Cricket Fever Hits BGC!

On Saturday April 20th members from the PYC and Britannia clubhouses were treated to a hands on cricket demonstration in the Britannia gymnasium. Members learned how to run, field, and throw before trying their hand at a live batting session to cap off the day. Smiles and laughter were in good supply as the instructors walked members through a series of fun drills aimed at introducing the sport to children. Everyone did a fantastic job and really picked up the techniques quickly. At the end of the day everyone agreed that they’d love to learn more about the sport and can’t wait to try playing a live game down the road. A huge thank you to Carlo and his Youth Cricket Academy team for putting on this awesome clinic!

As a hard fought regular season gave way to an exciting end of year tournament in each of our three ball hockey leagues, three champions were crowned in 2013 edition of PAL Ball Hockey.

McCann captured the Senior Championship with a hard fought victory over Britannia in the finals. PYC narrowly edged Britannia by a goal in an extremely exciting Intermediate final. And the PYC Juniors were able to defend their championship in the Junior finals with a closely contested Junior Final.

A huge thank you goes out to all of our players, volunteers, coaches, and staff who put in countless hours organizing these leagues this year. 2013 truly was a huge success and the quality of play was some of the best we have ever seen at the Boys & Girls Club.

Thanks again and see you all next year!
