Team of the Week

The CSSC Team of the Week program is all about recognizing teams that are dedicated to positive sportsmanship and playing with a fun-first mentality.

How it works: Each week throughout the season the CSSC will recognize one team for their positive attitude and great sporting behavior. To be eligible, teams must first be nominated for the Lady Bing Award in a given season. All nominated teams will then have a chance to submit a photo and a short biography in order to be eligible for a Team of the Week Prize.

Prize: Each Team of the Week winner will get a shout-out on CSSC social media and also receive a $100 gift card to a CSSC Sponsor Bar.

You can help us recognize great sportsmanship by nominating a team for the Lady Bing Award. Click here to nominate a team!

Thunder Ninja Kids   
Captain: Cynthia Nilsson

Night/Div/Sport: Monday Recreational B Dodgeball 
Seasons in the CSSC: 10+
Nominated by: Brook Graham
History: The Thunder Ninja Kids are named after a ridiculous movie from the 80s where martial arts genius children defeat evil. It is a terrible movie and all of our members are old enough to have watched it, so we’ve been playing for a while.

Buk Hockey   
Captain: Seema King

Night/Div/Sport: Monday Recreational Ball Hockey
Seasons in the CSSC: 10+
Nominated by: Dana Andrews
History: 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 hope to continue to play together for many more years to come, rather in Floor Hockey or any of the multiple other sports provided by the CSSC.  We sincerely appreciate being selected for the Lady Bing and hope to continue playing with a ‘fun-first’ attitude to make the game more enjoyable for everyone.

Polar Bears   
Captain: Shawn Hyer 

Night/Div/Sport: Sunday Recreational Turf Soccer 
Seasons in the CSSC: 5
Nominated by: Josh Idowu
History: The Polar Bears are a group formed with wonderful teammates both new and old. Our love for sport and making friends is what brings us together and unites us. Our team isn’t a group of people that have known each other forever but a group of people that definitely know how to have fun! Thanks to the CSSC we get to share our interests on the field and off the field with an occasional drink and bite to eat. We believe we’re a prime example of where there’s passion in your heart and good people around, fun isn’t too far away either.

District 5    
Captain: Jeff Lindstrom

Night/Div/Sport: Tuesday Recreational A Ball Hockey 
Seasons in the CSSC: 5
Nominated by: Matt Armstrong
History: The origin of our team number was from a Mighty Ducks movie.  More of less the under dog team trying to prevail! I would say this is probably our 5th season and typically play in the Winter and Spring. I love playing goalie as it’s something I’ve done since I was a kid.  Growing up I played a lot of street hockey and floor hockey.  The captain of our team introduced me to the CSSC and that you have Floor Hockey as a sport so needless to say I was super excited to be able to play again! Coincidentally they needed a goalie too! Some players have come and gone over the years but most of our core has stayed intact. Just wanted to say we enjoy playing floor hockey with the CSSC and I tell friends and clients about it and your leagues.  I really find it’s a good way to break up the week, get some exercise, socialize and have some fun! 

Team Bio
Injured AF-C    
Captain: "Moose" Abed

Night/Div/Sport: Sunday Recreational Turf Soccer
Seasons in the CSSC: 10+
Nominated by: Josh Idowu 
History: Injured AF-C is the greatest iteration of a team that has been running for 5 years! Our skills include keeping the ball too long, missing chances, postgame drinking, being best friends, and injuring ourselves. Our awesome & often injured roster includes: Allie, Amjad, Barry, Chris & Felicia, Christina, Colin & Taylor, Dylan & Sophie, Hardip, Kara (C) & Moose (A), Leo, Linsay, Lindsey, Liz, Mike x2, Patrick, Ray, and Tom!

Team Bio
Dandelion Kickers    
Captain: Brittany Fleck

Night/Div/Sport: Tuesday Recreational Gym Soccer 
Seasons in the CSSC: 5+
Nominated by: Josh Idowu  
History: This team stayed together for over two years switching between indoor/outdoor/turf soccer (and one volleyball championship while maintaining the Dandelion Kickers team name). With a hiccup in timing, we needed to move nights this past fall and were only able to maintain a small core group of people. Picking up some new faces we are continuing to be active and more importantly having fun!
