Red Mile Cup
The First Annual Red Mile Cup
As the weather gets warmer and the NHL playoffs approach, 17th Ave in partnership with Calgary Corporate Challenge and KidSport, present the First Annual Red Mile Cup! We invite Calgarians, young and old, big and small, to participate in this event! Whether you’re a road hockey superstar or are a beer leaguer, get your team together for our first ever 3-on-3 hockey tournament!
Update For Players
Team captains will receive an email no later than the evening of Wednesday, May 9th in regards to the full schedule and their division information. If you didn’t receive the email, click here to access the schedule! This information package will also include instructions on how to submit the player and team waivers online.
Please note that if your team prefers to print and drop off the waivers in person, the whole team doesn’t need to be present, only the team captain. There are 2 ways a team can drop off their waivers in person:
- Team captains may drop off player waivers in person on Friday, May 11th from 9:00am – 2:00pm at Tomkins Park and pick up their swag bags at the same time.
- Team captains may drop off waivers the day of the tournament, Saturday, May 12th at 8:30am and pick up their swag bags. This is to ensure enough time before the tournament starts to organize the teams who missed Friday’s drop off.
Teams who submitted their waivers online will be given their swag bags throughout the day on Saturday, May 12th during the tournament.
Even if you don’t play hockey, come on down for 17th ave’s first ever 3-on-3 road hockey tournament! There will be celebrity guests, tons of giveaways and prizes for everyone, live music, games by donation for the Humboldt Broncos, and plenty more ways to get connected with your hockey community in Calgary.
