Waterloo Regional Police Service’s Blue C.R.E.W. Take On The Kitchener Ice Pirates

Posted on Thursday March 07, 2019

Waterloo Region, Ontario The Waterloo Regional Police Service is again calling on the community to join its Blue C.R.E.W. members as they take on the Kitchener Ice Pirates in exhibition games on Saturday, March 9, 2019.

“This is another opportunity to raise awareness of inclusive hockey and have some fun,” said Constable Greg Blundell, Waterloo Regional Police, “The Blue C.R.E.W. had a great time competing against the Cambridge Ice Hounds last week, and this is another chance to build relationships with our friends, the Ice Pirates.”

The Kitchener Ice Pirates was established in 2008. Since then, the program has provided children and adults with developmental disabilities, from across Waterloo Region, the chance to participate in a hockey program that is tailored to their specific needs.

The Blue C.R.E.W. (Cops and Rangers Educating Waterloo Region) was launched in 2009 as a partnership with the Kitchener Rangers with the shared common goal of building a safer and healthy Waterloo Region. Last year was the first time that the Blue C.R.E.W. played against the Ice Pirates. The focus of the games will be to foster positive attitudes between police and the players of adaptive hockey.

This is a free event at Activa Sportsplex at 12 p.m. Please join us as we cheer on and give everyone a chance to play Canada’s favourite game.
