PUCCS Charity Hockey Tournament with appearances by reps from Buffalo Beauts

Starting on June 13, 2015, Program for Understanding Childhood Concussion and Stroke (PUCCS) will be hosting a Charity Hockey Tournament at HarborCenter rinks. The tournament consists of sixteen adult teams (2 divisions – competitive and recreational) that will be battling it out to reach the championship game, which is scheduled to take place on Sunday, June 14. Games will be played from 8am to 2pm each day.

During the tournament, representatives from Buffalo Beauts, Buffalo’s new Professional Women’s Hockey Team (see Facebook), will be on hand during at the Partner Fair, scheduled to take place on Saturday from 9am to 2pm. The women’s professional hockey team is one of four teams that makes up the newly founded National Women’s Hockey League.

Over 3 million people are inflicted with sports related concussions each year.

Proceeds from this year’s event will go toward:
• bringing baseline testing to student athletes that are demographically disadvantaged;
• working with leadership of youth development camps to include concussion education into their program modules; and
• collaborating with multidisciplinary health care professionals to cross train on concussion assessment and appropriate treatment protocols.

PUCCS is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. For more information on the tournament and PUCCS, visit www.puccs.org or contact PUCCS at 716-320-1HIT
