Pabst Pond Hockey Tournament - Divisions

FIRST, WE'D LIKE YOU TO KNOW SOMETHING...

 

It is with great pride and a deep respect for our humble beginning that we continue to produce the largest pond hockey tournament west of the Mississippi. Our goal however, is never to be the 'largest' tournament in the world. Our goal is to be the BEST pond hockey tournament in the world. By limiting the amount of teams each year, we are able to focus more on the players, actually getting to know many of you individually, and it enables us to deliver more benefits and an overall more premium experience to each of the teams.

In every step of the planning process, YOU, the players, are on our minds. We will continue to work our asses off, pull all-nighters, all-dayers, chug coffee and drink Monster Energy to bring you the best and most unique pond hockey tournament experience you and your team will ever have. Then we'll celebrate with an ice cold Pabst... and do it all again. The point is, rest assured you're in for the 'Best Damn Pond Hockey Tournament' you'll ever find. See you in the Rockies!
