Mid-Michigan HS Hockey Alumni Tournament This Weekend

The tournament will feature 36 teams representing 18 schools from Lapeer and Genesee Counties. Teams are comprised of players in three age brackets: 18 and over, 30 and over and 40 and over. Over 350 former high school hockey players, some former all-conference and all-state players and some traveling to play in the tournament from across the country, will be playing for the pride of their alma maters in an intense yet entertaining competition with an endearing homecoming atmosphere according to the High School Hockey Alumni.

Proceeds from the team entry fees also contribute to the Michigan Youth Hockey Scholarship fund which funds youth hockey associations in both Genesee and Lapeer Counties.The tournament has raised well over $20,000 for the its charities and was also a key sponsor of the 2018 Flint Inner City Youth Hockey Program which gave children residing within the City of Flint an opportunity to learn the sport for free.
