The Christmas season may be about family, friends and turkey, but it’s also about hockey tournaments. And there’s no shortage of minor hockey action at local rinks across the Tri-Cities in the next couple of weeks.
Coquitlam Minor Hockey Association (CMHA) has a full plate of tournaments, starting with its Candy Cane tournament for Initiation and novice players that begins today and wraps up Sunday.
On Dec. 27 to 30, CMHA hosts its annual Atom C Winter Classic tournament.
Then, after New Year’s, it’s the bigger kids’ turn, with the Midget A New Year’s Challenge scheduled for Jan. 2 to 4 and the Bantam C Winter Classic running from Jan. 3 to 5.
Port Coquitlam Minor Hockey hosts its 33rd annual Winter Classic tournament for Atom and Pee Wee C players from Dec. 27 to 31, at the city’s new community centre.
In Port Moody, Atom-aged players in Tiers 2, 3 and 4 will play in the annual Holiday Classic tournament at the rec centre from Dec. 27 to 30.
