2018 Jefferson City Friendship Games

Winterland Ice Hockey, Inc., in cooperation with the Mid- Missouri Tigers Youth Ice Hockey Club, the Jefferson City Parks Department and the Jefferson City Convention & Visitors Bureau, will be organizing the Mid-Missouri Tigers Jefferson City Friendship Games in June and July of 2018 for children in the Mite(U8), Squirt(U10), Peewee(U12), Bantam(U14), and Midget/High School(U18) age groups.

This joint program is a strong effort to help develop youth hockey in the Jefferson City area and at the same time develop community involvement.  These summer youth ice hockey programs will help to stabilize the capabilities of operating the Washington Park Ice Rink year round.

The goal is to have each age group have the chance to play games over a weekend against teams from around St. Louis, Jefferson City, Springfield, Kansas City, and Arkansas.

June 8-9-10, 2018         Mites(U8)

June 15-16-17, 2018     Squirts(U10) & Peewees (U12)

July 27-29                       Bantam(U14) & High School/Midget(U16)

These events are held strictly for teams in the House, B, A2 levels.  Midget/High School will be JV levels.

We want to stress that these programs are not tournaments but games for fun and to meet new kids from other areas of the mid-west.  There is no first place and you only pay for the games you want to play.  So if you want to come in and stay the weekend and play 4 to 5 games that will be possible.  If you only want to come and play two games that will also be possible.

Cost per game:

Mites: $100 per hour(2 games per hour)
Squirt-Peewee-Bantam $200 per game
Midget/JV  $225 per Game

USA Hockey rules apply and the Missouri Ice Hockey Officials Association will be supplying the on ice officials.

Officials from other cities are welcome to participate.  There is a link below to find out how a Referee/Linesman can get involved.

All teams must supply a USA Hockey certified roster to the organizing committee at least 2 weeks before the event.
