2010 USPHC

The Tropical Tourney!

Who would’ve thought we’d be using umbrellas on Lake Nokomis in January? In 2010 the rain didn’t stop anyone from showing up on Friday and Saturday. Despite the weather all the players showcased great spirits, amazing sportsmanship and passion for the game. USPHC participants truly embody the essence of pond hockey.

On Sunday it wasn't cold enough to play hockey, and it wasn't warm enough to swim. But there was still enough Pond Hockey spirit to go around.

Thanks to the Minneapolis Park Board, championship teams in the Open, 40+ and 50+ divisions had the opportunity to finish what they started on Saturday, Jan. 30th, 2010 at Lake Nokomis.


The Golden Shovel and Silver Scoop


It is well known in pond hockey lore that he who possesses the shovel possesses ultimate power over the game--without it the game is lost underneath layers of snow. Open Division teams compete to have their team name inscribed on a piece of pond hockey history: the Golden Shovel, while Rink Rat Division teams play to have their name etched into the Silver Scoop.

The Bill Wood Award


The Bill Wood MVP Sweater is awarded to the player who most embodies what it means to play pond hockey: teamwork, effort, skill and sportsmanship. The sweater memorializes Bill Wood, a true pond hockey legend. "Woody" was a pond hockey fixture whose skills on the ice were only overshadowed by his warm and generous personality.
