Capital Classic Pond Hockey Tournament
The Capital Classic is an old fashioned game of 3 x 3 shinny done Canadian style - on natural ice - in the great outdoors - next to a beer tent!
Join us on Saturday, February 18th, 2017 in the heart of Hawrelak Park where 40 teams of 5 players will face off 3 on 3 in a round robin tournament to crown Season 1's Capital Classic champion. Enjoy a day of on ice good times, a heated beer garden, fire pits, live entertainment, and food from our onsite vendors.
The net proceeds of the event are to be directed to our charities of choice, Uncles and Aunts at Large and Adaptabilities. We ask that you join us in partnership to benefit these essential charitable groups.
