For the 2nd year, AHAI will be sending the Pee Wee Illinois State champions from the Tier II AA Division as well as a second Pee Wee Tier II team to Sun Prairie, Wisconsin to face off against the State Champions from around the Midwest. Last year Illinois was represented by the Deerfield Falcons and the Chicago Huskies. State Champions from Wisconsin, North Dakota, Minnesota, Missouri, Michigan are invited and are expected to participate in this invitational tournament March 27 through 29, 2015.
The goal of the tournament is to offer a USA Hockey National Tournament atmosphere and a competitive environment without extensive travel and loss of school days. Each team will play a minimum of three games in a Round Robin format. Further information regarding the tournament will be sent to the clubs through the State Tournament Committee in the following weeks.
