A couple of thoughts on the CWOSSA hockey tournaments that were played earlier this week in Kitchener and Guelph.
On a positive note, CWOSSA seems to be finally starting to understand the importance of social and maintstream media when it comes to the promotion of its events.
Updates were far from perfect and there is still plenty of work to be done but it was a step in the right direction to see CWOSSA make the most of Twitter to keep us in the loop.
In future years, it would be nice to see scoring details and upcoming matchups made available, but we'll take what we can get.
Baby steps, right?
The CWOSSA girls tournament, of course, was marred by players from Elmira and Preston being told to skip the tournament to be ready for their evening games for PWHL and Kitchener Minor Hockey teams.
It turned CWOSSA into a bit of a joke and took the shine of an important high school tournament.
The boys tournament was dominated by the Orangeville Bears and it proved how difficult it is for Waterloo Region teams to compete against teams that use players that compete for all-star teams out of school.
To make matters worse, the Orangeville squad is a young one and will likely be better in 2015.
And let's do parents a favour and stop hosting these events on university campuses that charge ridiculous prices for parking.
There are plenty of other options in the CWOSSA region.
