After two years, Algonquin Boys Hockey Team is resuming its annual fundraiser that’s a fall highlight for many kids in Southborough and Northborough.
1st-8th graders are invited to form teams and come out to play in the tournament. The game doesn’t involve pucks. Instead, kids are challenged to throw, catch, and dodge.
The Dodgeball Tournament will take place on Saturday, November 19th.
Players register as a team of 8-10 players at $100 per team.* Teams are divided by age groups with playoffs. (Each team is guaranteed at least three games.)
Every year, teams are encouraged to get creative with their team t-shirts. Prizes are awarded for the best design.
Other fun includes raffles and concessions. All proceeds benefit the team.
The tournament will again be held in the Algonquin Regional High School gym. The time slots are:
- Grades 1 & 2 – 9:00 – 11:00 am
- Grade 3 & 4 – 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
- Grades 5 & 6 – 1:00 – 3:00 pm
- Grades 7 & 8 – 3:00 – 6:00 pm
Registration and completed payments are due by Friday, November 11th. (Parent waivers must also be submitted by that date.)**

At the last fundraiser (in 2019), Kosovsky M Photography captured some great action shots for the page with teams happily posing and teamwear to smile about:
The team tried to bring the tournament back last fall. Unfortunately, spiking Covid cases interfered. The tournament was postponed, then eventually cancelled.
*Only 8 team members are allowed to play in each game, but additional players can be rotated in/out between games.
