GRIT (December 26-31, 2019) is a holiday tournament with increasing popularity, attracting both local and out-of-town teams . Players participate in a team-friendly, well-run event and compete in a state-of-the-art facility!
Teams are guaranteed 4 games.
The event is held just north of Pittsburgh in Cranberry Township at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex, practice home of the Pittsburgh Penguins!
Games will begin after 12pm Dec 26 and will end no later than 7:30pm Dec 31.
Squirt – 10U – Divisions (AA, A Major, A Minor) and Pee Wee – 12U – (A Major & A Minor) play games December 26-29.
Pee Wee AA -12U – and all Bantam – 14U – Divisions (AA, A Major, A Minor) play games December 27-31.
Note: Major and Minor in the Pittsburgh area within 10U/12U/14U refers primarily to skill level and is not used to designate single birth year teams. Most Major and Minor teams are comprised of players within both of the 2 birth years designated by USA Hockey for 10U/12U/14U.
It is likely that a Major team will have a greater number of second year players in a particular age division than first year players, just based on being older and generally bigger, with more experience, and vice-versa.
Tournament Fee is $1450.00 (Register by September 30 and get the ‘Early Bird’ Discount price of $1300).
