Our team learned during training camp that even though some of us may have not have grown up in Israel, Israel is our home. In this same spirit, the entire team supports our decision to not play our scheduled playoff match in Oshawa this Saturday, on Shabbat, in recognition of Israeli culture and the uniqueness of the day. We will leave proud to have represented our values, our people, and our homeland.
