Blizzard Soccer is saddened to hear of the passing of one of our Club founders, Gordon Hawkins on December 19th. In 1967, Gordon, along with Marino Sedran founded the Calgary Blizzard Soccer Club when they took a team of 11 and 12 year-old Calgary boys to represent the province of Alberta at an Expo 67 soccer competition in Montreal. The Club has grown substantially over the years with 75 Blizzard teams participating in Calgary Minor Soccer each season. We extend a huge thank you to Gordon for everything he has done for our Club. A memorial for Gordon will be held on January 6th, 2017. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Hawkins family and friends during this difficult time.
