The Largest Ice Hockey Tournament in Asia
Ice Hockey is a contact team sport being recognised as fast-paced and physical. This is the eleventh anniversary of the Hong Kong 5s International Ice Hockey Tournament held at an ice rink located on the tenth floor with an ocean view. Different countries send teams to represent to compete in five divisions between the ages of 5 and 15.
Ben Cason (Year 9) joined a team called North Stars to compete in the under 15 division. It is a team formed by players coming from different nations, such as Canada, Philippines, America, Taiwan, Thailand, Sweden, Finland and of course, Australia.
The team missed out on securing gold in overtime after gaining a spot in the grand final, but was able to bring home the silver medal. Ben was also awarded the Most Valuable Player in one of the games.
The best part of the experience was the friendship that the young people have built globally through the sport.
