An annual event at the end of December, four top college hockey teams square off and skate into Germain Arena for the Florida College Classic Hockey Tournament. Cornell University is the mainstay of the tournament since it began in 2000, thanks to former Cornell hockey player and partner at Germain Arena, Craig Brush. The 2016 edition scheduled for Wednesday, December 28th and Thursday, December 29th includes Colorado College, Northern Michigan, Merrimack College and my own alma mater, Cornell University. Go Big Red!
Games are typically at 4pm and 7:30pm on the first day of the tournament with the consolation and championship games being on the following day at the same times. Great college hockey, very affordable prices and an excellent venue at Germain Arena.
Where else can you go to the beach or play golf during the day, watch live ice hockey, and then go to dinner outside in your shorts? Tickets available at the door.
