General Information

This information was provided by Peggy Cunha ( on January 10th, 1997.

I am responding to the request on what the tournament in Brampton is like from those that have attended it before.

The tournament is played in several rinks in and around Brampton. We stayed at hotels near the airport, which is centrally located to all the rinks. It took about 20 minutes to get from the hotel to the farthest rink. The rinks range from older facilities to very modern ones. If I remember correctly, all the rinks had snackbars open during the tournament for a quick drink or bite to eat.

It is very valuable to get your hands on a program and the schedule if you want to try and watch any of the other divisions playing since things are spreadout so far. The tournament was well run and it was great to see so many girls and women playing the sport. I love watching the little girls playing, wish I had learned to play at that age.

One rink is the headquarters and several things are available there. The best is the massage and chiropractic personnel on hand for your use. You can get a warm up massage there before a game or one afterwards to soothe your sore muscles. Also there is licensed personnel available to put you back together after an injury and get you playing again. All these services are free. I am probably giving away our teams secret weapon, since many teams didn't take advantage of these services and luckily the lines were never too long when we dropped in. Now that I am telling you about it, I maybe sorry.

The tournament was also selling an assortment of T-shirts, sweatshirts and other clothing with girls/women's hockey as the theme. These items were on sale at a limited number of rinks, but the headquarters had the best selection.

Some things to remember, see and do -

For the adults in the group. All bars,etc are closed the Friday of the tournament because this is Good Friday.

Shopping. There are a number of large sporting goods stores with big selection of hockey equipment. If you need to replace equipment, this trip is a good time. The equipment can be cheaper in Canada, and you get your tax money back when you return to the US. There are some big sales going on that weekend always too. We can't believe how cheap tape is up there. Stick and sock tape in California runs about US$3 a roll. At the tournament we have bought 12 rolls for CAN$9. Everyone on our team gets their years supply when there.

Sightseeing. The team usually has time to get out and see some of sights in and around Toronto. Niagara Falls is only a couple of hours away and can be visited in an afternoon. It is worth seeing, even when frozen. Also the Hockey Hall of Fame is in downtown Toronto, don't miss it! Gretzky's restaurant is near the BlueJay's stadium. Unfortunately the Leafs don't have any home games during the tournament this year but you can visit the Maple Leaf Gardens.

I hope this information is helpful to all of you attending this year. Look me up and say hello. I will be with the California Rays (Senior B or C division? not sure)
