Out of respect for a Haisla family who suffered a loss this week, the Haisla Street Hockey tournament will no longer take place in the Kitamaat Village. The tournament will now be held in the parking lot at Riverlodge Recreation Centre from 10 am to 4pm. Though NHL stars Bryan Trottier and Gino Odjick will be there to meet players at 9am.
The schedule for the hockey tournament is based on the teams that signed up. So there will be two age groups only:
- 6 to 8 years old
- 9 to 12 years old
As well, the tournament will be one day only, Wednesday, August 14.
Players don`t need their own equipment but are encouraged to bring some if they have some. Specially designed Haisla and Brian Trottier hockey sticks will be provided to every participant.
Everyone is welcome!
A community dinner will follow, also at the Riverlodge Centre. Doors open at 4pm, after the tournament. Dinner at 5pm. Bring your own plate, bowl and utensils.
Thanks to sponsors LNG Canada, Haisea Marine, ESS Compass Group Canada and Superior Propane for helping to make this happen.
