MANITOULIN—Right to Play hosted a series of workshops in area First Nation communities through its Hockey for Development Program, which concluded with a group hockey tournament over the weekend.

Right to Play Sports Development Manager Lauren Simeson explained that the team was visiting a different community every night last week, working on refreshing and developing hockey skills, leading up to all the communities getting together for a tournament held over the weekend in Wikwemikong. The communities included Wikwemikong, Sheshegwaning, Aundeck Omni Kaning (AOK), Whitefish River First Nation (WRFN) and Wasauksing First Nation (WFN), an Ojibwe community near Parry Sound. Each community also received new hockey equipment including skates, helmets, gloves and sticks.

Also as part of the program, Right to Play volunteers, including some big names in hockey such as Olympic gold medalist, retired Toronto Furies player and television sports reporter Tessa Bonhomme, came out to partake in the fun.
