Hockey Night in Canada’s Play On! is Canada’s official street hockey tournament and largest sports festival in the country, and it’s coming back to Vancouver! Vancity Buzz is proud to be a media partner of the festival happening on Saturday, June 7 and Sunday, June 8 at Coquitlam Centre.
Perhaps you’ve never played ice hockey before. Perhaps you’re an aspiring NHL superstar. Perhaps you’re reminiscing of the good old days, back when the game was only about fun. It doesn’t matter your gender, age or skill level, Hockey Night in Canada’s Play On! is for you. The 4-on-4 street hockey tournaments offer both rec and competitive street hockey tournament divisions that anyone can play in.
Make a team
There are five conferences (with their own divisions) players/teams can register under:
- Tidbit Street: boys and girls ages 7 and under
- Team entry fee: $200 (5 players), additional players are $40 each
- Youth Street: ages 9 to 19
- Team entry fee: $250 (5 players), additional players are $50 each
- Adult Street: ages 19+
- Team entry fee: $300 (5 players), additional players are $60 each
- Elite: ages 19+, the highest level of street hockey competition (to play to compete in the national championships)
- Team entry fee: $350 (5 players), additional players are $70 each
- Corporate: profits from this conference are donated to local children’s charities
- Team entry fee: $750 (5 players), additional players are $10 each
Two additional players may be added to each team, for a maximum of seven players.
Without the support of some of the greatest people in the city who give their time, Play On! couldn’t be possible. They’re looking for volunteers to help make the event a success – register today as a volunteer.
They’re also looking for officials (paid) to make sure the games run smoothly and the participants are having fun and a fair in-game experience. You don’t need to be a certified ice or ball hockey official to referee, you just need to: be at least 16 years of age, have great communication skills, be able to exercise good judgement at all times and be able and willing to be on your feet for a long time. Apply now to be an official for the event.
