ABOUT the TOURNAMENT
The Grindstone Award Foundation offers participants to enjoy a three day event aimed to raise funds for female hockey players in need. This fun tournament is open to any women who want to play: any age and ability.
You will register as an INDIVIDUAL but can request friends (up to 4) to play with on the same team. At registration you will let us know your ability level. From here we will try our best to make equal teams.
Last year was our inaugural year and it was a groundbreaking event that raised enough to provide grants to 10 female hockey players across Canada. This year, our goal is to make our event bigger and better to raise enough to provide 30 grants. We hope that you will join us by supporting this movement. Be a part of something bigger, something that will have a lasting impact.
Your support means you will have an impact on the lives of young female hockey players through fulfilling our mission to support and address the needs of female players who have the desire to play, but are unable to for financial reasons.
Not only that but on the same weekend, the Grindstone team is again offering Grindstone’s Girls Rock the Rink – which is a free event for female hockey players under 18. If you have a daughter that wants to try hockey – this is her chance.
All proceeds from the event will go towards the Grindstone goal.
Meet your teammates at your first game on Friday night. Enjoy a free jug of beer and nachos in Boomers after.
