The Northbrook Bluehawks and the Winnetka Hockey Club are proud to be hosting the 9th Annual Wishbone Invitational youth hockey tournament from Wednesday, November 23 through Sunday, November 27.
Dozens of teams from across the Midwest, including Illinois, Ohio, Iowa and Missouri will be participating in this year's tournament. Players range in age from Mites (7-8 years old) to Bantams (13-14 years old).
All games will be played at the Northbrook Sports Center, Winnetka Ice Arena, and North Shore Ice Arena. Admission to every game is free. This offers an outstanding opportunity for the public to experience youth hockey at its best.
During the tournament, the Bluehawks will once again be coordinating the "Helping Hands" program, which provides all players with an opportunity to help individuals in need. All tournament participants have been asked to donate food items which will be distributed to local food pantries this holiday season.
The Northbrook Hockey League is a community-based organization that offers learn-to-play, recreational house league hockey and competitive travel hockey programs for boys and girls ages 4 and up.
