The Alberta Sport Development Centre – Central (ASDC-C) is pleased to announce that the ASDC-Central Athletes of the Month for September 2017 are the Titans Rugby U18 Girls Team.

In a departure for the Athlete of the Month award ASDC-Central has chosen the entire Titans U18 team as worthy recipients for capturing Gold at the Alberta Rugby Union’s 2017 U18 Girls Provincial Championship with an utterly dominant 107 – 0 win over the Edmonton Nor’westers.

Both teams entered the championship game undefeated for the season but it was the Titans who proved their dominance.  The Titans outscored their opponents 722 – 81 over the course of the season.  When discussing their performance it is important to remember that only a few short seasons ago the Titans were coming off a winless season.  The Titans are composed of 28 girls from 5 communities (Red Deer – 17; Rimbey – 4; Rocky Mountain House – 4; Lacombe – 2; and Byemoor – 1).

The Titans were led by Courtney Holtkamp, Lora Lee, Leah Brunner, and Gwen Fillinger to name a few. Courtney & Jada Holtkamp, Leah Brunner, Gwen Fillinger, Lora Lee and Rachel Sever all went on to play with Team Alberta U18 this summer, as did Camryn Holland with Team Alberta U16. Courtney Holtkamp led Team Alberta (captain and tournament leading scorer) to a Gold Medal at Nationals. Courtney Holtkamp (ASDC-Central’s Athlete of the Month for April 2016) also competed for Team Canada U18’s in international play competing in Ottawa this summer vs USA U18’s in a 15’s competition. Courtney recently returned from France where she competed with Team Canada U18’s in a Rugby 7’s competition..

Two years ago, Titans Rugby (through the initiative of Head Coach Kenton Poelzer) created the School of Rugby initiative and partnered with ASDC-Central to provide strength and conditioning, mental skills and nutrition seminars to the areas rugby youth. It appears that that partnership is paying dividends.

ASDC-Central thanks Tom Bast Sports for celebrating the ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month recipients by the provision of commemorative apparel for each recipient.

Organizers of The Battle of Alberta are thrilled with the results of an incredible fund raising effort drawing together fans and players of Alberta’s two NHL clubs for a festival of fund raising and fun.

Alumni and Current Players of the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers travelled from across North America to the Red Deer Golf and Country Club for the inaugural “Battle of Alberta”.

The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre has expressed gratefulness to the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers organizations for their support.  They also thank the team of volunteers who made every aspect of the fundraiser possible.  Finally and most importantly, hats off to all the sponsors who gave the better part of two days of their time and made massive financial commitments as well.

Here’s event co-chair Al Sim from a press release at the outset of the tournament:

Mark Jones, Chief Executive Officer of the CACAC, together with the centre’s staff and service partners, couldn’t be more pleased with this inaugural event. “Supporters of the centre have worked tirelessly since the formation of the coalition group who were determined to help with the desperate need for child advocacy in Central Alberta. We are collectively changing the way Central Alberta responds to child abuse. The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is a not for profit organization, governed by a board of directors that works in an integrative partnership with the Central Region Child and Family Services, Alberta Health Services, Alberta Justice, Alberta Education, the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre, and the RCMP to better service children, youth and families impacted by sexual abuse and the most serious/complex cases of physical abuse and neglect”.

The centre has professionals onsite dealing with the criminal aspects of the case, as well as child protection, medical and psychological needs of child victims and their families. Onsite professionals include police officers, physicians, nurses, social workers, psychologists, and crown prosecutors with the common goals of: improved timeliness in the coordinated assessment and investigation of child abuse cases; increased access to support and therapeutic resources for the child and their family; enhanced collaboration among partners; more efficient and effective use of resources; increased knowledge and awareness of child abuse in the community.

Working collaboratively, we achieve greater results than any partner could on their own. It blends investigation, treatment, prevention, education and research with expertise to provide an integrated practice approach: wrapping around children and always “working in the best interests of the child”.
