"We are very excited with the number of quality teams hitting the ice for our inaugural event," Said tournament chair Tim Armstorng. "There are teams from every corner of the province and we even have a team from Marquette, Michigan entered at the Intermediate A level."
Overall, there are 30 teams taking part. The Sudbury Lady Wolves have at least one team entered in each of the seven divisions, from atom to intermediate.
"It's exciting that local parents get to see their kids compete for a tournament title on home ice," Armstrong added.
The Countryside rink will be the home base for the tournament, with games also being played at the Sudbury, Carmichael and Dr. Edgar Leclair (Azilda) arenas. Fans are welcome to watch the action free of charge.
