Canada’s Largest Ball Hockey Tournament is coming to Calgary July 30 – 31, 2022! It’s time to get out and play again and it’s only $49 to play for the weekend!

We’ve all relied heavily on our resilience and perseverance to get us through tough times. To recover from these challenges and truly heal, we need to rebuild connection by immersing ourselves and our youth in the joy of play, sharing in the creation of positive new memories. Play builds human connection when we collaborate, laugh and celebrate together. The bonds and skills forged through play can last a lifetime. It’s time to shift focus from surviving, to thriving, and Play On!

Historically rooted in the Indigenous culture of the Mi’kmaq First Nation, hockey went on to become Canada’s national winter sport. Now, it’s time to take the game off the ice and into the summer sunshine for Play On!, Canada’s street hockey tournament.

The tournament includes a series of street festivals in 9 cities across the country. It’s open to all ages and experience levels and no skating skills are required – just grab your sneakers and a stick and you’re ready to play.

If you’re in it to win it, we’re thrilled to announce that for the first time ever, Play On! winners and finalists will qualify for the new National Championships to be held in the fall of 2023.

Whether you’re a returning street hockey champion or a curious newbie who wants to try it for the first time, there are division options for everyone. The tournament is for players of all ages and skill levels so you can register yourself, your child or your teen to participate. There are also lots of ways to get involved if you don’t want to play but still want to be a part of the event.

You can register to be a player, team captain or referee, show your support by lending a hand as a volunteer or just dig out your pom poms and rally sticks to cheer on your favourite team as a spectator.
