RALEIGH, NC (April 27, 2000) – The Carolina Hurricanes’ Mobile Hockey Tour, presented by Reichhold, will be hosting three regional youth in-line hockey tournaments around the state in the coming weeks. Tournaments will be held in the Carolina Hurricanes’ inflatable rink system on May 6-7 at the Entertainment and Sports Arena, May 13-14 at Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, and May 20-21 at the Charlotte Sports Center in Charlotte.
The winners from each of the 10, 12 and 14-and-under age divisions will face off at the Entertainment and Sports Arena on June 10-11 for the Championships. The tour expects about 12 teams to compete at each regional site. The event is designed to give local youth hockey players the opportunity to play in a quality tournament for a low cost and meet teams from across the state that they might otherwise not compete against. Reichhold is assisting the Hurricanes in this effort.
“Reichhold is proud to work with the Hurricanes in presenting the Mobile Hockey Tour,” stated Steve Brechbiel, Vice President of Corporate Communications for Reichhold. “This is a great opportunity for young athletes across North Carolina to showcase their talents.”
The Canes Mobile Hockey Tour hosted the Canes College In-line Hockey Tournament earlier in April. The NHL’s in-Line hockey tournament, NHL Breakout, will visit the Entertainment and Sports Arena on September 9-10.
