Hear from the players themselves as they explain why they play and what is their favorite thing about hockey & the Condors!
Monday, Oct. 22, 2018 will go down in Condors history as one of the most incredible days we’ve ever had! Thanks to our Honorary Captain Mark Borowiecki and his wife Tara, the Ottawa Senators players. coaches and staff for the life-long memories that were made and the dreams that came true!
It was so amazing for our parents and volunteers to see the Sens players and coaches doing passing, stick-handling and shooting drills with our players while huge smiles, hugs and high-fives were all around. I think the Sens might’ve even gotten a few playing and coaching tips from the Condors!
In all the hustle and bustle of life – it’s really good to stop and take time to enjoy some really special moments.
GO CONDORS and GO SENS!
Welcome to our website, we’re happy you’re here! For those who are new, here’s a little info about our team:
The Condors run from the first Saturday of October through to the end of March. We have 5 icetimes divided between 2 arenas at either end of the city: Jack Charron Arena in Kanata and Earl Armstrong Arena in Gloucester.
The Condors Coaches, parents, and sometimes players collaboratively, work together when deciding the group placement. Placements are made based on the following considerations:
•ability (physical & cognitive): we want to ensure that each and every player is safe, has fun, and is challenged to grow and develop
•age/physical size: again, physical safety is of vital importance
•social interactions: we want our players to LOVE their team – teammates often become very close friends whose relationships go far beyond the hockey rink, so social considerations are also extremely important to the Condors!
Group 1 is our “learn-to-skate” and assistive devices group and always skate from 2-3pm at Jack Charron. Groups 2 through 5 rotate bi-weekly between the two rinks but always remain in the same time slot. Group 5 is our advanced hockey skills group and groups 2, 3, and 4 fall in-between those two.
The Condors enjoy many social activities throughout the year including our amazing Hallow’een and Christmas parties and our legendary End of Season Banquet! We also have optional tournaments both here and away, ball hockey and dragon boating in the summer and of course, our Annual Kyle Turris Capital City Condors Golf Tournament!
If you have any questions about joining the Condors, please don’t hesitate to email our GM, Shana Perkins: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Condors are committed to doing everything they possibly can to make hockey dreams come true. We are inclusive of both cognitive and cognitive+physical disabilities because we believe #hockeyreallyisforeveryone and we #chooseinclusion
