UBCO to host street hockey classic

The inaugural Winter Classic Hockey for the Homeless outdoor street hockey tournament will take place Saturday at the UBC Okanagan campus.

The UBCO Management Student Association is organizing the event, led by the efforts of Jordan Dyck, Jon Baron, Karen Lemire, Caroline Evans and Liz Yeomans. The proceeds will benefit local homeless shelters.

UBCO’s version of the Winter Classic will consist of a 4-on-4 street hockey tournament, with each team consisting of a goalie along with a maximum of seven players, at last one of whom has to be female.

Some 20 teams have so far registered to participate.

Hot chocolate will be served by donations throughout the day. All proceeds raised through sales of hot chocolate as well as team registration will be donated to Hockey for the Homeless.
