Thursday Night Meet-N-Greet!

Labatt Blue and St. Ignace Hockey invite your and your teammates and families to enjoy your experience at this year’s 3-on-3 pond hockey championships.  This year’s tournament is a little different from past years.  Due to lack of outdoor ice we will be playing all games indoors at the Little Bear Ice Arena, 275 Marquette Street.  Regular games will be played Friday & Saturday, with Championship Games on Sunday as usual.  We aim for a quality hockey and social experience.  With the cooperation of all players, coaches and team officials, we are confident that everyone will have a great time at our tournament. As this is a USA Hockey sanctioned event every player must have a USA Hockey ID.

The St. Ignace Youth Hockey Association will again be providing concessions in the tent outside of Little Bear, so stop in and grab a burger, hot dog, pulled pork, or soup, and a beer, and go inside to watch some exciting hockey!

2024 marks the 17th year of our tournament that began back in 2007 (we had to cancel in 2021 due to Covid).  For our first year 24 teams participated, doubling each of the next two years, and we now have an average of 150 teams participating each year.  Teams come from as far away as Florida and Texas!

Teams are guaranteed to play 3 games over Friday & Saturday, with Championship games on Sunday.
