Minnesota Hockey is excited to announce it will once again host a series of special events, designed to provide unique experiences and opportunities for players on community-based teams throughout Minnesota, at TRIA Rink in Saint Paul.
“We’re very excited to be able to host these events again this season,” said Mike Terwilliger, Minnesota Hockey’s Hockey Programs Manager. “We want every player in Minnesota to fall in love with hockey and create lifelong memories with their teammates. There’s nothing like community-based hockey, and we take a lot of pride in adding to that experience through events like these.”
The Honor the Game Peewee A Tournament, in partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance, will return for its second year on November 12-14, 2021. Lauded for its one-of-a-kind emphasis on sportsmanship and creating a positive experience for everyone involved, the Honor the Game Tournament is designed to show young players how they can be fiercely competitive while respecting their opponents, the officials and the game.
Minnesota Hockey’s fourth annual Ice Bowl Squirt C Tournament is scheduled for February 4-6, 2022. The Ice Bowl provides Squirt C teams with a special experience at TRIA Rink, the Minnesota Wild’s practice facility, in St. Paul including at least three games, a gift for each player and opportunities to tour the arena.
Two Four Corner Festivals will be held this season. The first weekend will feature 12U B teams on December 3-5, 2021 and then four Peewee B teams will participate in a second festival on January 14-16, 2022. The Four Corner Festivals bring together four teams from across the state and provides an opportunity to meet in St. Paul for high quality games and training. Unlike a traditional tournament, Minnesota Hockey’s Four Corner Festivals provide a combination of practices, small-sided games and full-ice games designed to challenge and develop both players and coaches.
Additional details on each event are available here and questions should be directed to Mike Terwilliger at firstname.lastname@example.org. Teams interested in participating in any of these events should complete the online registration.
