The Annual ‘Maine Pond Hockey Classic’ Will Return to China Lake

Pond hockey is returning to the frozen waters of China Lake. The Maine Pond Hockey Classic (MPHC) will happen February 7th, 2014.

Pond hockey is played 4 on 4 without goalies or on ice officials, and each team is allowed to have up to 7 players on their roster.

Patrick Guerette, Tournament Director and Program Coordinator at the Waterville Alfond Youth Center says “The first running of the event was a great success for everyone involved.” Players from as far as Arizona, Maryland, and Nova Scotia took part. This coming year, 250 players are expected. The tournament will feature a youth division for local players, and college division for college club teams. The MPHC is designed to be a family, youth inclusive event.

Entry fees for most divisions are $375 per team before November 16th, 2013 at which time the fee increases to $475. For the youth & college divisions the early entry fee is $250 by November 16th and increases to $325. Each team plays three pool play games for seeding followed by a single elimination tournament.

Proceeds support the Boys & Girls Clubs and YMCA of Greater Waterville at the Alfond Youth Center. Keep up to date on the event by following their Facebook page.

There are several volunteer and sponsorship opportunities available. Contact Patrick Guerette at or by at 207-873-0684.
