Waterloo Regional Police Service’s Blue C.R.E.W. Accepts Challenge vs. the Kitchener Ice Pirates

Blue CREW vs Ice Pirates

Waterloo Region, Ontario The Waterloo Regional Police Service’s Blue C.R.E.W. is gearing up to take on the Kitchener Ice Pirates and is calling on the community to come out and support both teams in an exhibition game on Saturday, February 22, 2020.

“We love the opportunity to raise awareness of inclusive hockey and have some fun with our friends, the Ice Pirates,” said Constable Greg Blundell, Waterloo Regional Police, “This is a wonderful chance to build relationships and enjoy the game of hockey.”

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. This is the third year that the Blue C.R.E.W. will play 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 1 p.m. at the Activa Sportsplex Arena. Please join us as we cheer on and give everyone a chance to play Canada’s favourite game.
