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.

This year will be epic as we have Natalie Spooner coming to Kelowna for our Charity Weekend. You will get the chance to hear her speak at our banquet Saturday night AND watch her in the All Star Game. If you are lucky enough to be voted by your teammates to play with her in the All Star Game! Not only that, each player participating in the women’s charity tournament can attend Spoon Full of Dreams on Friday Night and hear Spooner speak for FREE. Link to event can be found HERE.

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 only our 2nd year and it was a groundbreaking event that raised enough to provide grants to 30 female hockey players across Canada. This year, our goal is to make our event bigger and better to raise enough to provide 50 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.
