November 8th, 2010 marked a day in Canadian Ball Hockey history that those involved will soon not forget. On this day Masters Team Canada ventured on a journey to represent the Canadian Ball Hockey Association at the inaugural Masters World Cup in Bratislava, Slovakia.
When the reigns of this team were handed over to CBHA Hall of Famer George Gortsos and General Manager Mike Schweighardt, the pair decided that the team would best be built with a particular mandate in mind. The first of which was that the team will not be built to win at all cost. Secondly the team will be ambassadorial and represent the great history of our association and country with the pride and honour it has built. The last piece of the puzzle was to celebrate the sport of ball hockey with our friends from around the world.
As such the team was comprised with six provinces represented and formed with Team Canada alumni, national championship all-stars and recreational players who have not played at a high level but who have done great things by taking the sport of ball hockey around the world. Next was to bring a professional but ambassadorial staff into the mix. Team Canada’s inaugural coach Dan Ranalli was the right person for the job as Head Coach, as was Associate Coach Domenic Di Gironimo who would round out the crew to run the bench. Next a crackerjack medical and training team led by none other than Dr. Jason Su, Marta Dos Santos, Matt Halverson and last but certainly not least Harvey “Superman” Boutiler finalized the team. Most of which have multiple World Championships with various Team Canada squads.
The players and staff absorbed an instant chemistry from first the first greeting to the last farewell of the journey. As old friendships were rekindled, new friendships bloomed and it was an amazing sight to see the team extended these friendships to the other participating nations as well as the most hospitable host committee form Slovakia, which made for a most memorable event.
Although the team came home with a Silver Medal for their second place finish in the event, they also came home with much more than that. The friendships formed, camaraderie experienced and ball hockey memories that are engraved in their minds will be celebrated for the rest of their lives.
Wort des Präsidenten
Präsident der ISBHF
Another key ISBHF BOD meeting was held on Sunday February 17. Many key issues were discussed and here is a quick synopsis for our ISBHF family.
We heard from the nation of Luxembourg who has a youth and adult ball hockey program running in this key new European nation. This organization has a board and infrastructure to add to our growing strength in this area of Europe which bodes well for all nations. The ISBHF BOD passed the application of Luxembourg and thus we have a new family member to join our family of nations. Welcome Luxembourg!
