On Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the parking lot will be transformed into a street hockey stadium. Teams from the Greater Sudbury community will face off against their rivals in this four-on-four, street hockey tournament in support of children and youth with physical disabilities. Teams are encouraged to demonstrate their team spirit by wearing wacky team themed costumes.
Spectators and players will enjoy a day of hockey fun, great food, great prizes and good old-fashioned rivalries.
Opening ceremonies take place at 10:45 a.m. with City of Greater Sudbury councillor André Rivest and Easter Seals Sudbury District Council chair, Scott Nairn, set to participate in the official ball drop. Local Easter Seals Ambassadors, Cassandra Degn and Kyle Leblanc, will also be in attendance.
“The annual Power Play tournament is a great day for both spectators and players,” said Roxanne Kneer, Development Officer, Easter Seals Ontario. “Of course, the big winners of the day are Easter Seals kids.”
Easter Seals Ontario is now in its 90th year of helping children and youth with physical disabilities. Since 1922, Easter Seals Ontario has provided families of children with physical disabilities with financial assistance for expensive mobility equipment and communication devices such as wheelchairs, walkers and braces, as well as fully accessible Easter Seals camps, and funding for alternative recreational programs.
