I was fortunate to be part of the Yukon Elementary Hockey School tourney on Wednesday, as it was very well run and lots of kids had a great time.

However, there are at least one or two schools who enter two teams because they have a large number of students. I think it is unfair that they break these two teams up into two groups Ð a Grade 3, 4 and 5 team and a Grade 6 and 7 team.

The other schools can’t compete against a hockey team made up of Grades 6 and 7s ! They should all be divided evenly from Grades 3 to 7 so all schools have a chance to win.

Hopefully next year we will, for once, see a change!!
