Major Atom Crowned Silver Stick Champs
The Leeder & Associates Major Atom Jr. Attack won the Regional Silver Stick tournament this past weekend in Vaughan.  The Attack ran the gauntlet going 5-0 over the weekend.

The team started the tournament off with wins on Friday over Port Credit and Willowdale 6-3 and 7-1 respectively.  Two wins and +9 goal differential earned the Jr. Attack 1st place after the preliminary round which was crucial.  It allowed them to receive a bye through the first round of elimination games and the ability to sleep in Saturday morning before their quarter final match up with the Toronto Eagles Saturday afternoon.  A 3-1 win over those Toronto Eagles allowed the Jr. Attack to advance to the semifinals Sunday morning.  The semifinal turned out to be a rematch with Port Credit who came out hungry to avenge their earlier loss to the Jr. Attack.  Alex Harris made a blocker save on a breakaway for the Jr. Attack and then his team mates took over.  The Jr. Attack scored early and never looked back advancing to the finals with a convincing 6-2 win.  The final matched the Jr. Attack up against the home town Vaughan Rangers.  The Rangers came out ready to impress in front of their home town fans and in their home rink.  Eric Meikle made some critical saves early to help withstand a push from the Rangers.  It took a period for the Jr. Attack to get going but in the second and third it was all Attack, ending in a 4-0 win and the championship banner! 

Alex Harris and Eric Meikle back stopped the team, while Ryan Cranny, Kole Hutchinson and Cooper Charyna led the team in scoring.  Defensively the team shut down the opposition in every game, especially the final, limiting Vaughn to only 7 shots.  In a unanimous decision, Emmett Arthur was voted team MVP. 

On January 18 the Leeder & Associates Jr. Attack will travel to Sarnia for the International Silver Stick Final tournament.  Anyone who has gone through minor hockey and played in Silver Stick knows how special this opportunity is for these players and coaches.  It will no doubt be a great weekend in January.

To see this team play come to the Julie McArthur Regional Recreation Centre on Saturday, December 8 at 2pm when they host the Elmvale Coyotes.

Connect Rehabilitation|Yoga|Fitness
CONNECT opened in May 2019 out of a need for MORE. More 1-on-1 time with our patients, more time learning about you and your goals, and more focus on doing the things that we know will help you in the long term. That meant creating a space that provided more than just the highest quality physiotherapy, chiropractic, and massage therapy services. It meant we needed a space where we could empower people to take active control of their health, and provide them with the specialized group fitness, yoga, and cycle classes that they needed to accomplish that. CONNECT is an enigma in both the healthcare world and the fitness world. We don't fit nicely into either box, but we know that the way that we bring the two together is going to help change the way we think about and manage our own health.
