Adult Pond Hockey Tournament - Jan-2013
 
http://classicpondhockey.com/assets/Leinenkugel-sm3.jpgWe'd like to invite you to a great Pond Hockey tournament Jan. 11-13 2013 in central Wisconsin.

For more info you can go to our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/LeinenkugelsClassicPondHockey and share with your members, or our website at http://classicpondhockey.com/


Last year was the inaugural year of the Leinenkugel’s Classic adult pond hockey tournament. It was a very successful tournament with 14 teams in 3 divisions. This year we are off to an earlier start and already have teams registered from as far away as Illinois. We are planning on having teams in the event from Illinois, Michigan, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.

The 2nd annual Midwest Freeze Leinenkugel’s Classic adult pond hockey tournament will be played on Sunny Vale Lake at Sunnyvale Park in Wausau, WI on January 11-13, 2013. 4 on 4 pond hockey played on a lake in the great outdoors. The tournament will be played over three days. With 12 divisions, including a co-ed division, we are anticipating 680 participants from the Midwest. With 680 participants on 96 teams we plan on well over 2,000 participants, friends, family, and spectators. The tournament will be run entirely by volunteers and all proceeds going to the local hockey community.

Over the past 2 years the alliance between the following organizations have been developing plans for the tournament and to market the tournament, along with the communities involved and their businesses, to showcase the Wausau area as a destination for hockey and much, much more.



Wausau Warjacks Youth Hockey

Midwest Freeze

Marathon County Parks Department

Ohio will be represented! what division would you suggest for guys who played travel and high school and some college but may have some lady college players as well?

Leinenkugels 10-28-2012 10:37 AM

I'd say Silver, if you feel your really solid then Gold, Gold last year was very competitive, but if you played College Gold should be your pace

Leinenkugels 10-28-2012 10:37 AM

Not many teams register Gold, so you may have a better shot at winning Gold, Silver will be a solid Div

I'm not a religious person, but I do believe the hockey gods will frown on you working..

Thanks for sharing

BUMP for awareness.. and will you guys be cutting off registration at a specific number of teams or not so much?

Leinenkugels 11-01-2012 11:03 AM

96 teams is the goal

Leinenkugels 11-01-2012 11:05 AM

So if we approach that range we'll start finaling divisions
