2018 Memorial Day 250 Street Hockey Tournament

Greetings to all!
Come join us for a fun day of hockey, camaraderie, and help out the group at the same time!
The 2018 Memorial Day 250 tournament will be held on Saturday May 26th at 9am in the basketball courts at Waymer Park, Huntersville NC. This tourney is a benefit of sorts as the money will go to fund a few of our initiatives including applying for non-profit status and steps to find/fund our own facility.

Here are some highlights:
– $20 dollar donation for runners, $10 for goalies, payable at the OpenSports event sign up page
– 4 game guarantee
– Round robin/single elimination format (with a few twists)
– post-tourney cookout at the park
– prize(s) for the winning team (TBD)

This will be a draft style tournament, of sorts.
Deadline to sign up will be Sunday, May 20th. Teams will then be formed from the player pool in order to make them as fair and equal as possible.

If it turns out that you cannot play, refund deadline is 48 hours before tournament start.

This should be a pretty fun tourney as we get back to our roots at Waymer Park.

Let’s get a big turnout guys and girls!!

Charlotte Street Hockey: New Directions

Hello all!

There are a number of plans and happenings going on at the CSH and we wanted to give everyone a much overdue update.

Hit the Dek Podcast: if you haven’t given this a listen, please do. It was a fun experience for sure! Click here to listen!

RSHL Ironman tournament: our boys kicked butt up in Raleigh a few weeks ago with both C-division teams meeting in the finals! Thanks to the RSHL for hosting another great event. This bodes well for the CSH travel team as both teams had members sprinkled throughout.

There is a little bit of bad news. Regretfully we are not going to be able to offer a league at the rink. The details do not matter at this point. But this disappointment has reinforced the fact that we really need of a facility we can call our own. We are growing in numbers but are only able to offer pick-up games and the occasional tournament.

The ultimate goal of this group is to have an outdoor dek hockey rink built, run by some of us. We could then offer leagues, host national tournaments, hold youth camps, etc.

To kickoff the fundraising, we’ll be hosting a fun little tournament at Waymer Park (maybe have a cookout there as well) sometime in early May. Cost would be something like $20-25 but 100% will go towards the rink. We’ll probably have some t-shirt sales too (CSH koozies anyone?)

If anyone would like to be involved in this project or have constructive ideas, don’t hesitate to talk to either myself or Nick Rose.

More details about the tournament coming soon. Stay tuned!

Charlotte Street Hockey is now on OpenSports.net!

Charlotte Street Hockey is migrating our sign-up page from the Sign-up Genius application to OpenSports.net! This is a much easier and cleaner interface for both users and admins.

If we have your email address on file, you will be receiving an email with an invite to our page on OpenSports.net. We strongly encourage you to join so that you can receive invites to pick-up games, tournaments, etc. OpenSports also has an app for Android and IOS. You can download them at the links provided below. If any of our events are changed or cancelled, you will be able to receive push notifications via the app and/or email.
IOS: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/opensports/id1056940981?ls=1&mt=8
Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=opensports.android

When opening the link to our events page on OpenSports, please follow these simple instructions:

  • Click on the event that you wish to sign up for.
  • On the next page that opens (event details), click on the green “join” button at the bottom of the page.
  • Select either “goalie” or “winger” (all runner positions are wingers for this application).
  • You will then be prompted to either sign up with Facebook or you may join OpenSports.net (if you have not already) by entering your email address to create an account (highly recommended). You can also follow the group if you create an account.
  • Hit the green “sign up” button and you’re done!

Our intent is to streamline our scheduling/notification process since we have multiple players spread out over many different interfaces. We’d like to be less Facebook/email driven as well.

The link to the event page for CSH is below and it will also be added to the “pick-up games” page on the website and in the pinned post on our Facebook page.
