STREETSVILLE TIGERS HOCKEY TOURNAMENT
The Streetsville Tournament has been called serveral names over its long history.
Mr. Bill Snarr, organized the first tournament in 1968 as a fund raising event to keep the cost of registration down for the Streetsville players.
The First Streetsville Tyke Tournament Committee was founded in 1967 and was made up of the following volunteers.
Director Wm. "Bill" Snarr
Brian Anderson Tom Burke Gord McAllister Bill Appleton Al Crawford John MacPherson Dave Baldwin Don Fletcher Don Norris Bill Breadman Jim Gray Bill Russell Murray Bond Jack Hunter Wes Robinson Jim Bryant Elwood Langdon Barry Sinclair
The tournament was orignally set up for Tyke aged players (9 year old now known as Novice). The 1987 marked the 20th anniversary of the Streetsville International Tyke Tournamnent, the second largest novice tournament in Ontario. Over the years more than 9000 nine year old boys have competed in the prestigious 32 team event, and in keeping with this tournament objectives, each has walked away with a smile on his face.
The success of this tournament can be attributed to the many faithful volunteers and loyal support from the business community such as program ads, corporate donations and team sponsorship.
In 1989 the tournament name was changed to the Streetsville Novice Tournament to refect the nine year old age group.
In 1994 the tournament was expanded to include a Minor Novice Division as it became more difficult to find 32 Novice teams to compete.
In 1997 the tournament expanded again this time to include not only Minor Novice, Novice but also Minor Atom and Atom divisions.
In 1999 the tournament was totally revamped and expanded to include all Tiger Team age groups from Novice to Midget. The tournament date was changed from Easter to early November to attract more interest from out of town teams. The tournament format was changed, the tournament had been held over two weekends either starting or ending on Easter weekend since its inception in 1967 . The tournament moved to a one weekend event and the consolation rounds were discontinued. Finally the tournament was renamed the Streetsville Tigers "AA" Fall Tournament.
