Humboldt Broncos

I have found myself thinking constantly the last two days about the Humboldt Broncos players and their families, as well as the people that know and love them. They were a team in the true sense of the word, and the reaction of the sports community everywhere in Canada and beyond our borders shows that they were part of so much more than that. They are part of the extended family that includes every player, coach, team official, referee, parent and fan that has ever climbed aboard a bus, whether it was a highway coach or a yellow racer school bus, a van, a car or a taxi and set out from home to participate in a sporting event. Regardless of which sport any of us have been involved in, thousands of the groups listed above have been on the road and in the air every week pursuing a dream or simply doing what they love to do ever since our games have been played. It is this common pursuit that binds us all and makes this tragedy so much more personal for those involved in sports. My condolences to the families of those that are gone, and my hope for a speedy recovery for those in hospital. For everyone travelling for sports, you now have extra guardian angels watching over you that were taken far too soon. RB

International Women’s Day

Today is International Women’s Day and we thought it fitting that we feature on our Facebook page some of our volunteers that not only make a significant contribution to the league, but that also serve as role models for all of the players in our program – both boys and girls. Thank you for what you do for the children in our community. You are making a difference in the lives of all who know you. Be proud of that every day – not just today. Be sure to scroll through the photos of some of the many female volunteers that have made a difference in our program.
