Teams needed for PlayOn!
It has been a tough go so far for organizers of Hockey Night in Canada’s Play On! Kelowna.
After a stellar turnout at last year’s street hockey tournament, they say only a dozen or so teams have signed up for the 2014 event.
The tournament will take place the weekend of May 24 at the same location – outside of Prospera Place.
Project Manager Lauren Foss hopes to see 100 teams sign up by the beginning of May, and teams registering before May 2 will go into a draw for a signed Canucks hat, along with other prizes.
Each player in the event receives a commemorative Hockey Night in Canada's Play On! t-shirt and an assortment of items from both national and local sponsors.
Top teams will go on to play in the national championship and last year's winning team on the men’s side walked away with $40,000 cash.
More information can be found on the PlayOn! website.
