Ball hockey tournament all about fun in Fort St No matter what time of year, yell the word hockey and most Canadians won't be too far behind.
That was the case Saturday at the second annual Fort St. John Minor Hockey Ball Hockey Tournament held in the Pomeroy Sports Centre. The turnout was huge this time around, about 100 kids on 26 different teams in four age groups. They played 52 games over the course of the day Saturday. Winning wasn't the main agenda of course, according to co organizer Hal Holden, who said the day was bigger and better than anyone could have imagined. "We're seeing some awesome hockey here, and the kids are really excited," Holden said Saturday. "Last year it was really, really small and this year it blew up."

Teams came from all across the region to compete, even as far as Altona just for a day of ball hockey. That spoke to the atmosphere of fun that Holden and the rest of the organizers hoped to create for the players who attended. "What we're seeing is a lot of fun," he said. "We're trying to make it fun as much as possible. By emphasizing fun, the kids aren't complaining 'Oh, we lost' they are saying 'We had a lot of fun'." And with fun being the mantra for the day, Holden said that's how the coach outlet atlanta yellow idea came together to start a ball hockey coach sneakers outlet store online tournament in the first place.

" We have kids playing ball that do not play ice hockey. It's fun to watch and fun to see.".
