An­nual Mike Sch­mitt tour­na­ment Dec. 27-30

Truro Daily News - - SPORTS -

The Truro and Area Mi­nor Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion is gear­ing up for its an­nual holiday Christ­mas tour­na­ment.

The Mike Sch­mitt Me­mo­rial tour­na­ment will be held Dec. 27 to 30 at the Colch­ester Le­gion Sta­dium and Rath East­link Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

“It’s great for the com­mu­nity,” said An­drew St. Coeur, pres­i­dent of the TAMHA and host com­mit­tee mem­ber. “There’s ho­tels that are ob­vi­ously im­pacted and lo­cal busi­nesses, so I think it’s good for the lo­cal econ­omy for sure.

“It’s nice too for us to host the tour­na­ment over the hol­i­days; it’s great be­cause it means our teams aren’t trav­el­ling close to the hol­i­days, so that’s def­i­nitely a pos­i­tive for us for sure.”

The rep tour­na­ment will fea­ture six di­vi­sions – atom A and AA, pee­wee A and AAA and ban­tam A and AA.

“We will see fairly high-level hockey,” said St. Coeur.

A cer­e­mo­nial puck drop, which will in­clude mem­bers of Mike Sch­mitt’s fam­ily, will take place on Dec. 27 at the sta­dium at 1 p.m. On Dec. 29, a We Care About Can­cer Fund spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion will take place at the sta­dium at 2:45 p.m.

The Truro ban­tam A and AA squads are host teams for the tour­na­ment and will be in charge of look­ing af­ter the hospi­tal­ity room at the sta­dium and dress­ing room clean-up be­tween games. They will also host a silent auc­tion fundraiser. Ad­mis­sion to all games is free, how­ever, the host com­mit­tee en­cour­ages fans to pur­chase 50-50 tick­ets and bid on silent auc­tion items.

In Brook­field, the South Colch­ester Mi­nor Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion will host its an­nual Phil Sears Me­mo­rial Friend­ship Tour­na­ment Dec. 27 and 28 at the Don Hen­der­son Me­mo­rial Sport­splex.
