From March 19-26, approximately 100 teams from 9 countries gathered in Richmond, BC, for the world's largest international adult rec hockey tournament! Lifelong memories and friendships were made during the week-long event as athletes also experienced Opening and Closing Ceremonies, an Athletes' Village packed with activities, and even a welcoming march through the streets of Richmond.
The women's division included teams from British Columbia, Switzerland, and Australia! There were some returning players, but it was a first for many to experience international competition. Team Australia made their own history with their first international event. They travelled with four coed teams, and their female athletes got extra game time stepping in to add an additional team.
