Starting Dec. 6, 79 teams from across the province, ranging from novice to minor-midget age groups, will inhabit around around the city, including Countryside, Carmichael, Cambrian, McClelland and Walden.
For the first time this year, the tournament committee is introducing a minor-midget division.
"We've always hosted novice A to midget AA," said tournament co-chair Chantal Levesque. "The one division we never hosted was minor-midget A and AA... It's very new and exciting for us. We're actually going to host a few teams from areas we've never had before."
The tournament is set to wrap up Dec. 9 with finals taking place Sunday afternoon at McClelland, Countryside and Carmichael Arenas.
Admission is free for fans. A full schedule of the tournament can be found at www.sudburysilverstick.com.
Winners from the Sudbury Silver Stick tournament will move onto the international level.
