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.
Location of Tournament:
215 Water Street, Port Perry, Ontario
Time of Year:
Saturday, February 8th, 2020
Ages Welcomed to Play:
Size of the Tournament:
20+ Teams per year
Spectator activities, Skill shot games for children, Silent auction
What Sets This Tournament Apart:
A well-respected charity tournament run by a non-profit Search and Rescue organization benefitting a local charity every year. A fantastic opportunity to play a fast-paced pond hockey game with hockey fanatics, while giving back to the local community.
Third Assist's Take:
The local ones are some of the best. This is a smaller scale tournament, but they’re open for new teams to join in. With all proceeds going to local charities this is a good competitive time, but ultimately the tournament is there for fun and a good cause. Lake Scugog is only about one hour from Toronto proper which means this tournament makes for a prime occasion for hockey’s weekend warriors. Check out the links below to learn more and get involved.
