The Ducks today announced a partnership with the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) and THE RINKS – Huntington Beach Inline to bring the 2010 High School Inline Hockey Nationals to Southern California from May 29-31. The 2010 High School Inline Hockey Nationals will precede the 2010 AAU Junior Olympics, which will also be held at Huntington Beach Inline from July 1-11.
“We’re thrilled host the country’s top high school inline teams at THE RINKS – Huntington Beach Inline later this month,” said Huntington Beach Inline General Manager Ken Murchison. “The 2010 Nationals and Junior Olympics are two great events that will continue to help the growth of hockey in Southern California.”
High school varsity, junior varsity and middle school teams will be eligible to enter the 2010 High School Inline Nationals, which holds an entry deadline of Friday, May 15. A pool play system will be used for the tournament and each team will be guaranteed a minimum of four games. All participating teams will be seeded into tiers following pool play. Teams will consist of players in sixth through eighth grade for middle school and ninth through twelfth grade levels for high school divisions. Any team representing a high school or middle school, public or private, is eligible to enter at The-Rinks.com/huntingtonbeachinline.
