Pond hockey enthusiasts grew up playing hockey on frozen ponds in their back yards, on a neighborhood creek or in a local park. It was hockey the way nature intended –– outside in the elements during the absolute coldest time of year.
In 2006, the first-ever U.S. Pond Hockey Championships drew nearly 120 teams of pond hockey players from across the nation to Minneapolis to play on 25 rinks. Tens of thousands of spectators cheered them on. And, the tournament proudly donated a portion of its profits to youth hockey charities, The Herb Brooks Foundation and DinoMights.
The 2018 U.S. Pond Hockey Championships will be held at Lake Nokomis Park January 25-28th.
Tradition Companies is a proud sponsor of the 2018 U.S. Pond Hockey Tournament.
