General Information on the Lake Placid Tournament:
This tournament is generally the highlight of the season for players that attend – with lots of good hockey being played & great times w/ LBYH friends & their families. For those who have not attended the tournament before, here is some general information that can help you understand what it entails & determine if your family would like to participate:
Each team is guaranteed 4 round robin games with 4 teams in each division advancing to a medal round for a 5th game. Tournament opening ceremonies are usually around 4PM Thursday afternoon 11/21, with the first set of games immediately following. (Yes, I know it’s a school day, as is Friday - this tournament entails missing some school) and medal games end on Sunday afternoon.
Pricing & additional information can be found on the CanAm website. Follow the link and click “Gold Package” to see the associated per person costs & what is included. I've also attached a screen shot with pricing information. The quick & dirty is that tournament package covers tournament entry fees, hotels, meals, tournament party
LBYH teams will be staying either at the Crowne Plaza Resort OR The Golden Arrow Resort. Unfortunately, due to ongoing hotel renovations & large programs attending, CanAM could not accommodate the entire program in one hotel this year, despite having booked in April. Teams will not be split up, but we will have some teams in each hotel.
The Can Am site has a wealth of information about the tournament & what it entails. Please check that site for answers to your questions. Should you have any additional questions, please email me at
. Many more details will follow in the months to come!!
