Christmas tournament season starts this weekend

The tournament season is upon us and there will be some excellent minor hockey to watch around the Valley during the holidays. All teams appreciate a good crowd watching and there will be great draws on all sorts of gift baskets and items.

Our peewee Tier 2 team is hosting their tourney at Fuller Lake Dec. 20-22.

The atom C2 and C3 teams are hosting their tourney at Fuller Lake Dec. 27 and 28.

Next up are our peewee C3 and C4 Dec. 29 and 30 at Fuller Lake.

The CVMHA is hosting a "Pay it Forward for Alzheimer’s" bantam C tournament, Jan. 2 and 3 also at Fuller lake Arena. Teams will also be filling up food hampers to replenish local food banks as a team competition, so bring along nonperishable food items to help fill the baskets if you are coming out to watch a game.

We are expecting a great turnout for this worthy cause.

The final BIG EVENT is our midget Tier 1 tournament on Jan. 2-4 at the Island Savings Centre.

Our team will play the featured game, before the junior A Cowichan Valley Capitals take to the ice Jan. 3.

There will be some great hockey action with guest teams from North Shore Winter Club, Shawnigan Academy and the Pacific Coast Academy in Victoria.

All our team tournament schedules are available on our website at www.cowichanvalleymha.com

Many of our other teams are travelling to tournaments over the holidays, including our peewee Tier 1 team; they’re off to Chilliwack. The novice D team is going to Victoria for a tourney prior to Christmas, and the bantam C3 Phantoms are in Parksville for a New Year’s tournament. The midget C1 team is playing in the Nick Collins Memorial Tournament at Kerry Park during the Christmas break, and the midget C4 team is in Nanaimo for a New Year’s tourney.

Our Bantam Tier 1 team won silver in Vernon this past weekend where they represented CVMHA very well.

We’re very proud of our teams that are helping out with the Salvation Army Kettle Drive this year, a great big thank-you to all who are participating.

Check out the CVMHA website for all minor hockey action, and good luck to all of our teams. Have a safe and happy holiday season.

Christine Steeves CVMHA president
