The Broward Cup will run from Friday, May 19 to Sunday, May 21 at Weston Regional Park. The trophies awarded to the winning teams will be presented by the Florida Panthers Alumni Association. Unlike most recreational sports, the Broward Cup is very competitive and requires players to exemplify good sportsmanship, fair play, and teamwork to be successful.
"The City of Weston welcomes this prestigious tournament that will bring many athletes from around the county to Weston," said Mayor Eric M. Hersh who has previously coached his son in the Broward Cup. "It will help showcase our park facilities, businesses, and the city as a whole. We are delighted to be the host city and look forward to this great event."
The WARHL was established in October of 1995 to promote the sport of recreational roller hockey and to provide children from ages four to 18 with the opportunity to play in local and national competitions. The league's home rink is Weston Regional Park.
"The thing that I am thrilled about is that we have the most substantial enrollment out of any of the Broward leagues" WARHL director Rich Turin said. "Having the Panthers involved adds instant credibility to the Broward Cup. I am ecstatic we have this relationship because it allows us to help grow the sport of hockey in South Florida."
This year's event will have vendors set up to speak about the latest equipment, food booths, and a live band. Stanley C. Panther will also be in attendance with a bounce house and interactive Panthers games.
"The Florida Panthers are extremely excited to once again partner with the City of Weston and the WARHL to make this a great Broward Cup," said Randy Moller Vice President Community Development.
