Battle of the Bears Playday is a Success!

Battle of the Bears Playday is a Success!

On Sunday April 17th the Colorado Bears Field Hockey Club hosted the Boulder Bears and Denver Bears at the East Boulder Community Center, in Boulder, CO for the 2023 Battle of the Bears Playday!

To celebrate the success of our two training sites, the Colorado Bears hosts an honorary Battle of the Bears Playday during each youth season: Fall, Winter, and Spring.

Boulder Brown Bears celebrate after scoring a goal!

This year, the Bears welcomed 76 athletes split between 10 teams: 3 in the Cubs Division (K-3rd), 3 in the Little Bears (4-5th), and 4 Middle School/ High School Teams (6-9th). These teams celebrated the kick off of Spring with a series of round robin games against their peers. Beginners were welcomed to this event, as a learning opportunity and a chance to play!

Thank you to all of the parents who made this scrimmage day possible and to our incredible coaching staff for bringing the magic every time they step on the field together. Congrats to all of the athletes who participated.

Coach Colleen, Boulder Little Bears Coach and Site Coordinator, is all smiles while working with her team: Boulder Grizzly Bears!
