3on3 Road Hockey
Sign-in begins promptly at 8:00 am, closing at 8:45 am. (Advance registration is required.) Players are invited to enjoy a complimentary pancake breakfast from Cora’s. Additional sponsors include the Kerr Village BIA, Oakville Scion, CareerBuilder, Cameron’s Brewing Co., Hopedale Bowl, Oakville Blades, Rusty Skates, Canlan Ice Sports, Hustler Boardshop, The Sanctuary, Tim Hortons and Global View Capital Advisors. This all day event will conclude at approximately 5pm with the presentation of the esteemed Kerr Cup to the Divisional Winners.
Says BIA Executive Director Richard Messer, about the impact of this highly anticipated annual event, “The 3on3 tournament has raised more than $50,000 for charity since its inception in 2006. But it’s so much more than a fundraiser — it’s a community builder. A venue like this one truly helps to create a feeling of belonging and a sense of neighbourhood pride.” He also thanked the 2012 tournament sponsors.
An exciting new addition to the March 17 tournament is the Media Challenge. Donate a loonie to your favourite celebrities – CTS, The Weather Network, Animation Nation Army, CHCH, and TVCogeco – as they too play for charity. Over 20 teams have already registered and there is still room for a few more. Registration can found at: 3on3roadhockey.ca/
