This year, 29 hockey teams (over 300 players in total) will be competing in tournaments during the 2014 Phoenix Winter Carnival in Headingley from Feb. 10 to 16.

"It’s going to be busy," Headingley Phoenix Recreation Association president Sandra Miller said.

Tournaments are being held for five- and six-year-olds and seven- and eight-year-olds, with local and Winnipeg teams signed up. The action takes place on two outdoor rinks at the Phoenix Community Centre at 153 Seekings St.

"We’ve gained a good reputation," Miller said, adding that teams start signing up as soon as they can.

In addition to the hockey games, the Winter Carnival includes a barbecue, bonfire and fireworks on the evening of Fri., Feb. 14. Over the weekend, there will be face painting and other children’s activities, a silent auction and hot meals available in the Hockey Hutch located between the outdoor rinks.

Miller said there will also be a small skating rink and a toboggan run open for family fun.

Last year about 300 people attended the Friday evening activities, Miller said, and she’s hoping for a similar turnout this year. The weather won’t affect the outdoor events that are planned.

All money raised at the Carnival is used for programming at the centre.

"This is where the uniforms and sporting equipment come from," she said.
