Waterford, Michigan -- Adult men and women hockey teams that want to save $50 have until Jan. 10, 2011, to register for the 2011 Oakland Edge Adult Hockey Tournament.
The tournament is set for April 15-17, 2011, at the beautiful Onyx Arena in Rochester. After Jan. 11, team registration is $750. Teams are guaranteed a minimum of three games. Male players must be at least 30 years old. Participants in the women’s division must be at least 21.
The top teams will play-off for trophies. Players on the winner and runner-up teams will receive awards. Each tournament participant gets a souvenir Oakland Edge t-shirt.
There are two new divisions this year: Men’s 50 and over and a co-ed Sled Hockey division for disabled athletes ages 15 and over. The Sled Division is sponsored by Wright & Filippis, the nation’s largest family-owned provider of home medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, respiratory services and medical supplies; and the Athletes with Disabilities Network.
Teams will play three 15-minute running time periods. Each team is limited to 18 players and all players must be registered with USA Hockey.
