The first ever Revelstoke Diva Cup Women’s Hockey Tournament brought in evenly matched teams from Whistler, Kamloops, Salmon Arm and Golden for three days of action last weekend.

Each team played four games, starting Friday evening, and wrapping up early Sunday afternoon. After several close and hard fought games, the Kamloops Coyotes went home winners and were awarded a set of Diva Cups for their effort.

The Whistler Dirty Girls finished second, Salmon Arm Wild Fire were third, Golden Girls fourth and Revelstoke Kodiaks finished in last place.

Everyone involved with the tournament, from participants to volunteers, enjoyed themselves during the games, and especially at the Saturday night dinner and curling at the Revelstoke Curling Club. The dinner, catered by Paramjit’s Kitchen, was a hit! Teams dressed in themed costumes like Where’s Waldo and Rock Stars.

There was a raffle, silent auction and 50/50 draw that brought in tonnes of support from many locals and tournament participants alike.

The Revelstoke Kodiaks could not have asked for a better kick-off to what we hope will become an annual tournament. None of what we accomplished this weekend could have been done without the help of the volunteers and local sponsors.

We hope only to make the tournament more fun each year and make it a bigger community event, as well as grow women’s hockey within Revelstoke.
