The AZYHL Labor Day Pre-Season Tournament Schedule is Announced

The 2018-19 AAHA hockey season is officially underway with the announcement of the Annual AZYHL Labor Day Pre-Season Tournament.

Annually the teams of the 10U and 12U Leagues take part in a fun tournament to kick off the season.

Results of these games will be used to help insure that teams are placed in a competitive division helping to make the season a learning and fun experience, but the main goal here is to have a fun weekend and to kick off the season.

Teams have been placed in Divisions for the tournament primarily to make scheduling easier, but also to help minimize the occurrence of non-competitive games. Every effort has been and is being made to ensure a fun, learning experience where the concentration is on learning individual and team skills in a game setting.

Links have been created below to assist fans in finding their favorite team's schedule and ultimately the game results and statistics.

The schedule has been prepared as unbiased as possible but accommodations have been made for Flagstaff and Tucson due to travel. If you do see an error please let us know, but changes will only be done after considerable consideration, changes will affect a number of teams and could even impact the arenas.

Everyone enjoy the weekend, there will be some really good early season hockey happening.
