Stick it to Cancer 2017

Stick it to Cancer is BACK! SAVE THE DATE

Following a successful launch in 2016 Stick it to Cancer is back and it will be even bigger and better! Stick it to Cancer’ (SITC) is a fun, fancy dress themed hockey tournament designed to raise funds for Maggie’s. SITC will offer hockey teams the opportunity to participate in a Round Robin tournament. In addition to the festival there will be an after party for all participants and their supporters where awards will be presented.

The hockey festival will take place at Edinburgh Accies pitches on East Fettes Avenue. The STICK IT TO CANCER after party will take place at Harry’s Bar at Randolph Place in Edinburgh.

Saturday 1st July 2017. Registration is 9.00 – 9.30am with the first fixtures starting at 10.00am. The tournament will run to 5.00pm. The after party will start at 7.30pm with awards being announced at 8.30pm.

What is different this year?
After last year’s event we asked for feedback on how we can improve for 2017. For the tournament this year we have adapted the format so you will have slightly fewer games allowing for more time to socialise. We will also provide clarity over the D to make the job of umpiring easier. For the after party we have chosen a more central venue in the centre of town with a DJ and light catering to help with the celebrations!

Who can play?
Anyone aged 14+. Each team can have a maximum of 10 registered players. This is a mixed tournament for all abilities. Please note anyone aged below 18 will not be able to attend the evening celebration. Sorry!
