What Sets This Tournament Apart:
Lake in the Hills is unique in that it has a lake and the proper resources to offer these types of activities that other surrounding areas cannot. While others may have Ice Hockey; we literally put the "Pond" in "Pond Hockey".
Third Assist's Take:
We have an affinity for tournaments which bring the game of pond hockey back to its roots. Lake in the Hills Pond Hockey Tournament is one of the smaller tournaments we feature, but it has all you need for a fun environment surrounding the game. This is a local event which pulls in participants from all over, but most importantly you get the community here. These are often the most fun!
