Hong Kong Inline Hockey League – U12 Mini Tournament
King’s Park, HONG KONG – March 12th & 13th, 2021
On March 12th and 13th, the Hong Kong Federation of Roller Sports hosted a U12 roller hockey mini tournament that was managed by Powerplay Sports & Entertainment. Held at the YMCA in King’s Park, the event  was designed to kick start youth hockey after Hong Kong’s 4th wave of COVID-19, and promote kids inline hockey in Hong Kong.

5 local teams from various clubs competed in a fun and spirited tournament: Imposters, Nucks Jr., Wheels, Flames and Roll Over. The Imposters team walked away tournament champions as they beat Nucks Jr. in a close fought and exciting final.

This mini tournament is a precursor to a potential youth league in the future, with many attending players showing their passion and willingness to play more inline hockey in Hong Kong. We thank all the players, coaches, parents, staff and referees for making the tournament a success. Special thanks go to the Hong Kong Federation of Roller Sports, KPCC, Hockey Life HK and Wheel Hub Asia for their support.

South China Ice Hockey League (SCIHL)
The SCIHL finally resumed play after 3 months off, and with the teams approaching the playoffs, it will be a hard fought race to compete for the cup this year. With only 4 out of the 6 teams making the playoffs, and 4 points separating 2nd to 5th place in the standings with two games to go in the regular season, things will undoubtedly come down to the wire yet again. Top team InetAsia look on to see who they will be facing as they ride their 5 game winning streak into a guaranteed playoff spot. For more details, visit www.SCIHL.com.

China Ice Hockey League (CIHL)
Hong Kong’s premier league resumed play with the regular season currently dominated by the unstoppable Macau Aces. The Aces are yet to lose in regulation after 11 games, posting a 9-0-2 record on their way to what they hope is a record breaking season. New arrival Jesse Lussier and old hand Whitney Olsen are blazing the trail for the Aces, as they sit 1st and 2nd in league scoring.
