18th Annual Jordan Owens Initiation Tournament - March 22 - 25 2018
18th Annual Jordan Owens Memorial Tournament
This tournament is dedicated to the memory of a young boy named Jordan Owens. On July 8th, 1999 Jordan gave in to a long battle with cancer. He was a child who enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest. One of Jordan’s greatest loves was hockey. Jordan, in his own way, showed those watching, that there was so much more involved than just winning. He always demonstrated patience, understanding, and the true meaning of team sport. He carried this with him throughout his illness; often times too ill to do many things, but never really too ill to pick up a hockey stick. Jordan spent much of his last two years in and out of BC Children's Hospital.
The purpose of the tournament is two-fold. First, it is to demonstrate to our young athletes the meaning of sportsmanship, and to develop their love for the sport of hockey. The second purpose is to raise money for the BC Children’s Hospital. The Jordan Owens Memorial Tournament is proud to donate 100% of the proceeds to the BC Children's Hospital Foundation.
