Teams of six will lace up for some great 4 on 4 outdoor hockey action on 75' * 150" outdoor rinks (approximately 80% of the size of an NHL rink), in temperatures ranging from -3 to -15 degrees Celsius. Games are non-stop, 30 minutes long and with no goalies, off-sides or icing calls incredibly fast paced and very entertaining.
"The beauty of pond hockey is its' pure and simple form" states John Reed tournament organizer for the series. "It takes you back to the day when you were a kid, and that true sense of fun and freedom you had playing with friends on a backyard rink or frozen pond", states Reed.
The site for the Northern Regional Competition is West Lake Provincial Park, a short drive from the hockey metropolis of Prince George, and the site for the Western Regional competition is the boutique mountain resort town of Rossland, BC in the West Kootenays. Both are great venues, and the timing of the Western Regional Championship is such that it coincides with Rossland’s 114th winter carnival.
