Here are what some of our visiting teams had to say about their Fire & Ice experience:

"...we had at your tournament this weekend. I thought the experience was great, you made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The drinks and snacks after each game is a great idea, the kids loved the pin exchange which unfortunately is no longer done at most other tournaments, your facilities are top notch and you make a great effort to keep the teams evenly matched. I will definitely look to come back next year."

Brian, Northern Rhode Island Vikings, Squirt B Team, 2013


" . . . this is the best traveling tournament that our team has been participating in over the years.  The competition is evenly matched, the organization is great, and facilities are best around, and most of all the kids had a blast."

Northern Rhode Island Vikings, Squirt B Team, 2012


" . . . just wanted to say thank you for yet another great tournament.  I have been to many tournaments over the years and yours continues to be one of the best and most organized - if not the best.  You and your staff pay attention to all the details and not just at the rink.  You always ask where we are staying and how it is, do we have a place to eat, etc.  I appreciate all you have done for us over the years."

Northern Rhode Island Vikings, Squirt A Team, 2012
