Website Sponsor Commitment Form

Martin Luther King Junior asserted, "I have a dream that one day ... little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers." February 24 - 26, 2012 the spirit of these words will be alive in Hockey in the Hood 8. While hockey players don't necessarily "join hands" there will be plenty of hard checks and high-fives at Hockey in the Hood 8 in Detroit, MI.
The Detroit Hockey Association will host Hockey in the Hood at Jack Adams Arena. Select games will also be played outside at Clark Park (1130 Clark Street, Detroit, MI‎ - (313) 297-9328)‎.


Slide Show from HITH 4 - 6
The annual Hockey in the Hood tournament breaks down stereotypes and brings diverse inner-city hockey teams together for a tournament that is capped off by the presentation of the Willie O’Ree championship trophy, the Willie O’Cup. In 2008 HITH IV celebrated Willie O'Ree's 50th anniversary! O'Ree broke the color barrier as the first black player in the NHL back in 1958. Read Willie's biography and log on to his blog via this link.
HITH VIII (Feb. 24 - 26, 2012) welcomes NHL Hockey is for Everyone teams and suburban teams from metro Detroit.  Check the Detroit Hockey News blog and calendar for a list of events.  Bring out the family and enjoy some good hockey.
