The tournament was a success drawing out hundreds of students and their parents. This was a great opportunity for us to connect with the youth in our community and highlight girls in sports. The event also had educational components for students to learn about the RCMP and the role we play in keeping Canada safe. We want to encourage young people and especially girls to consider the RCMP as an employer, said Inspector Todd Preston, Officer in charge of West Shore RCMP.

The West Shore RCMP are planning on making this tournament an annual event. A big thank you goes out to all of our sponsors whose donations made the event a success, and a big congratulations to the tournament winners Claremont Secondary School Senior girls team!
