Several of our locations are nearing capacity so we encourage anyone who is interested in putting in a team to do so as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

The main focus of our tournaments is obviously hockey but it’s also our great locations that make each weekend a special getaway for your team and guests.

To ensure you get an amazing experience, our tournaments are always hosted in world renowned destinations that will keep everyone entertained, on and off the ice, for the weekend.

Las Vegas  

With the current success of the Golden Knights in their inaugural NHL season, Las Vegas has been a hot spot for us, with several teams electing to go there this year to be a part of what has become a hockey crazed city …while of course still maintaining its main moniker, Sin City. It’s always a great time in Vegas!

Also, on the west coast, we’ve got stops just above Vegas in beautiful British Columbia where we’ll be hosting tournaments in Vancouver, Whistler and Kelowna; which lies in the heart of the amazing Okanagan Valley; a must see for anyone who appreciates incredible scenery.

Pond Hockey Classic

As winter weather finally takes hold over most of the country, it’s easy to imagine living under a blanket for the duration of the season, but what makes Canadians so resilient is our ability to overcome and take advantage of our surroundings.  And is there anything more Canadian than grabbing a shovel, skates, sticks and nets, bundling up in all our gear and playing a relaxed game of hockey on a frozen pond or lake?  We don’t think so, which is why we’ve set up 2 different Pond Hockey Tournaments in world class destinations this February 6 – 8, 2015.

2014-02-23+CHE+Mont+Tremblant--3090909445-O

Right in the heart of the Laurentians, Mont-Tremblant is just 1.5 hour drive from both Ottawa and Montreal and is eastern Canada’s premier ski resort with world class mountain, hotels and apres ski.   This picturesque village is also surrounded my a number of lakes, and the typically frigid temperatures make it an ideal situation for a pond hockey event.  Teams of 4 – 6 players will head to Tremblant for a taste of French Canadian culture, ice cold beverages and a truly Canadian experience as they battle it out on beautiful Lac Mercier, just 5 minutes from the main village.  There’s still space available and team cal CLICK HERE for details and to register.

For teams on the western side of the continent, we’ve substituted the Laurentians for the Rockies, Lac Mercier for Lake Mildred, and the mountain town of Mont-Trembant for the winter wonderland in Jasper, AB.  Surrounded by glacier covered peaks rising over 10000 feet into the sky, it feels like a scene from a Molson Canadian commercial.  Teams can choose to just play in the tournament February 6 – 8, but most teams will take the all inclusive package and spend the weekend at the historical Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge where they can warm their feet and relax with a cold beverage after battling it out against teams from all over western Canada and US.  Space is tight, but there’s still room for teams to join and you can CLICK HERE for more details.

As Canadians, it’s our duty to show mother nature who’s boss during these precarious and frigid winter months, and what better way to do so than grabbing a few friends and heading to one of these pristine destinations for what could be the ultimate in Canadian traditions.

Current temp is -20 and powder snow covers the mountains. This could be you in February when you participate in our 1st Annual Pond Hockey Challenge here in Jasper that runs from February 7-9, 2014.

All you need is 6 players, skates, helmet, shin-pads, stick and gloves and you are set to dangle around on the 4 beautiful ice surfaces that this tournament will be using.

On Saturday Night CHE will be throwing a Meet and Greet Party starting just after 7 PM, where appetizers, beverages and lots of laughs and stories from the day’s events will be held inside the Jasper Park lodge.

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.
