A weekend of hockey and camaraderie is the ideal way to build long-lasting relationships. Please consider playing in the tournament (all skill levels are welcome, as we have a weighted scoring system that encourages teamwork). Please promote the tournament in your chapter and in your hockey network.

Don’t take it from us, read the great feedback below we’ve received from previous attendees!
- Great hockey for a great cause. Love sharing the gift of hockey with great group of professional men and women — and acting as an ambassador to those with greater challenges to access to the game. (Aaron Kendeall – Pittsburgh)
- The 2023 HPIB tournament was a fantastic experience. I strongly recommend this experience for other players. Join the HPIB, they support great causes and have great events such as this hockey tournament. (Jeff Sadler – Columbus)
- Was a pleasure to meet, hang with and rock a weekend like we did this year! I won’t miss this ever again and I want to see it grow to multi-level hockey programs all in one area….renewed my love for the game!! (Reed Low – St. Louis)
- I got introduced to HPIB because my cousin asked me to help with his Blind Hockey Clinic in Chicago. HPIB does an amazing job of supporting ASHA which is near and dear to my heart. It proves that hockey players not only have a love for the game but so much more to give back. I cannot say enough good things about the HPIB tournament, it is the highlight skate of the year. Not only because of the caliber of play but because of the amazing support they have for ASHA. (Samantha Johns – Detroit)
- Being a member for less than a year, I have been blown away at the impact that this organization and its members have made in their communities. Big or small, I have seen these hockey events connect professionals for something larger than the game itself. (Cameron Poupard – Columbus)
- The tournament is superbly organized and is held at an excellent facility. Information flows very well prior to and during the tournament. The vast majority of the players understand and support the tournament’s goals of networking, fun and giving. I look forward to next year’s event. (Roger Goodes – Indianapolis)
- I drove just under 6 hours to meet and play in a tournament that I barely knew anyone. I left the tournament with 1/2 dozen good relationships that I believe will last a long time. Thankful and appreciative of all the hard work to make the event so welcoming. (Peter de Jong – Chicago)
- I would highly recommend the HPIB charity hockey tournament to anyone looking for a fun and meaningful way to give back to the hockey community. (Don Giroux – Minneapolis)
- This was the first year I’ve played, I had an absolute blast one of the best parts was watching the wildcats Vs HPIB teams play, seeing the excitement of the kids playing and see what all the money and hard work that goes into this tournament going to was awesome. (Alex Guest – Cleveland)
- This is one of the best tournaments I’ve ever played in! I’ve gotten to meet so many awesome people, it’s really a great bonding experience over the greatest sport. And knowing that all the money raised is going to a great cause makes it that much better. I will definitely be back next year! (Alison Mazzara – Detroit)
- This was my first year participating and I absolutely loved every second of this weekend. Being able to meet people other members of the association from different areas was great and really highlighted the true value of HPIB. The tournament was a bonus, and it was wonderful to meet the ASAH kids. (Charles Maxwell – Rochester)
- This is a great event attended by those with a common interest in philanthropy and networking using hockey as the catalyst bringing everyone together. (Jason Costa – Maryland)
- HPIB is a great way for anyone who loves the game to collectively make a difference for noble causes in the name of the sport. The HPIB Tournament is a first-class event where you will experience fun, comradery and the charitable spirit of the game in & out of the 85×200. (Mike Natyshak – Toledo)
- I have participated in many adult league team tournaments and draft style tournaments and the HPIB charity tournament is by far the best run tournament that I have participated in. Every detail is taken care of and thought of the cost is unbelievably reasonable and in comparison to other tournaments it is by leaps and bounds the best value for your dollar and its all for charity with proceeds being donated to an amazing organization in ASHA. (Kevin Henry – Columbus)
- The HPIB tournament is one of my favorite weekends of the year. There is nothing better than getting a bunch of hockey guys (and ladies) together for a weekend of hockey, comradery, and celebration to promote awareness and raise money for an incredible cause. The people and leadership involved with HPIB are top notch. Anyone in business or in the hockey community would benefit from HPIB. (Tyler Rose – Pittsburgh)
- I thought it was very well organized, reminded me of when I was a kid. Enjoyed playing with a new group of guys all different skill levels. Really liked the format with the A B Cs being handicapped. (Ryan Steigmeier – Cleveland)
- HPIB is an awesome organization doing good for the hockey community and the annual charity tournament is a great time. It’s fun, competitive hockey and I loved it. I can’t wait for next year! (Jim Bathgate – Cleveland)
- Thank you to HPIB and everyone involved in putting the tournament together. HPIB is a first-class organization that cares for its members and provides a significant event to unite everyone. The amount of work put into this week cannot go unnoticed, and I will be returning for years to come. (Brian Wadsworth – Cleveland)
- Driving from Indianapolis is a haul, but well worth the 5-hour drive to attend one of the best organized and run hockey tournaments in the country. And the fact we’re raising money for ASHA too, make the experience even more rewarding. (Matt Walker – Indianapolis)
- The tournament gets better each year. The ASHA game was the highlight of the event, seeing that the money raised is being utilized and supporting a very worthy cause. (Damian Fenton – Cleveland)
