friends, hockey, celebrating our coach!

Dear (former) Icehawks and other hockey fans,

Roger Provencher is our always smiling coach. From NHL training member to Eredivisie icon, to coach of the Icehawks, alumni team the Midnight Mooners and local youth. Roger has been doing this for many years now and that is why we are going to put him in the spotlight with a major ice hockey tournament.

Roger started coaching with the Icehawks 25 years ago. He also turns 65 this year.

We also want to celebrate our 35th year, which we couldn’t do before because of Covid lockdowns.

Because we want to focus on the former members of the Icehawks, we would like to ask you to register individually. Teams are formed from this and we may supplement that with complete teams that we know.

This tournament will take place on:

April 20th, 2024
start of matches: 10:00 am
end of last match: 9:00 PM

All games will be held in IJssportcentrum Eindhoven, there’s free parking next to the rink.

The tournament costs are €40-€60 including lunch and dinner. It depends on how many people join us! Refreshments will be provided in between.

FAQ:

When can i register?
Now! For us it’s better to know early how many players we can expect. If we get more players it gives us the opportunity to organize more fun activities around and on the ice.

Can I subscribe a full team?
For now: no. The tournament registration is open for individual players only. If you want your team to be put on the waiting list, please send a message to us and we’ll keep in touch.

I want to participate in the day, but not play ice hockey myself
This is not a problem, but we do ask for a contribution for lunch and dinner. This also applies to fans, family and friends you want to bring along.

I’d like to play with my old line from back in the day. Is that possible?
We will try to organize the teams in such a way that they give the most fun for everyone, by mixing the levels of players. But we can try to take into account that you are on the ice with your old comrades as much as possible.

I don’t have any ice hockey equipment anymore
Let us know in the comments of the answer form, we will see what we can do for you.

Has a place to sleep been arranged?
No sleeping accommodation has been arranged for the participants of the tournament. The expectation is that after the tournament we will go to the infamous Stratumseind to end the tournament while enjoying a drink. There are many hotels near Stratumseind.

How does payment work?
Payment is only possible via bank transfer.

To make it easy to pay, payment links will be shared via e-mail.
The tournament fee must be paid in one go before 1st of February 2024.
Payment can also be made directly for visitors who do not play themselves but would like to eat and drink.
A voluntary donation can be made to contribute to Roger’s birthday gift.

If you can’t use the payment links, please make a bank transfer.

Can i leave my bag at the rink after the tournament?
This is only possible for current Icehawks members, please take the bag home or to your hotel afterwards. If this poses a problem, please contact the commitee.

Is the tournament kid friendly?
Not for playing in the tournament. Also the other rink and 400m rink will be closed. If there’s more kids coming we can think about some activities.
