There has been some confusion about how you change your password once logged in to the new Member Area.
There is a name and avatar in the top-right of the page with a drop-down list with “Edit My Profile” link:
When you click that link, you will be taken to your profile page where you can Generate Password to get a super strong (and totally un-remember-able) password. This is a text box. So if you want to type in your own (remember-able) password. The strength of the password is up to you. My password is considered “weak” but I actually don’t agree with WordPress on this 😉

The 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!

HUGE THANKS to Steve Cain of CainCo Photography for the amazing photos he took of this year’s Condors Family!!

Here are the team photos for 2015-2016 and also a great shot of the Condors with their families!
The following are the Financial Records of the Capital City Condors (including the Cambridge Blades) for periods ending June 2014 and June 2015 as prepared by MCKECHNIE & CO. as independent auditors according to obligations of the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act.
A summary of those obligations can be found here.
Every Condor family is encouraged to read the document in its entirety (it’s not that long), but the summary can be found in the auditor’s “Qualified Opinion”, which states:
In our opinion, except for the possible effects of the matters described in the Basis for Qualified Opinion paragraph, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Capital City Condors as at June 30, 2014 and 2015, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with Canadian accounting standards for not-for-profit organizations.
The Condors have embarked on a fundraising project aimed at getting the Condors playing at a USA Hockey and Hockey Canada sanctioned event in California in April 2017.
The thermometer below is going to track our progress to this exciting goal!
Watch this site and our Facebook page for fundraising events over the next year!
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.email@example.com

Registration for the 2015-2016 Capital City Condors is still *OPEN*.
We have a few spots available for Capital City Condors, East which meets at the Richcraft Sensplex in Gloucester.
Note that both Kanata teams are completely *FULL* and if you register for Kanata the best we can do is add you to a waiting list.
We encourage you to check out the Condors in Gloucester so your athlete doesn’t miss out on the Condor’s experience. The Condors East are 100% part of the Condors Hockey “way of doing things” and have been around almost as long as our team in Kanata.
What is “the Condor’s Way“? I am glad you asked. For 8+ years now, the Capital City Condors have invited special athletes with special needs who want to play hockey and to be a part of an organization that welcomes ALL players, regardless of ability. No try-outs or skating assessments required! The Condor’s Way is about inclusion… period! Come be part of the Condor’s Way! You and your special athlete will not look back!
The online form for registering your players for the 2015-2016 Capital City Condors (both East and West teams) is now available!
2015-2016 Player Registration Form
The form is the same for both returning and new players as it is important for us to update our records with their background information, even for returning players. This also helps us maintain an accurate email mailing list for the Condors families.
Please note that there are no printable forms this year (only the online form at this website) and every player needs to be registered separately (i.e. for multiple-Condors families, please fill out the form once for each player).
Also note that acceptance into the program is dependent on your athlete’s needs, the number of volunteer coaches, and space on the roster. Submitting a registration package does not guarantee acceptance into the Condors program.
