Capital City Condors - SPECIAL HOCKEY TEAMS FOR SPECIAL PEOPLE!

Condors coaches recognized as Hockey Canada Ambassadors!

hc_community_ambassador_lockupThe Condors are about special people, with special needs, playing hockey. Very simple.

That fundamental purpose would not be realized were it not for the tremendous dedication, passion and commitment from our amazing group of volunteers, especially our on-ice coaches and helpers.

Hockey Canada recently introduced a new program called Hockey Canada Ambassadors to recognize the role of volunteers in hockey dedicated to spreading the love of the game.

It was with tremendous pride that we found out Condor’s coaches Shawn Lebouthillier and Lloyd Lewis have been honored as the first Hockey Canada Ambassadors!

On Oct. 22 in Kanata, Kelsey Chadwick from Hockey Canada, spent an incredible three hours with us recognizing our amazing Head Coaches Shawn and Lloyd!

Shawn and Lloyd would be the first to tell you that they are part of a larger team of coaches and volunteers that help make the Condors the incredible program that it is. This award is a nice way for Hockey Canada to acknowledge all the hard work and commitment that ALL our volunteers give to the Condors. When you think of the scope of Hockey Canada and the sheer number of volunteers across Canada, it really hits home what an awesome honor this is for Condors Hockey!

Senators 50-50 Selling Update

The Condors are extremely grateful to once again be beneficiaries of the Sens Foundation! As such, there is a reciprocal relationship in which we need to be involved in the selling of 50-50 tickets at the Sens home games. So far, we have dates for the month of October, the rest of the season’s dates will be added to our website as we receive them.

Last year, the Condors were able to earn almost $6,000 from our share of the 50-50 efforts! That money goes a long way and we are so thankful to those who gave up their own time to be a part of our selling group.

Selling 50-50 requires that folks, ages 18 yrs and up, arrive two hours before the game, and sell until the end of the second intermission at the latest. Selling is not difficult (it’s a really an easy sell – most of the time people approach you), but there is a bit of training that needs to happen on the handheld machines. If training is required (first time selling only), we are asked to arrive an additional 15 – 30 minutes early. Parking for volunteers is free and there is free pizza when you’re done!

If this is something that interests you, please click on the link above (Senators 50/50 Sellers Needed) to sign-up in the time-slots we have available. We need 10 sellers per game. Please do pass along this request to your hockey team, ball team, golf buddies, coworkers, church friends, etc.

If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact our Condors 50-50 Coordinator, Bruce Macdonald: Bruce.macdonald@rogers.com
