Kootenay Kannibelles (All Star team) – West Kootenays BC
The Kannibelles are the travel team, made up of skaters from across the league. We continued to rise in 2012, from fifth overall at the Western tournament in 2011 to second at the Westerns held in Nelson 2012 and ranked as high as fifth nationally. By coming second at Westerns we secured ourselves a spot at Nationals, to be held sometime in early 2013. We played in front of a home crowd for the first time this season, having played all of our bouts in 2011 on the road. With a can-do spirit and strict guidance in both health, fitness, and strategy, the team motto is, “get fit to come to the Belles, not at Belles.” We also took the approach this year that in training, everyone does everything – block, jam and pivot. Our aim was to have a team of triple threats.
The Belles were fortunate this season to represent six of the seven house teams, and for a team made up of skaters from different house teams we became incredibly close. Twenty-seven skaters were part of the Kannibelles at some point through 2012. We had a remarkable 8 – 1 record. The Belles are hungry and always ready to feast.
Athleticism and fitness.
Strategy and knowledge of all aspects of the game.
Lack of drama.
