When hockey season hits it can feel like it’s already over before you blink. With school starting at about the same time, schedules get very busy, very quickly and the balance can become tricky. Use the time you have in the summer to plan out as much as you can of the hockey year ahead. Get ahead of the game for your team and your scheduling to keep things as smooth as possible.
Tournaments offer many benefits for your team. Whether is a nearby town or on the road, the time spent as a group is great for bonding and becoming a closer team. Look at the tournament schedule once you register and take advantage of the time for off-ice team activities that can be a fun break in between games. The few days spent on the road can turn out to be the most memorable of the season.
A lot of tournaments offer an early-bird discount if you register by a certain date. Get the booking out of the way now and don’t worry about trying to fit into your schedule later. The OMHA offers tournament listings for teams of all levels and ages. Find a tournament that fits best for your team and calendar.
