“Geoff Galindo Memorial Shield”
To all Media:
The Escondido Sports Center located in Kit Carson Park will be hosting the 2nd Annual "Geoff Galindo Memorial Shield." This is a roller hockey tournament for all school teams enrolled in the Winter 2010 season. The tournament is from Wednesday November 17th to Sunday November 21st. This year we have 35 school teams competing for the “Shield” in the Varsity, JV, and JHS leagues. We are a regional facility and school teams from many different districts compete at the Escondido Sports Center.
Sergeant Geoff Galindo passed away in November 2008. He was a big part of school roller hockey at the Escondido Sports Center, coaching and helping to form many school teams from Jr. High to the Varsity level. The Escondido Sports Center staff, in partnership with the Escondido Police Officers Association, is very proud to honor Sergeant Galindo with a tournament at the school league level.
