The MGHA Classic is our tournamant where we share the MGHA spirit and style with the rest of the Gay Hockey world and the hockey community. If you haven’t played in the Classic before, it is a fun-filled weekend, jam-packed with hockey and social events. It is a bit more intense than the league season — a new team, and four games in one weekend, with teammates new and old, from the MGHA, from other Gay Hockey leagues, and friends from other hockey teams. Last year we had players from LA, Vancouver, Minnesota, and Chicago, among other places. We are hearing a lot of interest from our friends in other Gay Hockey leagues, and expect more visiting players this year!
Like the MGHA league season, we make balanced teams, to give everyone the best game experience. Unlike the league season, there are two divisions: Competitive (approximately the advanced Challenge games) and Recreational for those building their skills or who want to play a more relaxed game.
Games start Friday night, followed by a social event for everyone. Everyone plays two games on Saturday: one in the morning (not too early!), one in the afternoon. Saturday night features more social events with teammates and friends new and old. Sunday we have our final games, ending with the championship games for each division.
All the games are at the Sun Prairie Ice Arena, with two NHL rinks, and plenty of locker rooms. Registration includes four games, tournament jersey, evening social events and refreshments for players and guests at the rink.
