Canada SportsASRAB Competes at the 2017 Canadian National Goalball Championships on April 21 – 23 in Westminster, BC!

Our Senior Men’s and Women’s Goalball Teams are in New Westminister, BC ready to compete at the 2017 Canadian Goalball Championships.

ASRAB is pleased to announce the Senior Men’s and Women’s Teams:

Coaches: Trent Farebrother and Darren Hamilton

Men’s Team: Aron Ghebreyohannes, Paul McKnight, Blair Nesbitt and Aaron Prevost

Women’s Team: Brieann Baldock, Meaghan Hargrave, Tiana Knight, Caitin Higgins and Ruby Soliman

Our Coaches report that “Both men’s and woman’s teams have worked very hard over this last season and we have seen significant improvement in both individual and team play. We have a lot of options with our players and are very excited about this competition. On the men’s side we have all experienced veterans. On the woman’s side we bring a mixture of youth and experience as we have two junior players (fresh off of a silver medal at Junior Nationals two weeks ago) and four returning senior players. The coaches and players would like to thank ASRAB and all the volunteers that have helped make this season very memorable and successful”.
