The Battle of Boston ('BoB') is an elite hockey tournament series. There are five (5) events in the series for ages ranging from 1999 to 2007 birth years, including women’s u8-u19. The goal for our tournaments is to provide elite players with a first-class experience with respect to competition level & exposure.
The Battle of Boston is limited to the top 40 teams for each tournament in an effort to keep competition at its absolute highest and not water down the level of competition.
Unlike other tournaments that allow organization to enter 3-6 teams at each age level, the Battle of Boston limits organizations to two (2) entries per age level. While many organizations are playing in multiple tournaments held on the same weekends, their top talent in each division will only be showcased in the Battle of Boston. The BoB has screened each team and is only allowing the top teams into the series, while the lower level teams will play in other tournaments.
Bill Terski, USA Director of Sales for CCM, says CCM is pleased to be a sponsor of the Battle of Boston. This tournament is run by a great organization and will attract the top talent into the Boston area. The ability to provide CCM gear to this talented group of players, and talk to them about the latest CCM gear, is an exciting opportunity for our brand.
In its first year, CCM Hockey has recognized the talent that will be attending the Battle of Boston showcase, and will be fully sponsoring the event. Each coach will receive a coaching kit, including backpack and gift card to local favorite restaurant, Mick Morgan’s. In addition--during the Spring Battle, Senior Battle and Junior Battles--for all the playoff rounds, both teams will be able to elect Players of the Game. These players will be awarded new CCM hockey sticks valued at $250. For the tournament MVP, the player chosen will be given a pair of custom made CCM Jet Speed skates, valued at $900.
