14th Annual U.S. Pond Hockey Championships

Hockey. The way nature intended. Outdoors in the crisp winter air, skate blades gliding on the fresh ice below, with the sounds of clacking sticks and the smell of grilling bratwurst filling the air.

Reunite with your friends over a weekend when time can stand still and we can all be kids for three days. The champions will go down in history with their names etched into the Golden Shovel, a symbol of our lifelong love and passion for the purity of this outdoor game.

Volunteer Opportunities

Want to volunteer your time and help make the 2019 U.S. Pond Hockey Championships a mammoth success? Then you've come to the right place. Be a part of the "Best National Amateur Sporting Event" (Mpls./St. Paul Magazine) without even lacing up your skates. Hundreds of helping hands are needed to get the show on the road (or as we say, to get the ice on the pond). We could not have a successful tournament without our fabulous volunteers!

Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorship Opportunities for the 2019 U.S. Pond Hockey Championships are now available. We would love to discuss how we can integrate your brand into this premier event.
