Ladies Broomball In Full Swing!
out of the way!
What a swing!
Ladies Broomball is in full swing at Shelburne's Centre Dufferin Recreation Complex (CDRC) each Sunday as two games are played starting at 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. This game is not as easy as it looks. It might look like stick hockey, but factor in the ice, just trying to navigate, you have a workout you won't forget soon! there are presently four teams and the league is looking for more players. While most players are comprised of Shelburnites, there are quite a few players from out lying areas. High School age girls who are looking for a challenge are welcome.
Organizer, Leesa Peat commented, " We started last Sunday. We have 4 teams again and play every Sunday at 11am or 12pm. The league will be in our Ladies Auxiliary Craft sale this year selling baked goods for a league fundraiser to try and off set the cost. Craft sale is 12 & 13 of December."
The sport is very popular and Peat is hoping that once the word is out that the league is up and running, more participants will be attracted commenting, " The team names are Roy's Chicks, Horizon's, Striders and Ferrets (Alliston). We have girls on our team coming from Milton, Down town Toronto, Angus. Horizon's goalie comes from Kitchener. I guess we all love the game so much they are willing to travel."
And the desire to play is definitely having something to do with the fast paced action, ultimate skill on your feet and the challenge to score with these very skilled players. If you thought Broomball is for the fain of heart, check out a game. You will not be disappointed. The speed of the ball can take you down with the impact if you do not have your wits about you! Facebook Lesa Peat if you could like to find out more about this league over 20 years strong or visit Shelburne Ladies Broomball on Facebook.

Find out what this young Shelburne Curling Club Member has her sights set on!
The interview with Shelburne Curling Club Coach John Gregory and his daughter, Kaelyn Gregory has a lot of of background noise because Shelburne Curling Club members know how to enjoy themselves during a Fun Spiel!
Interview With Shelburne Curling Club Coach, John Gregory Reveals
Shelburne Curlers Have Talent!
The Shelburne Freelancer caught up with Shelburne Curling Club Coach, John Gregory and his daughter, Shelburne Curling Club member, Kaelyn Gregory during the Shelburne Curling Club's End of the season Fun Spiel. Young Gregory is only sixteen years old but has been Curling since she was 7, when she was then in the Little Rocks Division. With her drive, skill and determination, Gregory has no problem with setting her sights high and her father has every faith in her and her team mates.
"You have to be in shape to Curl. It's important to stay fit. I play other sports with my high school, I jog, and Curling is a work out in itself," explained Gregory adding,"I play second and it's a vigorous position."
Gregory knows what it takes to win and is prepared to work as hard as she can to achieve her goals. Gregory's ultimate goal is to play at the Olympic level and she is focused on the big picture.
As revealed in the short video interview, there is a lot of talent in Shelburne and one day we may get to watch Kaelyn achieve her goals.
Shelburne Curling Club Executive Board Member, Tom Little explained that because the Club's ice comes out March 28th, the Club hosted a Two on Two Fun Spiel consisting of 32 players. "We've only got a couple weeks left so we're doing fun things before the season ends. A Fun Spiel is a slightly different format and it's just for fun, it's not to be taken seriously."
As the Shelburne Club is financially self-sustained, the Club rents the lounge out during the off season beginning in April through to October. The lounge comfortably accommodates 50-60 people and is often rented out for birthdays, anniversaries, company lunches and other events. Because the club is self -sustaining financially, it's plain to see the investment may seem like all money raised is for the club, but in reality, kids like Gregory spend so much time in their safe environment, honing in on their skills encouraging them to achieve goals, the investment is clearly in Shelburne youth and the community.For more information go to www.shelburnecurling.ca
What a great Curling Club and it's right here in Shelburne!
