The 2012 Capitals Cup Challenge Tournament Schedule has been posted and can be found on the “Tournament Schedule Tab”.
There you will also find the address to our Arena’s in Leamington and Wheatley.
The Rules and Information has also been posted under the “Tournament Schedule Tab”.
Please visit our “Wishes Granted” tab to see updated information on the three wish children that have had their wishes granted over the past two years.
One thing that makes this tournament unique compared to most others is our fundraising aspect with The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southwestern Ontario (which is completely optional). Not only can kids play hockey with their friends, score goals and possibly win their division, they could leave with some really cool prizes all by helping raise money for kids and their families in a time of need.
All you have to do is raise a minimum of $25 dollars and you will receive a ballot for our draw to win one of the prizes listed below. So for example, if you raise $200, you get 8 ballots entered to win. The more you raise, the better your chances are of winning.
The prizes are not finalized but here is what we have to date.
1) Beats Headphones
2) Blackberry Playbook
3) Apple IPad 2
4) Samsung 7″ Galaxy Tablet
5) Samsung 10″ Galaxy Tablet
6) Google Nexus 7 Tablet
7) Acer 10.1″ Iconia Tablet
8) Apple Ipod Touch 4th Generation
9) 32″ LCD TV
10) 22″ LCD TV
Additional prizes will be listed at a later date.
We understand that not every team will be interested in fundraising for this tournament but for those kids who are, we think you should be rewarded for your efforts. Please note that not every skater needs to participate on your team. If the fundraising portion of this tournament is mentioned to everyone and only two kids decide to participate, we welcome them to do so.
Last year we had a Peewee team hold a bottle drive in their local town. All the kids and parents participated in the event. Many parents told us that will be something they never forget. Their kids came together with the support of their community and helped raise over $900 in bottle returns. The kids had the time of their lives and they were very proud of their accomplishments. We challenge you and your team to come up with a unique way of getting everyone on your team to participate. Please feel free to share your success stories with us during the tournament.
Looking forward to seeing you there in November.
