As part of Third Assist's "Ultimate Pond Hockey Resource" we've reached out to the best pond hockey tournaments taking place this winter in the United States. We want to know where they're at, what makes them unique, and why we should visit this upcoming winter. Safe to say we're sold on the following tournaments.

U8 Mite Level
Size of the Tournament:
10 Tournaments total with two 4-6 team divisions

What Sets This Tournament Apart:
We put the fun back in youth hockey. Families can walk from their hotel room to our 60'x120' outdoor rink. Add in snow tubing and the fun doesn't stop.
Third Assist's Take:
This is one of those tournaments aimed at the whole family. Situated at Heritage Hills Resort, there's enough entertainment to keep the parents and kids entertained. With tournaments spanning the whole winter, this location is the perfect opportunity for the younger guys/gals to get exposure to the pond hockey world. A nice starter tournament in a very accessible location!
