We are happy to announce that the 2020 Almost Winter Classic will be held on Saturday, December 5th!
If you are new to the CSHL, the AWC is our annual (free) tournament to commemorate the very first pick-up game we played in 2010. This year will mark our 10th anniversary and what better way to celebrate than to take the tournament back to our roots…Waymer Park in Huntersville, NC. As usual, there will be a cook-out/pot luck food & drink. A separate sign-up will be posted for anyone that would like to bring something.
There are some caveats to this tournament however. Due to NC COVID-19 restrictions on the maximum number of people allowed to gather outdoors (currently 50), the number of players will be limited as will the total number of guests. We realize this is a big change from previous years as we usually encourage players to bring their families and friends, but unfortunately our hands are tied when it comes to these restrictions.
As in the past, goalies will have the opportunity to sign up first (time and date will be relayed so that all potential goalies will have as equal of a chance to sign up as possible) and the next day runners will be invited via Opensports.
Keep in mind that restrictions may change between now and then in regards to the pandemic so adjustments may have to be made in regards to number of players, postponement, etc.
Keep your eyes peeled on Opensports and Facebook this weekend for more info regarding when the invites will be sent out.
Looking forward to a fun tournament!
