Costa Rica’s First-ever International Ice Hockey Tournament

The event is being held at the El Castillo Country Club, in the hills of Heredia, on the 18th and 19th of November.

This is Costa Rica. There is no snow, no cold and icy winters, but in a few weeks, you can get a taste of one of Canada’s most popular sport, ice hockey.

The Canadian Club of Costa Rica invites one and all to Costa Rica’s first-ever international hockey tournament, to be held at the El Castillo Country Club, on the 18th and 19th of November.

The event is organized by Bruce Callow, founder of the Castillo Knights hockey program and its youth program coach, who in his spare time is Marketing Communications Consultant at Ad Astra Rocket Company Costa Rica, English Teacher at VIPKID and Ice Hockey Coach at Castillo Country Club.

The hockey tournament will feature four teams. Because the rink is small, the games will feature 3 on 3 players with a center line instead of two blue lines. Some of the players are quite skilled while others, perhaps less so. But, it will be fun.

There is seating at one end of the rink and refreshments are available for purchase. El Castillo, in the hills above Heredia (take a sweater or jacket, it’s cold up in them thar hills), is a private club and that is why visitors need to have their names on a list at the entrance in order to be admitted.

It can take up to 1-1/2 hours to get to the Club from the Central Valley, depending on traffic.
