Since 1987 the Hockey North America tournament program has entertained league members throughout Canada, the United States, and Western Europe with our unique brand of hockey vacations.
The goal of HNA tournaments is to combine fun locations with unique services & features, at a value price. From pulling an "all nighter" in Atlantic City, jumping from games to rides & back at Hersheypark, to donning the Team USA/ Team Canada uniform in Europe, you'll have a fun hockey vacation with your teammates and a very memorable experience.
Each tournament offers different services & features. For example, the annual Europe tournament in March is very heavy on personal service and geared towards individual registration - but a location like Atlantic City, where there is a non-stop cavalcade of entertainment choices, has fewer features.
The rules associated with tournaments are a little different than you might expect from HNA league play. You could play teams from other leagues, or other countries. Helmets are required, but facial protection is not. An experienced HNA staff member will always be at every game to make sure things run on time, as well as to take photographs and track stats.
Be sure to visit the area setup for each of the upcoming events for a complete explanation of the price, features and more specifics about the playing location.
What is a tournament? A tournament is a weekend competition the allows each visitor to combine playing hockey with a
few days away from home. The competition will typically begin during the day on Friday, During the weekend you'll play games against other visiting teams, with the objective (besides having fun) of advancing to the playoff round.
Whatever happens during the weekend, you'll have a fun time with your teammates; You'll get the chance to visit and enjoy a fun location - and you will be very tired by the end of the weekend.
