           Play On! Halifax returns to the Halifax Common in June

   Hockey Night in Canada's Play On! is getting ready for a fun filled weekend
as it returns to its roots at the Halifax Common on Saturday, June 18 and
Sunday, June 19.

   "The Oval, Cogswell and Trollope Streets provide players a setting ideal
for a great weekend of street hockey action" says Scott Hill, National Play
On! Commissioner, "this year's tournament is shaping up to be Halifax's best
yet!"

   The tournament hosts 22 divisions ensuring that there will be appropriate
competition for every age, gender and skill level.  New this year, tournament
organizers have increased roster size to nine (previously maximum roster
size was seven) and added new divisions in every age category.  This year's
Halifax UPS Corporate Division will benefit Christmas Daddies.  Teams that
register in this division compete for the mini replica Redwood Cup on
Saturday.

   "We are building 55 street rinks around the Halifax Common," says Roxanne
Robinson, Halifax Event Director, adding "we anticipate hosting 600 teams
and more than 4,400 participants and up to 20,000 spectators over two days -
that's a lot of people!"

   Tournament organizers are encouraging teams to register soon before time
and space run out. The early bird registration deadline is June 1st at
midnight.

   The program represents a unique yet true celebration of both Canadian
culture and sport.  Hockey Night in Canada's Play On! is Canada's largest
sports festival, which originated in Halifax in 2003.  Since its beginnings,
more than two million participants have attended 145 Play On! events across
the country.  In its 13th year this season, Hockey Night in Canada's Play
On! is excited to score big with ten large-scale tournaments being operated
across Canada. 

   Not a player? The Play On!  Halifax event is also looking for volunteers and
officials.  Sign up at playon.ca today!
