Deserving Recognition for our Prez!
A huge congratulations to our organization's President, Mark Vuksan on receiving the Croatian-Canadian Chamber of Commerce Community Achievement Award at the 2022 Business Excellence Awards Gala.

As we all know, Mark is a true leader and inspirational Hamilton Croatia visionary that has overseen this organization for over twenty years!  A truly deserving recipient who we hope will be around helping this organization for many years ahead!

When asked to comment, in true Mark fashion, he thanked everyone who has been involved in any capacity along our journey in building the special community we now have running so well up at Hamilton Croatia.  The organization's members and active volunteers make our Croatian community centre what it is today - an inclusive place for everyone to gather and build on what our earlier generations started when they first came to Canada. 

Bravo Mark, congrats and well deserved!
This Sunday!  We are in the Finals!
Join us this Sunday as Croatia Hamilton's Men's A Team tries to capture it's seventh Hamilton Spectator Cup championship and first since 2009.

The game kicks off at 5 p.m. at Bishop Tonnos High School field (100 Panabaker Drive, Ancaster)

Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at our Bocce Bar during business hours tonight or tomorrow, or at the game on Sunday.

Wishing our men's team good luck in Sunday's final!
Switching gears to our younger athletes...
Sunday, August 28: Year-End House League Picnic

On Sunday August 28, there is a Super Sunday picnic to officially conclude our summer house league program.  Players and parents were notified as to the timing of their final training session at the picnic which will be followed by a medal ceremony and lunch for each young athlete under the canopy.

This picnic has quickly become one of the busiest events of the year for the club as our soccer program continues to grow and attract interest from many across the city both at the house league and rep level.  This is no doubt a result of the quality program and positive experience in the early grassroots years that our house league offers.

A special thank you to all of our players, coaches and parents for making this year such a success.  We invite our entire membership and friends of our organization to join us at this special picnic.  Food and Drinks will be available throughout the day with live music and other exciting activites for people of all ages!
September 3-4 Labour Day, Croatian Soccer Tournament

Every year the North American Croatian Soccer Association works with local Croatian clubs to host both a Youth and Men's soccer tournament from teams across Canada and the U.S.A.  As the impacts of the pandemic are not quite totally removed from a travel perspective, the youth tournament back in early July was cancelled.

As a result, this year's men's tournament, which takes place every year on Labour Day weekend, will include a youth stream to offer Croatian clubs and teams across Ontario and other parts of Canada a chance to have their young talent compete in a fun and competitive environment.

The tournament will take place at Budd Park in Kitchener at: 1111 Homer Watson Blvd, Kitchener, ON
