This championship is organized by John Caputo Director of MyLeadPod.com, Harcourts Integrity & Caputo Activity Books.
The championship will see two coaches choose their teams, the best for the North (the Northern Stars) and the best for the South (the Southern Suns), and then coach them into battle to determine who, from the best of the best, is the best of the West!
In 2018 we are changing up the format to hold the event over a single weekend, a game on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th 5:30-7:30pm, and a 3 vs 3 sudden-death/penalty shoot-out if required to determine the winner in the case of a draw.
The event is sanctioned by the Australian Ice Hockey League and Ice Hockey Western Australia and is in support of ice sports in Australia and worthy charities.
Since 1968 Western Australians have raised over $268 million through Telethon for the kids of WA. The money raised has helped make significant advances in treating some of the life threatening diseases that face our children today. Telethon also provides equipment, resources and critical services for children across Western Australia.
In 2018, part proceeds of every UIHC ticket will be donated to Telethon.
