The 2020 All-Ontario PeeWee AAA Championship is being held by the Burlington Eagles. The Eagles found their groove in the 2018-19 season becoming OMHA finalists, and finishing second in their regular season play. They have continued their success this year due in part to their work ethic and their “All in, All the Time” motto. This team has also had a large impact on their surrounding community, gathering a combined 3,458,837 pounds of food through Gift of Giving Back annual food drive over the past 11 years.
The PeeWee AAA Eagles are hoping to make their mark at this year’s championship and finish in first during round robin play. They hope to use their close-knit group and strong team culture to propel them to success.
