2017 Winter Tournament - March 4, 2017Updated Saturday March 11, 2017 by Daniel Goggiano.
Thank you to all who participated in our Winter Youth Tournament last weekend! We ended up with a longer one-day tournament due to the threat of weather interruptions on Sunday (which we ended up receiving a few inches of snow in the valleys so we would have had some problems). We had our local teams from Sierra Inline Hockey as well as teams from Elko and Bishop.
Overall, as Tournament Director I felt like this tournament went well (more smooth than the first one I ran back in November). This was a direct result of a little more experience coupled with a strong team approach to getting the event going. Thanks to the many people who helped including our board members as well parents. We had great food in the snack shack and we were only off schedule by a few minutes at most.
Notably, the championship games were awesome across all divisions. We saw great competition from participants who were eager to work as a team and win!
Elko was the victor for both 8U and 14U.
Bishop took the High School division.
Sierra Inline brought 11U home for Carson!
We are currently working to evaluate the feasability of an April 8-9th, 2017 tournament. More information to follow on that soon!
