P​RESS RELEASE

Bradford West Gwillimbury Celebrates its 14th Annual Hockey Day

Bra​dford West Gwillimbury, ON (January 10, 2023) – A celebration of community hockey returns to BWG on Saturday, February 4, 2023, at our 14th Annual Hockey Day in BWG.

Cheer on your community and participate in outdoor on-ice fun at Bud Brown Park and Lions Park. The event will kick off at 8:30 am, with our annual Minor Hockey Association (U7 and U8 teams) Outdoor Tournament at Bud Brown Park in Bond Head.

This year's Hockey Day features an extended event that continues into the afternoon at Lions Park. From 1:00 - 4:00 pm, community members can participate in a 3 on 3 Hockey Tournament (pre-registration required). There will be two divisions available: Youth Division for ages 12 to 17 years and an Adult Division, ages 18+.

The event will include outdoor fire pits and hot chocolate (sold by Bradford Lions) to keep spectators warm as well as hockey themed games and crafts indoors.

Hockey Day in Canada was born in Toronto in 2000 and is hosted in a different Canadian town each year. The Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury launched its local event in 2009 in celebration of this community favourite winter sport and bringing the game back to basics with a fun and friendly tournament.
