It is with excitement and determination that I want to make this tournament a success for Native Woman, especially since sporting events are mainly geared to men. I am part of the Executive Committee of the 7th Generation Hockey Assoiciation. We are located in Thunder Bay Ontario. We mostly concentrate in Youth Tournaments and work with future leaders and NHL players. During these tournaments we have had requests for Ladies Broomball, thus came the idea to organize this 1st Annual. We have been organizing Native youth hockey for the past 4 years and every tournament has been successful from the first drop of the puck to the last. The prizes consist of a total of $23,600.00 in cash and prizes, with first place receiving $10,000.00 and B and C cash divisions. To date we have 8 teams confirmed from all across Ontario and Quebec. We are seeking additional teams from the western provinces as well. We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully we will see your team at this tournament. Please visit our 7th Generation Site at www.eteamz.com/7thgeneration for updates and other tournaments.
