The Young Ones will be taking on the Old Ones in a street hockey game as part of Youth Week.

LINC celebrating Youth Week with road hockey tourney

Young Ones vs. Old Ones on May 2 in The LINC Youth Centre parking lot

BC Youth Week is May 1-7, and the LINC Youth Centre is inviting the community to get in on the action at the “Young Ones vs. Old Ones” Road Hockey Tournament on Saturday, May 2 at The LINC.

Youth 11 to 18 can register as teams or individuals for this free event. Youth will play throughout the day to determine a winning team, who will then take on an adult team comprised of local youth workers, volunteers, and Courtenay Council members. Games are scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m., with the final game being held in the afternoon.

“The final game is always a fun one to watch,” explained Kristine Klupsas, Youth Services Coordinator at The LINC. “Usually the youth annihilate the adult team, but hopefully not this year.”

Youth Week is a celebration held annually during the first week of May, and helps recognize and acknowledge youth as an important part of their communities.

The “Young Ones vs. Old Ones” Road Hockey Tournament is free, and also includes prizes for the winning youth team and a free barbecue lunch for everyone who participates. To register in advance, visit courtenay.ca/linc or email aforbes@courtenay.ca

Teams that register prior to April 25 will be entered to win a $25 gift card to Happy’s Source for Sports. Registration will also take place the morning of the event on May 2 at 9:30 a.m. For more information on this or any other Youth Week events,  call The LINC Youth Centre at 250-334-8138.
