and connect with the community!
The Youth Empowerment and Support Program (YES) has been providing programs to schools in Olds and Didsbury since 2007. Part of a provincial initiative funded by Alberta Health Services, as a Mental Health Capacity Building Project, their goal is to support and protect the mental health and wellness needs of children, youth and families in our communities.
Doors open at 6:30, first puck drop at 7:00.
Teams will be 3 on 3, plus a goalie. Goalie can be provided.
ALL gear will be provided (no personal or outside equipment will be permitted).
Players will be sorted onto teams upon arrival.
Cost - $10/person or $30/Family
Registration is through Eventbrite or forms available at Westglen School

Bring a water bottle, wear your favorite jersey and come have some fun!
The event is open for ages 12 and up.
Ross Ford Elementary is located at 2016 23 Street in Didsbury.
Besides the Floor Hockey Classic, YES coaches offer fun and engaging youth groups during the lunch hours and after school, as well as important universal social and emotional learning programs in the classrooms from Kindergarten all the way up to High School.
If we invest early to support and protect our childrens' and youths' mental health needs, they will develop into healthy, happy, contributing members of society.
