Akiva Hockey team participated in the McCaig Gladiators Ice Hockey Festival February 2016 this Wednesday in Rosemere. The kids had a great hockey experience; building their on-ice skills, playing in a real tournament environment and seeing other teams in action. As an multi-cultural international event, Team France and Team Japan also attended the tournament and our Akiva team had a great time meeting and playing Team Japan. Good sportsmanship, skill building and competitive fun were the themes for the day.
