Sharks and Parks Street Hockey Tournament a Success
false

The San Jose Sharks, in conjunction with NHL Street, held its annual Sharks and Parks street hockey tournament on Saturday, Sept. 29 in the HP Pavilion parking lot. Competitive games were held from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., in which over 200 kids from surrounding Bay Area youth programs battled it out for the chance at street hockey glory.

SJ Sharkie was on hand in to crash the party in a way only he can do, jumping in aiding an extra fin to the teams that were down early in the morning.

Le Boulanger surprised everybody at lunch time and generously donated food for the hungry competitors, a needed recharge for the afternoon’s slate of games.

In the end, three teams were crowned champions in three different age groups ranging from ages 7-15. The Hawes Hawks swept the oldest and youngest divisions while the Coastside Cougars took home the middle division championship.

Sharks and Parks was created in 1991 as a program that provides schools, community centers and youth organizations with street hockey equipment and coaching tools to make hockey more accessible to local youth. All that is required is a pair of sneakers and the Sharks provide the sticks, balls, nets and everything else necessary.

“We estimate that we have about 4,000 kids participating in 30 program centers all over Northern California,” said Sharks Fan Development Coordinator Tim Howell. “It goes about as far north as Red Bluff and as far south as Santa Cruz."
