With Joey Moss singing the anthem to kick off the afternoon, the 7th Annual Edmonton Floor Hockey tournament couldn’t be more epic.

Over 300 athletes from 10 Special Olympics affiliates competed in a full day of floor hockey. Not only did athletes from northern and central Alberta go against the best of their fellow athletes in their division, this year’s tournament also served as a qualifying event for the 2019 Special Olympics Alberta Winter Games in Calgary.

The 18 teams from Edmonton, Strathcona County (Sherwood Park, Fort Saskatchewan), Red Deer, Airdrie, St. Albert, West Central (Spruce Grove and Stony Plain), Olds, Wetaskiwin, Grande Prairie and Vegreville competed in four divisions in a full day of floor hockey on Saturday, November 25 at the Northlands Edmonton Expo Centre.

“THE COMPETITION IS JUST UNBELIEVABLE. OUR ATHLETES ARE TRULY ELITE ATHLETES,” SAID CELINA COMEAU, GENERAL MANAGER OF SPECIAL OLYMPICS ALBERTA-EDMONTON.
