Memorial Sports Center sets benefit tournament

MIDDLEBURY — Memorial Sports Center backers are looking for hockey teams to play in the rink’s second annual “Heat It Up Tournament.” That Oct. 7 benefit event that will help fund the final phase of the Middlebury facility’s expansion project, started in 2007.
They are describing the tournament as “cross-ice indoor pond hockey,” featuring three-on-three play for teams of five that can sub on the fly. Teams, broken into two divisions based on self-determined skill level, will shoot on wooden slot goals during 30-minute games that will start at 9 a.m. on that Sunday and run throughout the day.
A round-robin format will guarantee teams three games. Play will emphasize minimal contact, and honor-system, self-called penalties will result in a change of puck possession. Games will have monitors who will tally scores and settle any disputes.
The puck must be kept below knee height, and minimum required equipment will be helmets, gloves, shin pads and elbow pads, as well as sticks and skates. Teams should bring both light and dark jerseys.
The cost will be $175 per team of five, and advanced registration is appreciated. Organizers said team sign-ups are preferred, but they will try to help those who wish to participate and need a team. Those who are interested or have questions may contact Tim Hodson at [email protected].
