The EIHA Junior Leagues Management Committee (JLMC) has extended an invite to hockey fans from across the country to come and watch some of the very best junior teams battle for their National Championship.
The top junior clubs at U11, U13, U15 and U18 converge on iceSheffield this coming weekend for the JLMC National Junior Finals.
The event features a 13-game schedule across the weekend with almost 22 hours of live action.
Play begins on Saturday, 13th May, at 9.00am with the first U11 semi-final. U13 and U15 action follows before the U18 National Final between Okanagan UK and Sheffield at 2.00pm – a repeat of the Rob Laidler Plate final from three weeks previously.
The second semi-finals in the U11, U13 and U15 age groups follow to round off the first day action.
Sunday’s schedule starts at 9.00am with the bronze medal matches at U11, U13 and U15 featuring the losing semi-finalists from Saturday play.
The National Finals begin at 1.45pm with the U11 game, followed at 3.00pm by the U13s and closing with u15 Final at 4.45pm.
