Event Description

Don’t miss out on one of the most memorable hockey weekends of the year! This isn’t just your average hockey tournament. Registration fills up every year, so sign up now as an individual, bring your friends, meet new ones, and support our movement to help grow female hockey in Canada. The Grindstone Award Foundation is a registered charity that offers participants a three-day hockey event to raise funds for female hockey players in need. 2017 was our inaugural year and it was a groundbreaking event that raised enough to provide grants to 10 female hockey players across Canada; 2018 was an even bigger year, and we provided 30 grants to female hockey players facing financial barriers. This year, our goal is to make our event bigger and better in order to raise enough to provide 50 GRANTS. This fun tournament is open to any women who want to play. Never played before and want to give hockey a try? Play It Again Sports - Kelowna, BC will suit you up with gear and everything! You register as an INDIVIDUAL but can request up to 4 friends to play with on the same team. At registration you will let us know your ability level. From here we will try our best to make equal teams. What does the weekend include? ~ 3 Day Tournament, 4 Games ~ Individual Sign up (with friend requests) ~ Never played?
