Eight teams competed in the 10th Annual Juneau Jamboree Women’s Hockey Tournament at Treadwell Ice Arena. Games were played Friday afternoon, all day Saturday and Sunday morning. Tournament players register as individuals and then are put onto teams of mixed abilities. This year players came from Juneau, Douglas, Montana, Fairbanks, Homer, Hope and Anchorage. Games were played Round Robin style, with no championship of any sort. All teams played 4 games, so not all teams faced each other.
In the history of the tournament nearly 300 individuals have participated and 90 or so have come from out of town.
According to organizer and player Carrie Bohan, the tournament originated after 10 Juneau women traveled to Haines Junction for a similar tournament in February of 2004. At that time, the Treadwell Arena was brand new and many of the ladies who were playing hockey in Juneau were just learning and really weren’t ready for a competitive tournament. Over the years, Juneau women have developed friendships with players in Alaska, Montana and the Yukon and routinely travel to tournaments in those locations. Some have even formed teams with ladies from those locations and traveled to tournaments in places like Las Vegas.
