Peewee AAA heading to Ontario Winter Games
Submitted By KMHA on Friday, February 09, 2018
The Ontario Winter Games is Ontario's largest multi-sport event.   Athletes from ages 12 to 18 compete in individual and team sports.  From March 1st to 4th, over 3000 athletes, competing in 25 events will descend on this year’s host city of Orillia.

The Kitchener Junior Rangers Major Peewee AAA team is proud to be participating in this elite athletic event.  Clinching first in league play in the Alliance Hockey – East Division, the Major Peewee AAA team will compete against teams from the OMHA, GTHL, HEO, HNO, and the NOHA. The players and coaching staff will leave from Kitchener on Thursday where a bus will take them to the Athlete Villages prior to the Opening Ceremonies at 6:30PM at Couchiching Beach Park.

The team has worked incredibly hard all season and the Ontario Winter Games is a well-deserved experience that they will remember for the rest of their lives. It isn't very often you come across a group of players that truly embrace what it is to be great teammates but that has been one of the reasons for their success this season. The team has really bought into the program and every day they strive to be better athletes and push each other to be the best they can be.

As the team heads into playoffs next week they know that the toughest battles are yet to come. Every team has the potential to make a push in playoffs and the teams that stay focused, work the hardest and adapt to other teams will ultimately rise to the top. One of the team’s goals this year was to win the Alliance Championships and qualify for OHFs and the past 8 months they have been preparing for this very moment.

As they prepare to embark on the final chapter of a successful season, Coach Mike Nicoll says, “I can truly say I will miss each and every one of these kids next season. I will miss the smiles on their faces, the laughter in the dressing room and the passion they all share for the game of hockey. We have shared many memories together this season but the best and most memorable ones are yet to come.”
