83 teams took part in KEYSA tourney
The KEYSA Tournament at Sam Steele Days was a resounding success! We had 83 teams competing from 10 to 18-years-old. It was lots of fun, with lots of people!
The older teams played at Moir Park and the younger teams played at Mt. Baker, so visiting families got to see a good deal of the Sam Steele festivities.
We had many comments from team members, coaches, families and officials on how great the tournament was and how much fun there was at all the events throughout the community.
We were lucky enough to host a variety of different teams, many new to our tournament this year. We had 25+ teams from Alberta, teams from Fernie, Creston, Castlegar, Trail, Nelson, Invermere, Golden, and of course our local teams. Everybody was great, everyone had lots of fun, and families were a very respectful and fun cheering section!
KEYSA would love to thank all of our volunteers and organizers; all of the local companies that contribute to our tournament; as well as all of the teams and families who made the trip out to play! Everyone plays an integral part in making this tournament so successful, and the biggest tournament in the East Kootenay!
Our sponsors to thank would include: East Kootenay Community Credit Union; Booster Juice; Dairy Queen; McDonalds; A&W; Cranbrook Photo; Economy Vacuum Tankers; Kootenay Communications Limited; Jason Wheeldon Personal Real Estate Corp; Players Bench; Sandor Rentals; The City of Cranbrook, The Sam Steele Days Committee; and New Dawn Developments.
All teams put in so much effort, and after all the fun, the blood, sweat and the tears, here are the standings at the end of The KEYSA Tournament at Sam Steele. (KEYSA Rovers Teams are in BOLD)
