The 59th edition of the Quebec International Peewee Tournament will be held at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City http://www.tournoipee-wee.qc.ca/en/index.html
Dave Ferrari has been appointed head coach. The team is likely to depart several days before the start of the tournament and arrive home around February 20th. All players will be billeted in pairs with local volunteer families during this tournament. Preliminary budget for the trip is approximately $5,500 per player. This cost includes all travel, team activities in Canada, non-billeted accommodation, meals and Tournament fees.
There may be some fund-raising activities that we will hold to help contribute to the above costs but these activities may not take place before the full payment is required. The tournament is open to players (girls & boys) born in the 2005 and 2006 calendar years.
This is a competitive tournament and the style of hockey played is vastly different to that played in our NSW competition. To prepare, the team will be training most weeks and it is critical to the performance of individuals and the team that all players attend all training sessions. The cost of these training sessions will be determined shortly when ice time in finalised and the costs deducted from the deposit paid. There will be no refunds for missed training sessions.
TRYOUT – $20 per player
