Hockey for Good is a one day, round robin style street hockey tournament hosted by The Salvation Army Caring Place in Maple Ridge, BC.

All of the proceeds from Hockey for Good are being used to send at-risk youth and teens from Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows to Camp Sunrise in Gibsons, BC.

Camp Sunrise is a Salvation Army Camp dedicated to giving children the ultimate summer camp experience. The benefits to the children are paramount – the sense of belonging, camaraderie with their peers and ability to just be a kid is so important. Best of all, each child receives a full backpack with all of the school supplies they need for the upcoming school year when they arrive home.

“Our goal this year is to send 50 to 60 kids to camp. For some of these kids, this opportunity is the only one they have to experience something where they can just be kids and have fun, “ says Darrell Pilgrim, the director of The Caring Place. “It’s shaping up to be a great day. Teams are signing up and the support from the community in terms of sponsorship has been really great.”

Event details:

– The tournament is open to participants aged 8 and over, including an adult coed division
– Each team is guaranteed two games, plus any playoff games
– Each game is 20 min run time with 2 periods
– Ball hockey refs
– Kids fun zone with bouncy castle and activities
