It’s been a long process but the North Hall gyms have finally cured and are ready for use! We resurface the gym floors every two years with the North Hall getting done on odd years and the South Hall/Competition Gym getting done on even years. With the gyms reopening yesterday, we needed someone to break them in and who better than a bunch of kids playing basketball! Today, Basketball Alberta’s youth clinic had the honour of being the first major event on the new floor. Not only did these kids get a chance to hone their basketball skills, but they were coached by members from the Canadian Women’s National Team. We are the home court for the Canadian Women’s Team and it was great to see them showing these youngsters the ins and outs of the game. The National Team has been here all week in preparation for the upcoming season.
Summer is generally the slow season here at the GO Centre but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing going on. We have two major tournaments scheduled this weekend and next week to close out June.
Edmonton United Volleyball Tournament – June 24
The Great Canadian Shootout – June 30
Look for more on the Great Canadian Shootout in next week’s GO Sports Newswire.
