The U8s didn’t have the same kind of competive structure as the older players. The Goats won most sportsmanslike team, an honour voted on by their peers while the Cream Soda won the dragon race.

The U8 didn’t have a traditional competitive tournament but instead the players took part in a skills competition with older players pitching in to help.

A fun coaches’ game and dragon races at various times helped add some fun to the weekend.
