U9 White Participates in Orange Jersey Project
Last night, our U9 MD White Team was privileged to welcome a guest speaker, Carmen Jones with them as they learned about Truth and Reconciliation and what it means to wear an orange jersey.

Carmen is a long time friend and teammate of coach Zach Carson, and through this connection and his employment with M’Wikwedong and Indigenous Sport and Wellness Ontario, he joined us to share his knowledge.

Crescent Athletic Club
The Crescent Athletic Club of Owen Sound, Ontario was envisioned and founded in 1920 by like-minded sportsmen as a viable way to bind interests, commitments and the continuance of minor sports teams in the community. Historically a not-for-profit men's organization with the aim to support local athletic teams. Today the club functions in much the same way it was originally fashioned. A place for members to meet and greet in the club rooms for drinks, camaraderie and some gifted gab. Club banquets and sports events like golf, darts and curling tournaments generate proceeds to help keep the club running and to raise donation funds for minor sports teams in Owen Sound when it is possible to do so. 2022 was a historic year as the Crescent Athletic Club celebrated 102 years.
