Symmetrics dominates rest of Super Week

After earning the top three spots in the Tour de White Rock on July 14, the Symmetrics Cycling team followed up with strong showings in the Tour de Gastown on July 18 and Tour de Delta on July 21.

In slippery conditions, Svein Tuft placed third in the Tour de Gastown for the men, while teammate Leah Goldstein placed second for the women — not the results the team was hoping for, but the best that they could expect with the tough conditions.

Symmetrics made up for it in the Tour de Delta, with Andrew Pinford winning the men’s race, and teammates Zach Gell and Christian Meier joining him in the top-10. The lead group had more than 49 riders by the end of the tough race, and finished within one second of Pinfold. Whistler’s Will Routley, who won the Tour de White Rock the previous Sunday, stayed with the group to finish 17 th — 0.14 seconds back of Pinfold.

 

Minor Hockey League gearing up for season

The Whistler Minor Hockey Association (WMHA) is getting ready for the upcoming season by hosting a hockey skills and scrimmage camp before the start of the school year.

The camp will run from Sept. 3 to 7, and will be led by WHMA coach Kevin Sopp. Kids aged six to 17 are invited, with limited space for 75 skaters.

The camp will feature two on-ice sessions per day — a skills session for an hour and 15 minutes, and a controlled scrimmage for an hour. For Bantam players there will be skills training on body contact, while Pee Wee players will focus on angling.

The group will be divided into two camps, one in the afternoon and one in the evening.

The fee is $150, which includes ice time.

Registration forms will be available at Sportstop in Whistler Village or by contacting Kevin or Jennifer Sopp at admin@whistlerallstarhockey.com . All players must pre-register for insurance reasons, and no last-minute registrations can be accepted.

In addition to camps, the WMHA has announced plans to field rep teams for Atom, Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget divisions, with tryouts in early September.
