Big News Today! With only one week left until tryouts begin, PPF Captains are excited to announce that PPF vet Melissa Dunbar will be providing her valuable knowledge, skills, and coaching abilities to the team as our Practice Coach! She will be at tryouts, and attending our weekly practices to coach the team with feedback, strategy, and grit.
Melissa has played PPF for 6 seasons, of which captained 2 seasons, won a gold in 2014 & a bronze in 2018 with PPF, and in 2014 was named CUC MVP.
She played at WUGC 2016 on Team Canada Women’s where they won a bronze medal.
In her own words: "My goal for the season is to continue to push PPFers to develop their skills, improve their field sense and their defensive intensity."
Although she is rostered on and competing with Iris (an elite women's team in Quebec) this summer season, her reason for playing Iris is to gain more knowledge about and improve her skills by playing under a skilled and successful coaching system, so she can continue to bring back new information and strategy to her own community.

Tuesday April 23: 6-8pm

Saturday May 4 (invite only): 10am-1pm
