Blues Winter Training

Second last session under the dome, with out first exhibition game on May 6th, the season is fast approaching. So get ready to train at 1645 so we can hop right on the field.

Winter training continues this Saturday with the senior men, who are encouraging the juniors to join them. With 10 sessions, at the Lees Dome, we should have a great ability to keep our bodies ready for the season. These are full contact training sessions, with coaches being present and fun guaranteed. It is a 10$ drop in fee. JUNIORS ARE ENCOURAGED TO JOIN AND PARTICIPATE.


Saturday 5:00 – 6:00 PM

Jan 7 – Apr 8

Blues Kukri Custom Store


The custom clothing store has been set up for us through our rep at Kukri. For those of you unaware, our store runs for 2 weeks, so it’ll close on April 11th at midnight. All the clothing gets custom made, and should be in our club hands by the end of may. It comes in a package with your name on it so that Club can distribute it to you in an orderly fashion.
