Sports LogoHockey camps to be shortened

The April demise of Memorial Arena won’t just spell a new home for some of Dalhousie’s varsity and   recreation teams, but also for its summer hockey camps as well.

Dal athletic director John MacDonald told the Gazette they have an “agreement in principle” with St. Margaret’s Centre in Upper Tantallon to become the interim home of the Dalhousie Superskills Hockey Camps. Instead of the full nine weeks, however, Dal plans to reduce the youth camp to 2-3 weeks because of the new financial reality of buying ice time. There is also a possibility the camp—which also includes a division for adults—will be travelling to different locations beyond the HRM.

Dal will reassess after their initial trial run whether they should expand the camp to its regular length while the university is without an arena.


Not so pretty in pink

It wasn’t the result they preferred, but the pink-adorned Tigers posted a commendable fight against the nation’s fourth best women’s hockey team Jan. 13 in St. FX. Janelle Parent and Alex Normore each had two goals to give the X-Women a 4 – 3 road victory.

Dal traded in their black and gold jerseys for pink that evening in the team’s annual fundraiser for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.


Ur invited to pro combine

Men’s soccer goalkeeper Ben Ur will get his shot at the pro game next weekend when he attends a United Soccer League combine.

The semi professional league in the United States invited the graduating Tiger to its prestigious event where 102 of North America’s finest prospects will showcase their talents to scouts from the USL and the higher-level Major League Soccer.

Ur’s invitation marks a significant milestone as this is the first year CIS athletes have been invited to attend. Ur was one of the four to be selected.
