T-Mobile Backyard Classic Hockey Tournament
WHEN: Saturday, January 20: 7:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. | WHERE: The Ice at Canalside
This year, The T-Mobile Backyard Classic Tournament will be Friday, January 19th, Saturday, January 20th, and Sunday, January 21st at Canalside. The tournament, which started in a backyard, now has grown into one of the largest regional outdoor pond hockey tournaments in New York. In 10 years The Backyard Classic has had 175 team, 500 players and has raised over $75,000 for charity.
Separating themselves from other pond hockey events by using full size nets and goalies and also, unlike all other pond hockey events, the T-Mobile Backyard Classic spans all age groups from Micron through Adult level players, making it a very family friendly, fun event for all ages.
The beneficiary, The Buffalo Sabres Sled Hockey Organization is a non-profit, competitive, sled hockey organization promoting athletic activity of physically challenged youth and adults across WNY. Special thanks goes out to sponsors for the 10th Annual T-Mobile Backyard Classic Tournament
