Why choose our tournament over others in the area?


Gene Carella, NST Tournament Director, has been presenting tournament opportunities since 1990 for what was formerly known as Grand Niagara Cataracts Hockey Association. In 1999 he started Niagara Sport tournaments to help provide youth hockey to hundreds of teams throughout the U.S. and Canada per year.   Gene also raised four hockey players, and through his travels to many tournaments, he understands what hockey parents want. Gene and his son Michael put all teams through a rigors screening process to ensure each team is placed in the proper division.  As you may know there is no exact science to paring teams.  Since there are many different classifications used by amateur hockey teams in different regions of the United States, and Canada (see
Registration Information link). Divisions can get messy if careful consideration is not taken.  We at NST, take much time and effort to create well balanced divisions. Nothing is more disheartening then driving to a tournament to blow out a team or get blown out by a team.  Teams also do not want to travel to a tournament just to be place in the same side of a division as team from their local leagues.  Gene and Mike take great pride in delivering an enjoyable tournament experience for our tournament families. This is evidenced by an incredible return rate in tournament participation by hockey associations. We only accept between 40-50 teams per tournament to ensure each division of each tournament has balanced competition.  We believe in quality over quantity when it comes to our tournaments.

 

 

 

When comparing us to others in the area, ask our competitors the following questions.

  • Are EMTs/ Medical personnel present during the entire tournament?
  • Is there a Supervisor of Officials present during every game?
  • Is there a Tournament Director available and present during the entire tournament?
  • Does the tournament run and end on time?

You will be surprised by the answers
