Brock women's hockey pushing anti-drug message

Brock women’s hockey team will  host a Clean Sport awareness game this Friday.

In a release, team officials say the pressure to use performance enhancing drugs to get bigger, stronger and faster isn't only placed on professional athletes, youths are also being introduced to these drugs at a younger and younger age.

To help combat the problem, the Badgers women’s hockey team will host more than 1,000 elementary and high school students and teachers on Friday, in an awareness game for clean sport.

The event to be held at the Seymour Hannah Sports Complex will see the Badgers take on the University of Toronto Varsity Blues.

Before the game, students will have lunch and listen to a number of guest speakers. The message will be that youths can succeed in their sports, activities and lives without the use of appearance and performing enhancing drugs.
