Please reserve August 1, 2015 for our next tournament! This is a tentative date, as we are working with the Pittsburgh Indoor Sports Arena to secure our spot for next year.
Below is a copy of the game schedule for HKC’s first round of games.
Like last year, we are running a double elimination tournament, running 2 games at a time.
Please plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to your team’s first game to allow time to check-in and turn in your donation basket/auction items. Team captains, please pass these times along to your teammates.
If you have questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
The facility address is:
Pittsburgh Indoor Sports Arena
22 Rich Hill Rd, Cheswick, PA 15024
One of the keys to making Hockey Kicks Cancer a huge success is auction items and prize basket donations.
We already have a wonderful set of prizes on deck from the Pittsburgh Riverhounds, Mario Lemieux Foundation, and local beer distributors and spas, but we need your help!
We are accepting donations for baskets with the following themes:
Family Game Night
Adult Game Night
Lottery Ticket Tree
Kids Summer Basket
Giftcards to Amazon, iTunes, Google Play
Please let us know ASAP if you are interested in making a basket this year. Email email@example.com. All baskets will be picked up after July 20th.
Thank you everyone for your help each year! We couldn’t do this without your generosity and support!
This year we will be accepting 12 teams to participate in Hockey Kicks Cancer on July 26, 2014.
The Pittsburgh Indoor Sports Arena accommodations will allow us to once again play two games at a time, splitting the larger, open field in two. The tournament will be double elimination.
Teams will be limited to a minimum of 10 players and a maximum of 13. The cost is $23 per player.
If you would like to host a team, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:

We will reach out to teams at a later date to choose team colors. Teams will choose colors in order of senority from previous years, with the previous year’s champion choosing first.
We ask that all teams donate either a prize basket or auction item to the event.
Registration will open on April 1st and run through June 30th. Additional entries will not be accepted after June 30th. No acceptions, as shirts will need to be ordered by that date. Spectators and additional players will be able to pay at the door, but will not be guaranteed to receive a shirt. Extra shirts will be in limited supply at the event.
A registration link will be made available on April 1st. Please follow us on Twitter @hkcancer14 and on Facebook for up to date information on the event.
A registration link will be emailed to all team captains on April 1st.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to another great event!

Underage drinking will not be allowed or tolerated. Drug use of any kind also will not be allowed. If these rules are violated, proper authorities will be notified.
If you will be drinking, please have a designated driver available. If you do not have one, one can be arranged for you.
This is a wonderful event for a great cause and we hope to see it continue to grow for years to come. Please, use your best judgement so that we may have a fun but safe time!
Thank you all and we will see you on Saturday!
