Hockey will take to the streets in Kelowna May 14 & 15 and June 11 & 12 Burnaby as they join 16 other cities across Canada for this national event. Players of all skill levels and ages are invited to sign up online and register their teams.

With Canada becoming more culturally diverse, sport preferences changing, and with only approximately 3% of Canadians now actually playing ice hockey, it has been estimated that there are at least three times as many people in Canada who have played street hockey as who have played ice hockey.

Kelowna’s event will be at Prospera Place and Metropolis at Metrotown will host Burnaby’s. Partners for these two cities are the BC Ball Hockey Association, and the BC Floorball Association. Proceeds from these tournaments will also support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
