Street hockey kids raise money for charity

Montessori Force 4 – out-duel Green Hornets in Novice division

More than 150 kids between the ages of four and 17 had fun in the sun while raising money for two great causes at the Cayman Islands Youth Roller Hockey Club’s second annual Street Hockey Tournament at Camana Bay.

Forty teams each paying CI$100, registration fee, took part in the tournament which raised thousands of dollars for CaymanHospice Care and UNICEF Cayman Kids charities.

The registration money was added to the funds provided by sponsors Mourant Ozannes, Ernst & Young, Camana Bay and The Dart Foundation, after the costs for running the tournament had been covered.

Finally, a silent auction which included a tail-gate barbeque and a Florida Panthers signed jersey raised even more, bringing the total to around CI$10,000.

Each team consisted of four players, and were organised into age group categories: Mites (six and under), Novice (eight and under), Atom (10 and under) Pee-Wees (13 and under) and Bantams (17 and under).

After a hard morning’s sport in the hot sun, Purple Crushers won the Mites category, The Tornados won the Novice, the Rugby Boys won the Atom category, the Driveway Destroyers won in the Pee-Wee category, and Swanky won the Bantam category.
