The Forge Winter Classic: 3 on 3 Shinny Tournament
Looking for outdoor puck time on the ice this winter?
The Forge: Lemont Quarries has you covered with The Forge Winter Classic: 3 x 3 Shinny Tournament.
Kicking off December 19, 2020, a series of shinny tournaments, including one day pop-up tournaments and special multi-day tournament events will be offered at the park’s brand new Forge skating venue. Tournaments are divided into divisions based upon age (kids as young as 6 years old to adult) and skill level.
What is it?: Shinny (sometimes referred to as “pond hockey” by our neighbors to the north) uses a stick and puck like hockey, but does not have a goalkeeper, does not allow player contact, and does not allow for lifting the puck significantly off the ice. Goals are scored by sliding a puck into a small net along the ice using skating, stick-handling, and passing skill and creativity.
