We’ve got the sticks; you bring the energy! Each team of five players will have the opportunity to participate in this fun tournament to help sweep away cancer.

Sign-up today to honor a cancer survivor, remember loved ones or support someone currently battling cancer. The event will be capped at 12 teams, turn in your forms early to the ice arena to be part of this great event. Registration form and entry fee needed to register your team.

The cost is just $35 to play ($175 for a team of five), which includes two games, a pizza buffet, and a free skate and lighting of the luminary ceremony to close the event.
