4th Annual Tournament of Champions

Image

For many years here at Canadian Hockey Enterprises we’ve run a small tournament, maybe 12 teams, that ran in November each year in Las Vegas.  We’d always had a fall event in Montreal, but decided in the early 2000’s to offer something in Las Vegas to give our western teams an option for tournaments in the fall, at least an option with cheaper flights.  Then 5 year’s ago, with tournament enrolment hitting a record low with just 4 teams teams, we decided the November Las Vegas tournament needed a makeover, and the Tournament of Champions (TOC) was born.

Image

The premise is simple; create an event where each division is made of of teams who either won or placed 2nd within that same division at a different tournament the previous spring.  As if people need an extra incentive to head to Vegas, we decided to give a discount to all teams that make it into the finals during our spring tournaments.  Teams that win their division receive a $500 discount and teams that finish 2nd in their division receive a $250 discount.  So in the spring of 2010 we began handing out our TOC letters to championship teams at all of our spring tournaments, and the “Let’s go to Vegas” banter began almost immediately.

Image

It was pretty obvious right away that our teams loved the idea.  Come November 2010 and the tournament that had just 4 teams the previous year had 24 teams ready to compete for the championship trophy.  The it grew to 28 teams.  Then 32 teams.  And as of tomorrow morning, our 4th Annual Tournament of Champions will have 39 men’s & women’s teams competing for their shot to hoist the Champions Cup.

Image

This year we have teams coming from all over North America and you can keep up with scores and results through our website.  Here’s a list of the teams attending.

NEW @ CHE!

As the hockey camp season comes to a close it’s always an exciting time at CHE as we transition into our Youth and Adult Tournament season.  Even though most of the events don’t start until mid-November, this is the time of year when we get to play around with ideas, talk about new locations, possible new features and generally figure out something we and the hockey community can get excited about.  We’ve already committed to a few new ideas, so take a look and let us know what you think.

QUEBEC CITY!

Image

For a number of years we ran a youth tournament in Quebec City that at one point was as big as 40 teams.  After a couple of quiet years we took the location off of the roster, but after much demand we’re heading back to Quebec City January 10 – 12, just to make sure participants get to enjoy and experience the frigid cold of a Quebec City winter.  I can assure you, it’s freaking cold.  Cold as in the thermometer reads the same temperature in Celsius and Fahrenheit, watch your breath freeze and fall to the ground cold.  So knowing how cold it’s going to be, participants better bring all of their winter gear so they can make the most of their trip to this unique and amazing city.  Quebec City is like visiting Europe without the expense or the jet lag.  400 year architecture combined with the French Canadian culture, the worlds largest winter recreation park, great hotels and arena, this tournament will certainly be the highlight of your teams year.  Just make sure to bring your mitts.

Banff in the Fall!

Image

We’ve decided to expand our Fall Adult Tournament line-up of Montreal and Las Vegas and added the November 22 – 24 weekend in Banff.  Why not start your rec season off with a bang by heading to Banff at the beginning of ski season.  While the rest of the country goes to work, heads to the rink for their hour long game, then home and repeat, you and the guys can head to Banff, eat delicious Keg dinners (and caesars), play a few hockey games at the beautifully re-designed Banff Arena and maybe get in some early season skiing/riding.  The town will be a buzz as alpine enthusiasts from around the world come to warm up on these world class slopes.

Pond Hockey in Jasper!

Image

Hockey is an amazing game in it’s own right, but there’s a special feeling you get when you take it back to its roots and play on a frozen lake on a crisp winters day.  Since the first outdoor NHL game was played in Edmonton in 2003 there’s been a massive revival in pond hockey as players want to leave their equipment at home, grab their skates, stick and toque and play a super fun game.  Suddenly search for a puck in a snow bank is the coolest thing you can do on the weekend.  This February 7 – 9 we’ll be hosting an event in beautiful Jasper, AB, surrounded by glacier capped mountains, teams might have to toe drag a moose to win this amazing event.

There’s a number of ideas still on the table, but we’re pleased to announce these new events and hope to see you in one of these amazing locations.
