Wow, what can you say about this tournament. Over 80 kids on the ice playing over 100 games in a day and a half!!
Canterbury hosted the inaugural tournament and nothing could prepare us for the enthusiasm, energy and joy that emanated from all the children participating. This is what ice hockey is all about and we can’t wait till next year’s tournament which will be bigger and better! Thanks to Auckland and Queenstown for attending and congratulations to the Auckland Spiders who took out first place.
