The 25th Anniversary of the Vince Ryan Memorial Scholarship Hockey Tournament will be held March 20th-23rd, 2014. This tournament is the largest recreational adult hockey tournaments of its kind!
The tournament sprouted from the established Devco Old-timers Hockey League. The Devco League, formed in 1983, began with just 4 teams. Its purpose was to give coal miners aged 35 and older a chance to get together on Sunday evening to play some hockey. In 1989, they decided to hold a tournament to benefit the local community and the Vince Ryan Tournament was born.
