The 6th Annual Players’ Family Appreciation Weekend

A Big Valley Welcome to Axemen Hockey Family Members

Athletics - A3The Acadia Axemen have two important games this weekend as they face the CIS #7 ranked SMU Huskies and the 2015 CIS University Cup host St. FX X-Men. But there is another reason this coming weekend mark’s a very special weekend for the Acadia Axemen players. This is the Axemen family appreciation weekend, where our players’ family are invited to travel to Wolfville to spend time together & with the team, experience Acadia University, while enjoying two home games while they are in town.

This is the 6th annual weekend for the event, and it has been a great success in the past, and event organizer Sonia Richards believes this weekend will be no different; with 20 families travelling to Wolfville, from places as far as Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

Coach Darren Burns had this to say about the event, “We are extremely excited about the impact and importance of our family weekend. It has become a staple of our program. It is important for us as a team, for our families to experience Acadia, together.”

It is a great event for the families of the 1st year players to get to know the town, the University, and the players surroundings; and for the veteran players, the families look forward to seeing other families they’ve met up with in years past to enjoy watching their sons, brothers, nephews, or cousins suit up for the Axemen.

If you see one of the Acadia Axemen players’ families in town this weekend, be sure to give them a great big Valley welcome! Let’s fill the rink again this weekend and show the Axemen players’ families our support for their Axemen!
