Year Two, Silvertip Country. GAME ON.
We had such a great time putting together the Silvertips Street Hockey Challenge – and we know everyone had fun participating – that we’re bringing it back for round two, played over two parking lots, with more teams, spread over a larger area, with more chances for you to take home bragging rights and terrific prizes.
This year’s Silvertips Street Hockey Challenge will start at 10:00 AM on Saturday, July 23rd.
Much like last year, the tournament will be divided into separate age groups and skill levels – and adults are encouraged to join. The day-long tournament will take place adjacent to Comcast Arena in the parking lots at the corners of Broadway and Wall and Hewitt and Lombard, and at the Comcast Arena parking lot, located inside the walls at the corner of Broadway and Wall.
While every participant will receive a ticket to the Silvertips home opener in September, everyone will have chances to take home more prizes. Players who are selected to All-Division Teams will win team-signed memorabilia, while the select few from each division who make the All-Tournament Team will receive two Silvertips suite tickets for a game in the 2011-12 season.
Each team will be comprised of four to six players participating in 4-on-4 game play. The Silvertips will provide the nets, boards, and officials, while it is up to the teams to provide sticks and approved goalie equipment.
The competition will feature a round robin-style schedule, culminating in a single game elimination tournament. Teams will be placed in the following age groups: 9-12, 13-17, and 18+. To ensure good competition and a manageable schedule, we will place a cap on the number of teams in each age group.
Registration will cost $120.00 per team if paid by Friday, July 1st; on Saturday, July 2nd, the price will rise to $150.00 per team. An athletic trainer will be on hand to treat any street hockey-related injuries.
Can the Punishers build off their epic championship game in the 9-12 bracket?
Will Team Russia’s high powered offense carry them to another title in the 13-17 division?
Will the mighty Sting II go unbeaten wire-to-wire in the adult tournament?
