EL SEGUNDO, CA - The Los Angeles Jr. Kings have announced the field and schedule for their upcoming Labor Day Weekend Hockey Fest Tournament, which will run from Aug. 29-Sept. 1 at Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, Calif.

Twenty-eight teams from Arizona, Northern and Southern California and Nevada will compete in six divisions: Bantam AA, Pee Wee A, Squirt A, BB and B and Mite Cross Ice.

“This is an ideal weekend to help celebrate the beginning of another spirited hockey season,” tournament director Brian McDonough said of the third annual event, noting its growth from 23 teams last year. “We couldn’t be happier to welcome so many great programs from California, as well as a couple from outside the state, for what promises to be a competitive and entertaining weekend of hockey.”

Division champions will be awarded a banner and trophy, and all players on the championship teams will receive medals. Players on the runner-up teams in each division will also receive medals.

The Labor Day Weekend Hockey Fest Tournament is part of the Jr. Kings’ Tinseltown Tournament Series. Pre-registration is now open for the Series’ remaining three events of the 2014-15 season: the Thanksgiving Extravaganza (Nov. 27-30), Presidents’ Day Challenge (Feb. 13-16, 2015) and Carmen Starr Memorial Day Invitational (May 22-25, 2015).
