The Dskate community is slated to present its inaugural Dskate World Diabetes Day Hockey Classic — a free hockey tournament and platform for young hockey players living with Type 1 Diabetes.
The event is designed for young players with a passion for hockey to showcase their skills and change the conversation about how to live a full and rich life.
The hockey tournament is presented in partnership with Novo Nordisk, exclusively for players living with Type 1 Diabetes.
Fulfilling a long-time dream to see an ALL-T1D hockey team hit the ice, Dskate is proud to offer space for up to 16 all-T1D hockey teams.
With room for 17 players per team (including 9 forwards, 6 defensemen and 2 goalies), Dskate aims to ice a competitively balanced group of teams that will allow T1D hockey players and their families to celebrate the growing community.
The three-day tournament will take place from November 13 -15, 2019 at the Canlan Ice Sports York, Murray Ross Pkwy, North York, ON M3J 3M4.
There will be free registration for all Type 1 Diabetes players who wish to participate. Registration includes one practice, five games, one special skill-testing combine, education sessions, and family events.
