House Hockey Tournaments

Sister Jovita Cup & Father Gary Cup

House Hockey Cup Tournaments: 

In response to the changes happening in our residence buildings and on our campus, together we needed to create a framework in which house hockey could continue to thrive. With said changes in mind, we created the Father Gary and Sister Jovita Cups – two house hockey tournaments that can thrive within our changing campus community! These tournaments allow us to keep the traditional fun that comes with each game, while offering additional events! The U has worked to collaborate with the house Presidents and Vice Presidents and will continue to encourage student feedback and engagement!

Games:

Gary Cup: The Father Gary Cup will be the male tournament that will take place between all of our residence communities. We chose to name it after Father Gary because of the constant support he has offered our students throughout the years, as well as his love for house hockey! 

Sister Jovita Cup: The Sister Jovita Cup will be the female tournament that will take place between our residence communities. Sister Jovita has been a very impactful presence to the students on our campus, and she is excited to be a part of our new tradition! 

These tournaments will be happening simultaneously in the second semester, February 29th– March 7th. While the framework is provided, we are looking to have further discussion with students regarding the brackets, as well as other logistical concerns! 

Events: 

Along with the games, we are looking to have events. The events are as follows: 

Draft Event: We will be having an event during Frost Week where teams can introduce their players, get their jerseys, and officially kick off the house hockey season! 

Teams: Cameron, MacKinnon, Bishops, MacIsaac, O'Regan, Riley, MSB, Off-Campus.

Festival: During the tournament, we will be holding a festival so that students have something to do in between the games! 

Supersub: After the championship games, the U will have a supersub to celebrate the closing of the tournaments
