The sooner we get the 6th team, the better!
Peak Performance had a solid 14 guys last season and with more wanting to join this Organization, fitness club Owner and GM Rodman Batson says this year he might just build 2 teams, the question remains, will the 2nd team be in Div 1 or Div 2?
Who’s the best team in Brandon?
The Pitbulls are the defending Champions, and are in talks with Pet Valu on naming rights this year. With a new general manager Dustin Ferland, getting the team together, they opted to sign up a new netminder Terry Spence. “Might as well just give us the Keg now” he says. lol.
The North Stars were happy to hear Pitbulls starting goalie last year became available, signing up Derrick Genaille as their starter for this season. “Watching him play last year and helping the Pitbulls win the Keg with an injured arm in net was impressive” He’s got the talent and with new speed on the team picking up free agent Shaun Theiessen this year, we have a good chance of getting our names on the Keg this season”.
If your a free agent, or gm looking to put a team in, contact Brian by texting 306-421-2000, registration can be done online at www.nextplay.ca and team deposits can be made in person. $250.00 with the remaining $500 to be made into 2 more monthly payments.
