Celebrate hockey at Shootout on the Snye 2020 – registration now open!

(Fort McMurray, AB – January 8, 2020) – As the Wood Buffalo region gets ready to welcome WinterPLAY, the annual celebration of the winter season, registration for the pond hockey tournament “Shootout on the Snye” is now open.

Generations of Wood Buffalo residents have played Canada’s national winter sport on outdoor ice surfaces across the region. Shootout on the Snye is a chance to celebrate our history and a great opportunity for hockey players of all ages to get involved in a timeless tradition by registering a team to participate.

Shootout on the Snye is a four-on-four pond hockey tournament and welcomes teams in all divisions starting at age 5. Teams of four to six players can register for $30 per player before January 31, and for $40 per player until February 16, when registration closes.

The puck drops on Friday, February 28 and the action will continue all weekend as a key event at WinterPLAY. Teams can find more details and complete registrations at rmwb.ca/winterPLAY.

An annual festival of the winter season and northern culture in Wood Buffalo, WinterPLAY takes place this year Friday, February 28 to Sunday, March 1. Volunteers are an integral part of delivering this fun family event to the region.
