About OneHockey In the summer of 2004 OneHockey launched its first Summer Elite Hockey Tournament in Sherbrooke, Quebec and by 2006 the number of teams and players participating had grown to the point that the venue had to be relocated to Aston, Pennsylvania outside Philadelphia. Since our move to the Philadelphia area in 2006 the tournament has continued to grow. What started out as a weeklong event has developed into a two week extravaganza attracting teams and players from over thirteen countries. Our summer tournament brings thousands of players, parents and families to the Philadelphia area. We have added a spring event to our schedule in 2011. SUPER AAA level players will play in our Spruce Grove and Edmonton, Alberta tournament May 6th-8th. Please visit our web site to apply as a player

The 1st Annual OneHockey International Spring AAA Elite Challenge will be held in Spruce Grove & Edmonton Alberta. We will be using four venues to host this event. The two ice sheet Grant Fuhr/Stu Barnes skating complex in Spruce Grove has been set as the tournament’s main arena. This facility is the home of the Spruce Grove Saints Junior A team. The Tri Leisure Center which offers spectacular amenities - a water park, a soccer field and a two ice surface (http://www. trileisure.com/). For the ’02 and ’03 (non contact) divisions, the West Edmonton Mall (www.wem. com) will be used. Lastly, we will use one more facility in Edmonton. Edmonton and Spruce Grove offer many attractions, activities, and fun with places to visit and tour when you’re not playing. A number of our players have been visiting us in Philadelphia for many years and we are looking forward to seeing them visit us in Alberta this coming spring. Many of our players have made lasting friendships and look forward to reconnecting every year with their friends and families. Once you’ve experienced OneHockey, you will be wanting more because no other tournament can compare anywhere else in North America, if not the world.

North America Teams As an individual player you are invited to join what we call the North America team. The team will be made of strong Super Elite AAA players who have either sent a resume, were referred by past players, or were scouted by OneHockey staff. Following each event our coaches are asked to fill out a rating sheet and comment on each player. Only the players ranked as Super ELITE AAA players are invited to join Team North America. We realize that everyone is very busy with their current hockey commitments and we know to keep our spring event 4 days only. You should be prepared to jumpon the ice the day before the tournament. Each team will practice for two-hours the day before the tournament begins so the team can become familiar with each other. Elite players that know the game and have the skill to compete at the highest level only need a few hours together to familiarize themselves with their new teammates.
• Custom Jersey • Pant Cover • Socks • T-Shirt • Sport Shorts • Cap • Water Bottle • Arena Blanket (to keep the parents warm)
Commitment, Hotel, Team Managers... Each team has a team manager in order to make sure things are smooth and organized. Your manager will contact you upon your enrollment and you will get to meet your new teammates through your online team locker room. The team locker room is a great way for you to meet your new teammates, chat, share pictures and more. If you do not see a manager under your team name and are interested in taking on that role, please contact Mary Gilliland at firstname.lastname@example.org, ask her to send you the booklet and offer to take on that role if you’d like to – We offer a 50% refund following the tournament in exchange of our manager’s hard work. To view an updated list of managers please go to our web site, scroll over Philadelphia, then to managers and pick your birth year. .
