There is an astronomical amount of people who love hockey in this area, but rarely — if ever — play the sport. I want to continue to help change that.
On Saturday, October 20, RMNB is renting out the Rockville Sportplex to hold our third annual ball hockey tournament and we’d love if you participated. In conjunction with DCHL Leagues, we’re hosting 88 players in two co-ed mini-tourneys where teams are formed by your level of play: recreational and advanced. The winning teams will get to hoist the dumbest championship trophy in all of sport: the GR8 Missing Tooth.
Last year’s event sold out. The event before that one sold out. And after a soft launch, this year’s tournament is already half full.
Here’s all the information.
We are proud to announce that the 2018 version will occur Saturday, October 20th from 4-9 pm at the Rockville Sportsplex!
FORMAT: Two divisions (REC and PRO)
REC Division: 4 pm – 6:30 pm
PRO Division: 6:30 pm – 9 pm
Cost to play – $20!
EQUIPMENT: Any stick and SHIN GUARDS are required for new players. Gloves and helmets are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED though NOT required.
NOTE 1: SPECIAL discount price of $15 to all NEW players (new to our leagues or to this tourney)
NOTE 2: RMNB will have a special gift for all those who register to play!
NOTE 3: For the first time ever, we plan to stream an entire tourney LIVE on the DCHL Facebook page. Yes, so you can catch every single minute of this tourney on this very page!
Because this is an RMNB tourney, we will take only 88 PLAYERS! That’s right – 88 only! I wonder why the number 8 but I cannot just put my finger on it.
This means we will take 8 teams (4 per division) of 11 players (10 players which is 2 lines and a goalie). This adds up to 88 players. Each team must have at least TWO women on the roster (at least one woman on the floor rule).
If you want to play, please email email@example.com. Ian is available for questions in the comments of this post.
We anticipate that we will book up quickly — both previous years sold out — so make sure you are among the 88 who get in!
I really hope to see you there.
