Melee In The Mountains 2022
Vail, Colorado
June 10-12, Dobson Ice Arena

The target dates have been selected for this years fun, Summer hockey showdown! The dates will be June 10th (Friday) through June 12th (Sunday). Games will start on Friday, June 10th, so please plan on arriving Friday morning. If those dates happen to change for any reason, you will be notified immediately.

Formerly known as “Blitzkrieg In Breck,” I have chosen to host this tournament in Vail again this year. The convenience of the rink location and the amazing village are just a few reasons why….plus the rink sells beer!!

I will be hosting a kick-off party at the rink so we can all hang out and have some fun – During this time, I will also be renting an hour of ice for anyone looking to lace em’ up. This will be a public skate – No sticks or pucks! This skate will be held Friday evening. 

If you have not yet participated in this fun event, the whole idea of this trip is to enjoy time away in the mountains with a little hockey on the side! The environment has a very relaxed feel with a huge focus on fun and hanging with other crazy hockey families.

Kids will get four games each. Each game will have three periods, a score keeper, referees and music.
Of course the players aren’t the only ones who get all the fun….On Saturday, I will also be hosting an adult scrimmage! This will be a game for any of the parents (mom’s and dad’s) who would like to participate in the Parent’s Showdown!

Appropriate levels for this tournament will be the following:
  • 8U (All levels – Gameplay will be different than the other levels)
  • 10U
  • 12U
  • 14U-16U
    • Team Formation – Teams will be evenly drafted based on age and experience to provide equal competition in each game. 
    • The cost will be $150 per player/$75 per goalie. Each participant will receive a reversible Hull Hockey jersey to use in the games.

I am already looking forward to a great, fun-filled hockey weekend in beautiful Vail, Colorado!
