3-on-3 hockey tourney coming to 100 Mile House

Canlan Ice Sports hosts annual 'Christmas Madness Tournament'

Come Dec. 27-28, there will be all kinds of room to skate and move the puck on the ice at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre in 100 Mile House.

Canlan Ice Sports is hosting its annual 3-on-3 Christmas Madness Tournament.

The event usually sees about four or six teams, says Laura Albert, Canlan programs co-ordinator.

“A lot of the boys will come home at Christmas and haven’t seen each other for a while. It’s to get them together to have some hockey games.”

The 3-on-3 format presents a different sort of challenge, as well, she adds.

“It’s a high tempo, intense game that improves speed, endurance and acceleration more than a regular 5-on-5.”

There will be a refreshment garden.

The registration deadline is Dec. 18. Cost is $575 to enter a team of 10, which includes a goalie.
