Stephenville Crossing youth to represent Newfoundland in Canada Winter Games
Eagle Point Judo coach Tony Corbin is pleased to announce that members Jay Blanchard and Daniel Alexander have won the right to represent Newfoundland and Labrador, at the Canada Winter Games in Bathurst, New Brunswick. Jay and Daniel are seen below being presented with a cheque from the Town of Stephenville Crossing by the Deputy Mayor, Jerry Bennett.
Story update: The games are over and Jay and Daniel have returned with good memories that will last a lifetime. While the boys didn't medal they did represent the community and province proudly. The experience of competing at a National Level, with the best that Canada has to offer, is something they will never forget. The boys picked up tips and skills that will improve their own game and will be of benefit to Eagle Point Judo as they pass on what they have learned. They had the opportunity to meet and make new, life long friends and to see how people in another part of their country live. Jay and Daniel will be competing at the Atlantic Championships later this year.
