The Canberra Phoenix PeeWee Team competed in the Coffs Harbour Big Banana Three-on-Three Skirmish. Now in its sixth year, the tournament includes 26 teams from 9 clubs across NSW, QLD and NSW. We played against teams from Newcastle North Stars, Southern Stars (QLD), Norwest Emperors, Blacktown Flyers, Liverpool Saints, Gold Coast Grizzlys, Brisbane Buccaneers and Canterbury Eagles.
The tournament has players aged from 5 to 16yrs play three-on-three ice hockey in small teams of six, plus a goalie.
The Canberra Phoenix played their hearts out and finished the tournament in second place winning 4 of their 5 games convincingly. Congratulations to the Blacktown Flyers that we're undefeated throughout the tournament.
