The Countdown Starts Now!


Over the next few weeks you will be hearing a lot about our 1 st Annual Hockey Day at VMHA, the most exciting, fun-filled family event your VMHA has ever put together. 

This event was designed to bring together everything our fantastic association stands for…competition, team building, friendship, family and most of all, the feeling of community inherent to hockey. 

Your VMHA has worked hard through the summer months to put together an all-day event designed to include and engage everybody in your family. We are SO excited!

When: Saturday, November 4 th , 2917 (All Day)
Where: Agrodome
  • Photo Day
  • 3 on 3 Tournament
  • Skills Competition
  • Exhibition Games
  • Raffles, silent auctions, puck toss (Big $$$ to be won!)
  • Carnival Games
  • Gear Sale
  • Food Trucks
  • And to cap the day off, the 2017 Annual Puck n’ Party (sorry kids, this one’s for your parents)


WE NEED HELP in the following areas. All volunteer participation regarding Hockey Day at VMHA will qualify toward completion of your volunteer
