ONEHOCKEY WORLD HOLIDAY INVITE
This winter, OneHockey will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest ever youth hockey tournament.
Currently, the Minor Hockey Tournament held in Calgary in 2007 holds the record with 664 teams comprised of 10,992 players competing in 957 games on 42 sheets of ice.
OneHockey’s 2018 Holiday Invite, set for December 27-30 in Michigan, however, is well within reach of that mark with 567 teams committed as of March.
