Shamrocks holding mini tourney

The Armstrong Shamrocks are hosting a Christmas break mini tournament on Sunday, Dec. 27 starting at 11 a.m. at the Hassen Memorial Arena.

Following a model originally started by retired PVSS teacher and Shamrock Alumni Ross Shannon, who hosted an annual alumni hoops tournament, the Armstrong Shamrocks are hosting a Christmas break mini tournament on Sunday, Dec. 27 starting at 11 a.m. at the Hassen Memorial Arena.

All lacrosse players aged 17-Masters are invited to play in this non-contact masters rules event.

“We used to hold an event like this, prior to the Hassen Arena being available, during the winter at the PVSS gym using McWhippit sticks – now we can play actual lacrosse thanks to the Hassen,” said tourney organizer Chad Pieper.

“With so many alumni and current players returning home for Christmas from work or school or just visiting family at home we thought this would be a great way to get together over the holidays,” added Pieper.

Players should arrive around 10:30 a.m. at the Hassen bringing a stick, gloves, helmet with face mask and clean running shoes.
