BA Update: Summer 2024

Dear friends, Look around your neighbourhood, what do you see? Everything is turning green, including the white soles of your fresh new sneakers. The air is full of birdsong... and tree pollen. If you listen really closely, someone off in the distance is cursing their lawnmower that won't start. Spring has arrived, and summer is around the corner! A fair warning, this email is long. Longer than the piece of paper Colin Raines keeps in his glove box listing all the players he has nutmegged over the years. Unlike that, this is (mostly) important information you (mostly) need to know. Welcome!...

BA Update: Winter Playoffs, Summer Registration

Good folks of the BA, No one could blame you for losing track of what time of year we're currently experiencing. Snowfall feels like something that used to happen in a past life. Grass and trees don't know if they are supposed to get on with the growing. Children come home from school in T-shirts, backpacks exploding with all the winter gear they needed that very morning. Believe it or not, it is April, and we are approaching a very exciting time in the BA calendar, as winter season enters the playoffs, and we look forward to the kickoff of our two summer leagues. Please give us a few...

BA Update: Summer of Soccer, Golf, and Soccer!

Dear BA Friends, What an unbelievable summer so far! If anyone had "wildfire smoke cancellations", "tornados", and "air-quality index" on their Bingo cards, congratulations! This is 2023, when people still carry their N95 masks, but put them on when they get outside, and remove them upon walking into a public place! A side note, for those of you still playing along at home, "LRT shutdown" is the free square on the Bingo card. It's been a couple of months since our last Update, so as you can imagine there's a bunch of important stuff we'd like you know. Please have a read; it will still take...

Congratulations to Bloody HammeRED

Like some of our favourite pairs of sunglasses in various lakes across the country, this has somehow, but not purposely, slipped all the way to the bottom of a lengthy email. Congratulations to Bloody HammeRED for achieving the rare indoor season double, winning a tight match against a resolute Suns of Pitches team, despite keeper Bodo's incredible heroics. It was a thoroughly entertaining match to watch, certainly worthy of a final. In other indoor wrap-up news, the Team Spirit of the League was co-awarded to Suns of Pitches and Man Shitty for picking up ZERO cards over the whole season and...

Bloody HammerRED take regular-season title in photo-finish final night

The ladies men in red captured top honours on the final night of the indoor regular season with a 4-1 gallop over TeamSnap(ed), and after Suns of Pitches lost their 8 p.m. must-win fixture 5-2 to spoilers par excellence Our Preferred Pronoun Is Green (they wear dark blue jerseys... go figure). A hearty BA “Well done!” to Yanic Giroux and his crimson comrades, and a special “Are you human?” salute to Yan himself, who scored all four goals in the title triumph.  Of note: At one point this indoor season (not that far back, in fact), five or six teams were within four points and a half-pint of...

SAGM Notes & Summer Registration Announcement

Hi again, BA friends! Here we are, already knee deep into March, mere days away from setting our clocks an hour ahead, the annual ritual that buys us a later sunset, all for the low, low cost of having our children wake up at some ungodly hour before sunrise. And so, in an attempt to put another snowy winter in the rearview mirror, let us turn to thoughts of summer soccer! As you probably remember, we are offering two flavours of summer footie this year with the BA: Wednesday nights at JDG Park, and the old faithful Saturday mornings at Potvin. Stop whatever you're doing and... wait, that...

Announcing Wednesday Night Summer Soccer!!

Hello gents of the BA, It's been a little while since our last update, surely an indication that things have been running pretty smoothly this winter season.
