2nd Annual Summer Hockey Camp
TCHC hosted a small tournament/camp at Okaya, Nagano last summer. It was a good small "summer hockey camp" with 3 exhibition games and the Final Game, and it is also a good little family trip.
This year, we are planning to hold another summer hockey camp on 6/30 (Sat) & 7/1 (Sun).
The daily schedule would be almost same as the last year (3 exhibition games, 1 final game, and BBQ at night).

Charity Tournament at Shin-Yokohama
The Tokyo Canadians Hockey Club and The "Smile and Dream" will hold a charity tournament at Shin-Yokohama on September 10th, 2011. Below is the statement released by TCHC and the "Smile and Dream";
Earthquake and Tsunami.
Tragically, most of the players lost family and/or Friends. The children continue to live in the area surrounded by the constant and stressful reminders of that tragic day.
Our goal for the event is to give these kids an opportunity to get away for a weekend to play the sport they love with their teammates. Hopefully the tournament will not only re-ignite their spirit and camaraderie, but inspire the players to continue to follow their dreams and to continue playing hockey.
At the same time, we will raise funds to donate directly to the rink to help all the local teams get back on the Ice.
