Changing times for Jasper PeeWee Bears

Losing an hour of sleep to a clock being set forward is tough. But it’s hardly noticed by la famille sportive where getting up early on weekends is the norm. This bleary-eyed bundling of equipment, lunches and carpoolers into a cold pre-dawn minivan that gets pointed at some small town gets old around March.

In the standings, the Jasper Midget Bearcats finished 10th in the Interlock Hockey League and second in the Sturgeon Pembina Hockey League.
