The 11th annual Anthony Ford Pond Hockey Classic
Spring Lake Park
North Mankato, Minnesota
In the State of Hockey, taking it outdoors and playing on a frozen lake is the ultimate grass roots experience that needs to be included in your hockey schedule this year. The AF99 Pond Hockey Classic is an annual tradition that will create memories of a lifetime. Spring Lake Park sits just below the bluff in beautiful lower North Mankato and is a wonderful setting for pond hockey.
The Anthony Ford Pond Hockey Classic takes place on Saturday, January 26, 2019 (Adult play) and Sunday, January 27, 2019 (Youth play). We feature 12 expanded NiceRinks on a great pond that is sheltered from the wind.
This is not a USA Hockey or Minnesota Hockey sanctioned event.
The event is free to the public and includes viewing from the pier, a sledding hill for kids, hospitality area serving food and refreshments including beer and wine, warming houses and plenty of parking. Teams of all levels are welcome.
