The 12U girls faced two strong Regina teams. They struggled to make the shots count in the four games, but the Sharks still managed to win the bronze medal.

In the 12U boys division, the Sharks sent two teams. The Hammerhead team fought hard in each game, but couldn’t come up with a win in the round robin. The Tiger Sharks had better luck in the water, qualifying for the gold medal match with an undefeated record.
