Welcome Letter

On behalf of the St Albert Raiders Hockey Club and St. Albert Minor Hockey Association, we welcome you to the 45th annual John Reid Memorial AAA tournament.

We are excited to continue the rich legacy of this tournament in our community. For over 44 years, teams have travelled to St. Albert to participate in this prestigious and competitive tournament, and this year is no different. There are sixteen highly competitive teams from Western Canada and the United States who will put on a display of great hockey and fiercely compete for the John Reid Memorial Tournament Championship.

This tournament has been rooted in our hockey community for decades. Over the years, numerous volunteers have contributed to its success, and this year is no different. We are tremendously proud of the work our newly formed volunteer tournament committee has done over the past six months to ensure this tournament is a success.

The volunteer efforts don’t stop there; over the course of the four days, 325 volunteers will help support the operations of this tournament. Thank you, your time and commitment are truly appreciated.

We also want to thank our business community, who has gone above and beyond to help support this event; we are very grateful for their continuation.

This is an incredible weekend, and we are thrilled to welcome you. It is a proud moment for players, parents, and coaches when you step on this ice at the John Reid Tournament, and it will no doubt be talked about for years to come. Enjoy, and good luck to all the participants.
