Back by popular demand.  DSEHC is excited to host our 4th Annual Christmas 3 on 3 Tournament December 27th-28th. This Christmas tournament is a 6 team/6 game guarantee format. The tournament is designed to help players be more creative and work on their skill sets. This year we will have boards separating the two games to keep pucks from bouncing out of play and allowing players to make more plays. The ultimate goal being each player has FUN!. This tournament is unlike other local 3 on 3 tournaments and is strictly for the AA/AAA level players.

    Why 3 on 3 Pond Hockey?

This tournament will be half ice, which will allow players more touches with the puck. Half ice games will help players learn to make quicker decisions with the puck and learn how to play in small areas. Player’s will learn to compete for pucks and be in more puck battles. Real Boards will divide the games to keep the games moving at higher pace. 

  • Increase player’s ability to make quicker decisions
  • Allows player’s to get more touches with the puck
  • Increased Puck Battles on smaller sheet 
  • This is a great way for players to get in shape for the season
  • Players learn to protect the puck the better using their body
  • Teaches player’s to move their feet and make moves in tighter areas.
  • Goalies will get a lot of shots
  • Players will get more scoring chances, which teaches them how to score
