Night/Div/Sport: Monday Rec Multi-Sport
Seasons in the CSSC: 4
Nominated by: Owen B

Calgary Kookaburras
Captain: Ciara L

Night/Div/Sport: Tuesday Rec Multi-Sport
Seasons in the CSSC: 4
Nominated by: Nicole D
History

Our team is called the Calgary Kookaburras and we LOVE the Multi-Sport league. This is our 4th season competing in the league (under various different names) and every year we have new people wanting to join! We mostly met each other through the Calgary Kookaburras Australian Rules Football Club and this is a fun way for us all to stay connected in the off-season. We have people from Canada, Ireland, England, and Australia, so nobody has a clue what anyone is saying to each other or what is going on at any given moment....which seems to work well for us. Our peak 'performance' usually comes during Kinball week because it involves flailing limbs, lots of shouting, and a knowledge of no rules whatsoever. There was nearly a mutiny this year when we realized that Kinball wouldn't be on the cards this season, but we've accepted it. When we play Aussie Rules together in the summer the main aim is making sure everyone is having fun and enjoying themselves, so this club ethos has carried over into our Multi-Sport team as well. Our favourite weeks are those where there's good banter with the other team and watching our Irish, English, and Australian teammates get destroyed by the Canadians when it's ball hockey week.

We just just started last Fall playing Basketball and have a blast every week

Seasons in the CSSC: 2
Nominated by: Jordan I
History

We're Janelle and Miranda, the duo behind Mid-Court Crisis! Friends for almost a decade, we've tackled numerous academic competitions together, but sports were uncharted territory until recently. Pickleball entered our lives just last season, prompting us to choose a team name that reflects our response to a particularly fierce smash. Our favorite aspect of the sport is the opportunity to hang out every week, connecting with the fantastic individuals on other teams, sharing laughs over our less-than-perfect shots, and rejoicing in the brilliance of our (often accidental) successful shots.

Multigrain

Nominated by: Thomas T

Previously The Ultimate Rizzbaes for Spring Ultimate, The Slopokes for Summer Slo-Pitch, and Cold as Balls for the Sno Pitch Tournament, the girls have come together once again to create the formidable Multigrain for Fall Multi-Sport. We enjoy Multi-Sport, every week, with a new sport, comes new hope. We think “Maybe this will be our sport”, but every week we are harshly mistaken. In fact, in our entire CSSC three-season one tournament history, we have never won a game. Despite this, we always show up eager to play (even through the mercy rule) and our positive attitudes are maintained alongside our perfect loss record. We remain optimistic that maybe next week will be our sport to win.

History

Introducing Team Parma. A squad of 10 young athletes, united by a love for Soccer, and a bit of playful humour. Our team name is inspired by the lingering scent of fresh pasta in the morning. 
As we embark on our second season, the bond we forged last year as an individuals team was so strong that we decided to make Team Parma an ongoing adventure.
We thrive on the warmth of shared company and witty banter with a diverse cast of characters. Including our Italian host, who invites host who invites everyone to dinner, the friendly French Canadian, our Mexican angel, and our local crazy cat lady, just to name a few. 
Together, we've created a multicultural, pasta-fueled soccer journey that's as unique as it is unforgettable!

We're Hallie and Alicia - Dill With It! We picked up our Pickleball paddles for the first time this Fall, thinking that if the sport was nearly as fun as it's name, it had to be a good time.

The CSSC has allowed all of us to rediscover our love for Basketball!

Getting Oldies
Captain: Sarah-Jayne B

Night/Div/Sport: Monday Rec D Multi-Sport
Seasons in the CSSC: 17
Nominated by: Sam F
History

This rag-tag team of Oldies has been playing with the CSSC for a number of years in a variety of leagues. Our team has a network of relationships consisting of; couples, siblings, coworkers, and Brad. Multi-Sport is no place for a showcase of talent, but rather an excuse to gather with our fellow Oldies and see if we've still got it (we do not). While we may lack the youthful energy of many of our opponents, we make up for it in outdated references. When we're not struggling to catch our breath at Multi-Sport, these Oldies can be found attending local condo board meetings, scheduling colonoscopies, getting a start on next years tax returns, or enthusiastically bird-watching. Led by our fearless and injured coach, we believe we can achieve close to anything, even the highly coveted League Champ shirts!

CF Dyslexics United
Captain: Matthew D

Night/Div/Sport: Wednesday Rec Turf Soccer
Seasons in the CSSC: 1
Nominated by: Karlie S
History

We're CF Dyslexics United and we're a first year team with the CSSC.

When not on the pitch, we can usually be found around the city, at various sponsor pubs, or taking part in other CSSC tournaments!

We have been playing every season, year-round (we don’t stop!). Our favourite part is that we get to play a new sport each week, and then after each game we go discover a new place to socialize. Over the years we have grown as friends and even have team activities on the weekends. We are named the Baby Belugas because after each game we have a stuffed “trophy” that we give to the Beluga Player of the Game (Hooray!). The members on our team have grown over the years and this summer season they include: Akash, Alisha, Celia, Edbert, Emily, Ermin, Julia, Landon, Liam, Mike, Neil, Ryan, Tori, and Tyler.

Bunt Stuff, the Co-Ed slow pitch team that's been 'pitch-slapping' the competition for 6+ amazing seasons! (Not actually though, our record is very, very sub .500). With each passing season, our crew grows as we welcome new teammates into the mix. We are always stoked when Spring rolls around and we can get together and build more friendships and memories. We have a diverse group of impressive young professionals on our team that love a little friendly competition. Bunt Stuff is more than just a name – it's a symbol of our common interest, love for the game and... bunts.

Last September, 6 strangers signed up for their company’s corporate challenge volleyball team. After surviving tryouts the team began spending time together through volleyball practice, after practice beers, and giving each other the nod when passing each other in the hallways at work. Unfortunately, the team was not as successful at corporate challenge as planned and were eliminated in the first round. To continue to hone their volleyball skills and take home the gold this year, Chris, Jenny, Alex, Johnny, Kendra, and Olivia began playing in the CSSC where everyone continues the tradition of after game beers and all around having a good time.

Our Kicks Don't Lie
Captain: Sam K

Night/Div/Sport: Wednesday Recreational Kickball
Seasons in the CSSC: 2
Nominated by: Jacqui H
History: 
Our Kicks Don't Lie in its current form emerged as a Kickball team in 2021 with the merger of a few teams that got started during the hectic pandemic seasons. Originally a merger of two different 2020 teams that liked each other enough to hang out in the field together post-game. The team now includes players from several different kickball individuals teams, friends of friends, people we've met playing CSSC Curling, and some seasoned Kickball veterans for good measure. We're out each week to play our best, socialize as much as possible, and experiment with Shakira inspired cheers!

Ringers
Captain: Heather T

Night/Div/Sport: Tuesday Recreational Slo-Pitch
Seasons in the CSSC: 1
Nominated by: Cailynne S
History: 
A group of Ringette parents crazy enough to form a Slo-Pitch team in their late 40’s and 50’s. Most of us haven’t played on a team in years (and years) although we have filled the role of coaches, managers, fundraisers, etc. for our children's teams.  Despite our questionable athleticism, loose grasp of the game, and our age, we enjoy coming out and continuing the friendships we have been lucky enough to make over years of watching and traveling with our girls for Ringette.  We are definitely a “fun first” team. Our goal for the year is to have some laughs, enjoy playing together and the other teams, to want to come back and play next year, and to not run out of Advil or Icy Muscle Gel before season end!

Wine and Cheese
Captain: Kyle N

Night/Div/Sport: Wednesday Rec Plus Multi-Sport
Seasons in the CSSC: 10
Nominated by: Sam
History: This will be our teams 10th season of Multi-Sport. The team name came about after we decided to form our Multi-Sport team at a “wine and cheese” party.

Captain: Chantel C

Night/Div/Sport: Thursday Rec Badminton
Seasons in the CSSC: 1
Nominated by: Denise
History: We wanted a team name was cute, and not intimidating because we are new to Badminton in CSSC. We picked a bunch of birdie names and drew from a hat and ended up with Birdie Buddies!

'Berta Ball'd Eagles
Captain: David C

Night/Div/Sport: Monday Rec Dodgeball
Seasons in the CSSC: 12
Nominated by: Zane
History: The 'Berta Ball'd Eagles are a formidable Dodgeball team that has been dominating the courts since their inception in 2016 under the name "My Balls, Your Face". After six seasons, the team rebranded to reflect their soaring spirit. Our star player is the steely faced hotshot known as the "Laser Rhino". He strikes fear into many hearts as his ball turns the air into plasma as it slices its way through time, itself.

Grass in the V
Captain: Jenn C

Night/Div/Sport: Tuesday Rec Turf Soccer
Seasons in the CSSC: 14
Nominated by: Freda
History: We are “Grass In The V”!

What started as an individual’s team back in 2014, kept going season after season with our captain, Jenn, stepping into the manager role in 2016. Team members changed every few seasons and some team members joined as small groups when our numbers were low – and when some of our team members needed a season off to recover from injuries.

We love to play soccer and we aspire to be a fun team that likes to get competitive to win (sometimes). Above all else, we enjoy reconnecting with our teammates, who have become good friends, week after week and challenge to keep each other active.

We are (L to R) back: Todd, Theresa, Ryan, Greg, Mark, Tonia

Front: Colleen, Vernon, Lauren, Dic.

 

Mark came up with the team name just this year (January 2023) and we all thought it was perfect. Although our roster hasn’t been the same, some version of this team has been in the league for just 1 1/2 years. What we love about Masters Ball Hockey, is that it is a great workout, it is great fun, it is very social, and we love the healthy competition! 

Here to Serve
Captain: Steven K

Night/Div/Sport: Wednesday Recreational Indoor Volleyball
Seasons in the CSSC: 2
Nominated by: Annica
History: We are Here to Serve and this is our second season in the Recreational tier of CSSC Indoor Volleyball. The name of our team comes from the eagerness to help in our community and our church. The senior pastor and people involved in our church in the NE of Calgary are part of our team. Here to serve is a motto of the volunteers at the church and it so happens that applies to the volleyball court, as we are literally all 'here to serve' at least a couple of times per game.

We were bottom of the league last season, and during this winter season we tried our best to turn things around, and managed to finish in first place for the play-offs. We love playing volleyball, as it allows everyone in our team (ages 18- to 50), to play and be part of a group effort. We play for the fun of building a stronger team, improve our volleyball skills, and as an excuse to hangout with our teammates.

Timbits at Heart
Captain: Curtis Thorssen

Night/Div/Sport: Tuesday Rec B Outdoor Soccer
Seasons in the CSSC: 18
Nominated by: Gladdylyn
History: We are Timbits at Heart! Our team has been playing CSSC soccer together since Summer 2018 and have also had seasons of Ultimate Frisbee and Flag Football together through CSSC. Over the years we have wholeheartedly embodied our team name, running after the ball en-masse just like we did when we were children. With each passing season we have grown to play better positionally, but that will never stop us from cheering for each other and stopping mid-game to compliment the plays of our opponents. We appreciate how CSSC has given such easy access to the beautiful game and has built a (generally) beginner friendly experience for us to introduce new players to the sport. Our team is looking forward to many more years with CSSC, and hopefully playing against us will help other teams adopt the "Timbits at Heart" mindset as well.

Team Bio
Bomb Squad
Captain: Cailynne Smith
Night/Div/Sport: Wednesday Rec South Slo-Pitch
Seasons in the CSSC: 2
Nominated by: Courtney
History: We are the Jagerbombers or Bomb Squad (for summer season) and have been playing together since Spring 2022 but have been friends for the majority of our lives. Many of our players have grown up together, meeting in elementary school, junior high school, high school, or university/college and have remained friends ever since. Our main roster this spring season is Alex, Brennan, Cailynne, Colton, Hanna, Jackson, Jake, Kiefer, Nolan, Sam, Shae, and Tyler. Our team mascot, Ruger is at our every game barking us on and loves meeting new friends. We are truly an energized group that shows up to every game with heart, humour, and hydration. We are grateful for the opportunity that the CSSC provides for us to come out and have some fun while meeting some genuinely awesome individuals!

Friends and Family FC
Captain: Dillon Traber
Night/Div/Sport: Tuesday Rec Plus A 11 v 11 Outdoor Soccer
Seasons in the CSSC: 3
Nominated by: Sam
History: Over the past 3 years, Friends and Family FC has been getting together to play within multiple sports and leagues across CSSC. While some of us are family, and hopefully all of us are friends, our team name was derived out of the need for a sports community after graduating from university teams, moving cities, and missing the life-giving nourishment that is playing sports with your friends and family. CSSC has provided an amazing avenue for for making new memories, laughing at how out of shape everyone has gotten, and inviting in others to join with us in the sports that brought us all together to begin with. On the Soccer Field, we take pride in laughing at eachother when we trip over our own feet, enjoy trying out bizarre asymmetrical formations, and reminding each other that “you just aren’t in the shape you used to be”. While most of our Physio allocations for the year have run over, this spring and summer with CSSC has been one for the memories!

Ruthless Babes
Captain: Ben Frenken
Night/Div/Sport: Monday Rec Plus Slo-Pitch
Seasons in the CSSC: 14
Nominated by: Jamie
History: The Babes stole their name from a far more creative person in another province and have been using it shamelessly in about every Spring and Summer CSSC Season since 2016. For a group of qualified "legends" ignoring their breaking bodies, the social aspect of 16 games a year is the highlight and reason to meet up every Monday night. The Babes started a not-for-profit of the same name in 2018 and put on two annual fundraisers (Softball and Curling) to raise money for youth sport organizations around Calgary.

Captain: Alison Baker
Night/Div/Sport: Sunday Rec B Beach Volleyball
Seasons in the CSSC: 1
Nominated by: Naomi
History: The story began back in April of 2022 with two girls named Alison and Amie wanting to play Beach Volleyball. With little friends and no skills, the two lovely ladies began their adventure to put a team together. FINALLY, they found enough friends and tried to sign up… but little did they know how popular Beach Volleyball was and their dates were sold out… and then sold out again. So, after losing a few players gaining a few players and pure luck we got into Sunday Recreation! After our first game we all looked into each others’ eyes and said THANK GOD we are in the recreation division because we truly are 2 Legit 2 Hit the volleyball haha! But we all bring laughter and fun to the court, so what we lack in skills, we bring in FUN! This is truly the underdog story of the year, will we win the championship this year… probably not but hey as long as we are having fun, and the other team is having fun, that's perfect. Cheers to a new sport with new friends!

The Rubber Duckies
Captain: Carmen Song

Night/Div/Sport: Tuesday Rec Multi Sport
Seasons in the CSSC: 2
Nominated by: Nicolas
History: The Rubber Duckies .. where do I begin. Our team is quite unique in the fact that it’s our second season together and we have yet to win a single game! That definitely takes a LOT of talent if you ask us! We’ve had a handful of close games .. okay maybe that one hockey game and have been mercied more often than none but it’s the high level energy and ever burning spirit the team exhibits towards one another, the game and other teams that keeps us coming back each Tuesday (and a third season). Honestly I have to say, the fact that we all came together as an individuals team at first and have now created an everlasting bond with one another especially moving from another province to Calgary and meeting everyone makes this team very memorable and has a special place in all of our hearts. Quack quack!

Here For Beer
Captain: Ali Evans

Night/Div/Sport: Monday Rec Slo Pitch
Seasons in the CSSC: 2
Nominated by: Cody
History: Hello! We are ‘Here For Beer’. The name says it all! There are large ships, there are small ships, but there is no ship-like friendships. 2021 was our inaugural season and we are starting 2022 off with a bang! At any game, we will likely have a minimum of 4+ dogs cheering us on (unfortunately no doge’s pictured here), but we would be lost without our furry friends. Our favourite part of playing the game is getting to spend time outside with friends. Looking forward to playing the rest of the season!

Scared Hitless
Captain: Courtney Powell

Night/Div/Sport: Sunday Rec Slo Pitch
Seasons in the CSSC: 1
Nominated by: Ryan
History: Have you ever watched a baseball team play that was so in sync, it was as if you were watching a well-oiled machine? The plays are completed with ease, the communication is clear and concise, and the hits are almost always out of the park. If that’s the kind of team you like watching, look no further than Scared Hitless. An eclectic group that shows up to every game with heart, humor, and hydration. There were doubts as to whether a team with our skill set and passion could be put together, but in the eleventh hour it came together. You will never find a team who laughs so hard, chirps as intensely or cheers as loud as this group of people. Seasons from now, we will become the team to beat, but right now we are the team you need to meet.

Our team consists of Byron the Bruiser, Rachel the Rioter, Mark "the messiest Messier", Wheezy Mike, Tyler the Ghost, One Ankle Jeff, The Great Wall of Tim, Hattrick Patrick, and Lady Jules of Hockeyton.

Seasons in the CSSC: 1 - Rookie Season!
Nominated by: Josh Idowu (GC)
History: This is 'Chafing the Dream's first season with CSSC. We started as a group of teachers and the team has quickly expanded to include spouses and friends. Though we haven't won any games, we are likely in first place when it comes to attendance at the soccer centre bar post-game. We are a fun-loving team who don't take ourselves too seriously and this will most likely be our one and only season in Rec Plus, but we plan on playing together next season in the rec division.

Hack Attack
Captain: Marnie Palmer

Night/Div/Sport: Saturday Recreational Curling
Seasons in the CSSC: 1 - Rookie Season!
Nominated by: Warren Wall
History: This is the inaugural year for Hack Attack. Our team captain is Marnie AKA Sarge, followed by Alana AKA Bankshot. The remaining members include Cam, Brayden and Mike but they don’t get cool nicknames as they have to earn them. Lastly, it is a popular belief that our team is here for a good time and perhaps a long time if we take home the championship!

Master of None
Captain: Leah Fraiberg

Night/Div/Sport: Monday Rec Multi-Sport
Seasons in the CSSC: 3
Nominated by: Kennedy - The Airdrie Crew
History: The multi-sport league inspired our team name - Master of None. A Jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one. Our team was forged in friendship. We’re a team of lovers and fighters. We’re all about style points, high fives and halftime juice boxes. Although not particularly great at one sport, multi-sport has allowed us to showcase the teams' general athleticism and commitment to having a good time!

Our team enjoys playing different sports and going for pints afterwards. Current team members include Ermin, Mike, Julia, Celia, Jake, Bhaskar, Tori, Liam, Edbert, Alisha, Chris, and Landon.

Buk Hockey
Captain: Seema King

Night/Div/Sport: Wednesday Recreational Ball Hockey
Seasons in the CSSC: 24
Nominated by: Sam Francois (GC)
History: Buk Hockey is made up of a group of friends that were initially outsiders but eventually came together as a team. Our team name was initially created as we wanted something to represent our lifestyle.  We try to live the “Buk-Wild” life and mixing that with our love of hockey; Buk + Hockey = Buk Hockey.  We particularly liked our name as “Buk Hockey” sounded like a large, bold, and vicious team name when, truth be told, none of us are exemplary in size or ball-handling skills.

We have now played together as a team for over 6 years playing every season with a mix of floor hockey and now trying our hand at basketball. Although our performance has at times been lacking, we seem to end up always finishing on a strong note with teamwork and fun as our main priority.  We hope to continue to play together for many more years to come, whether in Floor Hockey or any of the multiple other sports provided by the CSSC. We sincerely appreciate being nominated for the Lady Bing and hope to continue playing with a ‘fun-first’ attitude to make the game more enjoyable for everyone.

History: This will be our teams 10th season of Multi-Sport. The team name came about after we decided to form our Multi-Sport team at a “wine and cheese” party.

Captain: Chantel C

Night/Div/Sport: Thursday Rec Badminton
Seasons in the CSSC: 1

History: We wanted a team name was cute, and not intimidating because we are new to Badminton in CSSC. We picked a bunch of birdie names and drew from a hat and ended up with Birdie Buddies! 

Chantel has played 8 seasons in various other sports like Ball Hockey and Volleyball, but hadn't played Badminton until this season. This is Ashley’s first ever season with CSSC. She already wants to enroll again for the Spring Season!

We love meeting new opponents and figuring out their style of play. We always have fun and have met other teams who like to have fun and laugh with us.

'Berta Ball'd Eagles
Captain: David C

Night/Div/Sport: Monday Rec Dodgeball
Seasons in the CSSC: 12
Nominated by: Zane
History: The 'Berta Ball'd Eagles are a formidable Dodgeball team that has been dominating the courts since their inception in 2016 under the name "My Balls, Your Face". After six seasons, the team rebranded to reflect their soaring spirit. Our star player is the steely faced hotshot known as the "Laser Rhino". He strikes fear into many hearts as his ball turns the air into plasma as it slices its way through time, itself.

Grass in the V
Captain: Jenn C

Night/Div/Sport: Tuesday Rec Turf Soccer
Seasons in the CSSC: 14
Nominated by: Freda
History: We are “Grass In The V”!

What started as an individual’s team back in 2014, kept going season after season with our captain, Jenn, stepping into the manager role in 2016. Team members changed every few seasons and some team members joined as small groups when our numbers were low – and when some of our team members needed a season off to recover from injuries.

We love to play soccer and we aspire to be a fun team that likes to get competitive to win (sometimes). Above all else, we enjoy reconnecting with our teammates, who have become good friends, week after week and challenge to keep each other active.

Front: Colleen, Vernon, Lauren, Dic.

 

Mark came up with the team name just this year (January 2023) and we all thought it was perfect. Although our roster hasn’t been the same, some version of this team has been in the league for just 1 1/2 years. What we love about Masters Ball Hockey, is that it is a great workout, it is great fun, it is very social, and we love the healthy competition! 

Here to Serve
Captain: Steven K

Night/Div/Sport: Wednesday Recreational Indoor Volleyball
Seasons in the CSSC: 2
Nominated by: Annica
History: We are Here to Serve and this is our second season in the Recreational tier of CSSC Indoor Volleyball. The name of our team comes from the eagerness to help in our community and our church. The senior pastor and people involved in our church in the NE of Calgary are part of our team. Here to serve is a motto of the volunteers at the church and it so happens that applies to the volleyball court, as we are literally all 'here to serve' at least a couple of times per game.

We were bottom of the league last season, and during this winter season we tried our best to turn things around, and managed to finish in first place for the play-offs. We love playing volleyball, as it allows everyone in our team (ages 18- to 50), to play and be part of a group effort. We play for the fun of building a stronger team, improve our volleyball skills, and as an excuse to hangout with our teammates.
