Students from Isabelle Sellon School and Livingstone School took part in a 4-on-4 floor hockey tournament put on by the RCMP on Thursday April 4th.

Constable Jordan Ayoub and a team of volunteers were on hand to help the tournament along and enjoy in the experience with the students.

Cst. Ayoub says that this tournament was a great way to engage with some of the youth in the community.

“We talk about the youth being a strategic priority for the RCMP nationally and within our division here in Alberta. Youth engagement is a really big part of what we do.”

The tournament also gave some high school students from CCHS a chance to gain volunteer experience as they played alongside the younger students during the tournament.

The idea for this tournament came from Cst. Ayoub’s love of the game and knowledge that this community is fairly hockey driven.

“I’ve played hockey all my life. It’s something that I could easily connect with the kids in the community. I know it’s a hockey driven community from my time coaching in Pincher Creek and here so hearing that this was something they brought forward and said they’d be interested in doing was great.”

This is Cst. Ayoub’s first time organizing an event of this scale.

“We’ve done a couple other talks in school but as far as doing something to this degree it’s new. We’ve combined two schools to play against each other and it was nice to be able to get both communities together on this scale.”

It was a day full of fun for all the students involved.
