Before the first face-off of the tournament takes place we have made various preparations in the background through fall and winter through days and evenings. We continue to update the tournament charts when more teams have registered. When we get further information concerning the target number of teams (60) we will bring into focus the visiting teams’ accommodations, eating, hold meetings, agree on partnerships etc.

LähiTapiola tournaments ice hockey events are carried out by our junior teams players, voluntary parents and by JYP Junior`s Director of Coaching Mikko Viitanen. Without the contribution of our players parents this tournament wouldn’t be organized at this scale. LähiTapiola tournament is really a great sample of voluntary work!

I personally and behalf of the organization wish to all the junior teams in Finland and abroad a good season and see you in Jyväskylä on April of 2019!
