Palm Springs, Calif. – Monday, December 1, 2014 – With glowing tans and smiles, 9,000 hockey heads packed their shorts, sticks and shin guards into crammed suitcases. The 2014 National Hockey Festival drew athletes, coaches and umpires from all regions of the country and globe to share more than just a meal of turkey but also in competition. Even more fun was had at this year’s event with a few special notes including Netherlands native and USWNT Assistant Coach Janneke Schopman celebrated her first Thanksgiving in the United States at this Festival. Also during Festival, an evening exhibition match took place against the USMNT athletes and college coaches. Although Team USA left victorious, a crowd of 800-plus consumed premier hockey and enjoyed meeting the athletes at the end of the game. Another exciting feature of the tournament took place during our medal ceremony where the USMNT and USWNT athletes as well as Schopman made guest appearances and honored our 2014 Festival champions with their awards.
