UPDATE (7/14/16): No roster restrictions for the ADULT BRONZE DIVISION as previously stated.
Schedule will be posted Friday July 15th
The inaugural 19th annual roller hockey tournament just west of the NIZ and the former Hess’s Department Store is expected to be the best roller ball social scene of the new millennium according to millennials, comparable only to hearing Adele for your first time. Sign up your team today for free, however, all you pay is the tax of $225 per team to embark on a journey with your compadres through a multi-tiered and tightly bracketed round-robin style of game play to become a Sportsfest jawn.
Teams sporting man-buns and beards traveling from such distant towns like Upper Black Eddy, Topton, and East Petersburg will arrive via Uber to compete and challenge the local talent. Hop over the short walls of the Border Patrol boards and reap the rewards. Feel the sustainable energy and pack extra glutens for the event as you snap chat and post emojis for everything you do including score goals, fake a pass, warm the bench, people-watch, lose a wheel, and try your best attempt at a one-legged slap shot, perfected by William Alfred “mushroom” Parker.
Couple that with announcements flowing over the loudspeaker by the silky smooth voice of Bob "Smutty" Reynolds, and it’s an overwhelming magical experience that will compel you to perform and create everlasting memes. When the action calms down, don’t forget your Vinny Gering model Speedo as you’ll want to cool off in the Cedar Beach pool (or Cedar Creek may be more appropriate for some).
The only tournament in Pennsylvania with roombas, beatboxing, unlimited Candy Crush Saga invites, lightsabers, dad-bods, jock and mandals, the Sham Wow guy, Reek's dog Dingo, Juan’s Deere, meaningless tattoos, the General Lee, free range chickens, cyber-bullies and Mr. Roper. There is fun for the whole family and just minutes from Dorney Park and Lupo’s.
The tournament will be a round-robin format. Each team is guaranteed a minimum of three games. Goalglovers have the option of skates or alternative protection for their foot fingers. Players may wear slim fit mock turtleneck tee shirts or jerseys and long as the nipples are concealed. Games will be running time utilizing a fitness tracker with two fourteen minute periods if time and Matt Broderick’s weather forecast permit. Player rosters may be changed up until the start of a team's first scheduled game.
