Pond Hockey Classic and Pure Hockey Team Up
Pure Hockey is proud to announce a national sponsorship of the Pond Hockey Classic, a series of outdoor hockey tournaments held throughout the U.S.A. Established in the fall of 2009 as a single tournament in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire, the Pond Hockey Classic has grown to additional locations in Vermont, New York and Montana, with participating players from 43 U.S. states and five Canadian provinces. As part of the partnership, Pure Hockey will become the Official Hockey Retailer and Apparel Provider for all four of the Pond Hockey Classic Tournaments in 2016 and will sell Pond Hockey Classic products both online and on-site at the tournaments.
“This is a perfect fit for a company like Pure Hockey,” said Kyle Norris, Dir. Business Development of Pure Hockey. “We’ve had many of our own employees play in these tournaments over the past few years and all of them came back from the tournament with glowing reviews. We’re very excited to be an official sponsor and even more excited to be on-site with this great partnership.”
“We are excited to have Pure Hockey on board as a premiere sponsor and exclusive merchandiser of the 2016 PHC tourneys.” said Scott Crowder, PHC Commissioner, “Pure Hockey is a company that lives and breathes the sport of hockey and fits perfectly into our tournament series which attracts pond hockey faithful from all over North America.”
This year the PHC will host four tournaments. The 7th Annual New England Pond Hockey Classic will be held in Meredith NH (February 5-7), the 5th Annual Lake Champlain Pond Hockey Classic in Colchester VT (February 12-14), the 3rd Annual Montana Pond hockey Classic in Kalispell MT (February 19-21) and the 6th Annual Big Apple Pond Hockey Classic in New York NY at Bryant Park (February 27-28).
