Shootout on the Snye Registration is Now Open

(Fort McMurray, AB – January 6, 2017) – Hockey lovers in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo have the chance to be a part of history. Registration is now open for the 10th annual Shootout on the Snye.

“The Shootout on the Snye is always a fan favourite at WinterPLAY,” said Mayor Melissa Blake. “I encourage hockey players of all ages to register a team and join us as we celebrate 10 years of this great Wood Buffalo tradition!”

This four-on-four pond hockey tournament welcomes teams in all divisions starting at age 5. Teams of four to six players can register for $30 per player before Jan. 27, and for $40 per player until Feb. 13, when registration closes.

Ice hockey has been played on the region's frozen waterways dating back to the 1930s.

The puck drops on Friday, Feb. 24, 2017 and will continue all weekend as an integral part of WinterPLAY. For more details about Wood Buffalo’s celebration of all things winter and to register your team, visit
