Winterland Ice Hockey, Inc., in cooperation with the Jefferson City Parks Department, Mid- Missouri Tigers Youth Ice Hockey Club, and the Jefferson City Convention & Visitors Bureau, will be organizing the Jefferson City Friendship Games in June and July of 2020 for children in the Mite(U8), Squirt(U10), Peewee(U12), and Bantam(U14) 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 12-14 Mites(U8), Squirts(U10) & Peewees (U12)
July 24-26 Bantam(U14) and Adults
These events are held strictly for teams in the House, B, A2 levels for kids and Novice for Adults.
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 three games that will also be possible.
Team cost per game: (minimum of 3 games)
Mites: $100 per hour(3 games per hour-18 minutes each)
Squirt-Peewee: $200 per game
Bantams: $225 per game
Adults are Novice Teams only - For information contact Kevin Whitworth - email@example.com
