SIX NATIONS — Iroquois Roots Rugby hosted a youth game for the first time at the Six Nations Blue Track in Ohsweken.
“Another one for the Roots history books as the Hamilton Hornets and Norfolk Harevesters Minis came to our community as we hosted for the first time!
The Ohente Kariwatekwen (opening address) was done by our friend Joe [Martin] who then had everyone up dancing as he sang some awesome social songs. Nia:wen Joe!
The crowd was delighted to watch the best of Southern Ontario’s small but mighty rugby players run, rip flags, pass, catch and tackle their way into everyone’s hearts.
Our concession stand was always lined up and featured Squire’s fresh squeezed lemonade and Angel’s yummy ham and scone.
Thanks to our Jr and Sr Girls for doing an awesome job volunteering. The 50/50 was won by Melody Coucherene. Congrats! We’re lucky to have the best rugby photographer part of our organization, thanks Tek! Thanks to the Dostal’s for being there and for sponsoring the event!
Thanks to the family and friends who came out to cheer on our little athletes, and to Coach Meg for reffing fair and fun games. We had the best day and we look forward to so many more!”
Iroquois Roots Rugby also announced on August 28, that they were able to offer registrations for free with sponsorship support from eight sponsors.
