Local Girl to Attend as 1 of 8 Goalies in U18 High Performance Provincial Camp in Salmon Arm!


I am very proud to announce that Shaylene has been selected to attend the U18 High Performance Provincial Camp in Salmon Arm April 23-27, 2014.

Evaluators collected data from the past year and the top 80 players (8 Goalies, 24 Defense, 48 Forwards) were selected and invited to a four team U18 Cup.

The event consists of games, practices, and off ice technical training, and fitness testing. We will be challenged in an elite, competitive environment. Players born in 1997 and 1998 will be identified throughout the 2013-2014 season by Female High Performance evaluators and asked to attend the U18 BC Cup. The event will feature the top 80 athletes on four (4) Jamboree format teams created by the Branch Coordinator. The first two (2) days of the event will consist of practices, team building and fitness testing. The remainder of the weekend will consist of games where players are evaluated on their performance. The top players will advance to Team BC Provincial Camp.

Congratulations Shaylene, We are proud of your efforts and hard work on and off the ice.

LOVE from Mom, Dad, Jared and Derek.

P.A.R.T.Y. Program Presented to Gold River Teens

The P.A.R.T.Y. (Prevent Alcohol and Risk Related Trauma in Youth) Program came to Gold River this past Tuesday, April 1st.   This is a program created to educate teens of the tragic and disastrous consequences that can occur with risk taking behavior.  It was put on by Island Health in conjunction with our local BC Ambulance Service, Gold River Volunteer Fire Department, RCMP, the Gold River Health Clinic and SD #84.

The program takes teens through a variety of interactive stations that depict the path of a trauma patient through the hospital to possible rehabilitation.

The students start together with an introductory session and then are divided into smaller groups which rotate through the following interactive stations:

Crash Scene: The students are shown an actual crashed car. Paramedics and first responders lead them through a description of what likely happened by looking at the damage. They then demonstrate some of the equipment used on scene and show the students what would happen on scene and on route to the hospital.  The crash scene you see here was located in the Municipal Building parking lot.

Trauma Room:  The students see a fabricated casualty (one of their fellow students) connected to all the equipment that would be used in a trauma resuscitation when they arrive at the hospital.  A trauma nurse works through the scenario, describing what it would look and feel like to be a trauma patient.  They were also shown the morgue room.

Disability/Rehabilitation Station:  This station simulates what it might be like to be left with a permanent brain or spinal cord injury.  Students are asked to do basic activities which simulate brain and other motor control injuries.  Here students are shown trying to put on and then button a shirt, and to open and drink a juice box.

Consequences Station:  RCMP officers  engage the students in a conversation around some of the other implications of their decisions. They talk about different levels of intoxication, discuss N and L licenses, talk about crash scenes that they have personally attended and what it is like to have to notify Next of Kin.  This took place in the Gold River Fire Hall.
