Toyota Challenge Press Release
Submitted By webmaster on Thursday, February 16, 2017
The Tomakomai Allstars will be guests of Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada Inc., the Waterloo Region and the Waterloo Minor Hockey Association Hockey Association from March 22 – 26.  Their stay will be very busy as the team will travel throughout South Western Ontario to learn about Canadian Culture and participate in two games against the Waterloo Minor Bantam AAA team.

Waterloo earned the right to travel to Japan in March of 2016 by winning the Toyota Challenge, a round robin competition between teams from Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge. The Tomakomai Allstars will play games March 24 and 25 in Waterloo at the Waterloo Recreation Complex marking their return trip to Canada. 

The Tomakomai Allstars is a team made up of the top High School players in Tomakomai, a Hockey-crazed City in Northern Japan.  The Tomakomai Allstars will play two games against the Waterloo Wolves, an exhibition game at 4:30pm on Friday March 24th and the Big Game at 10:00am on Saturday March 25th at the Waterloo Recreation Complex. Admission is free on Friday. A donation to the Waterloo Region Food Bank will get you into the game on Saturday.

The Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge Minor Hockey Associations are giving away a free hockey registration for the 2017-2018 Season to a lucky ticket holder in attendance on Saturday March 25th.  The fans will be treated to door prizes throughout the game.  During the 2nd intermission 3 players from the Waterloo, Kitchener and the Cambridge Peewee AAA teams will compete in a shootout against the Minor Bantam goalies from both Waterloo and Tomakomai Japan.  During the 2017-18 season Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge will compete in a home and home round robin to determine who will travel to Japan in March of 2018.

March 2017 will mark the 10th time a Japanese team has visited the Waterloo Region
