We’re inviting you to take part in a unique and exciting event: Medicine Cup Charity Tournament, or for short, MCCT. MCCT is a 4 on 4 outdoor hockey tournament put on annually by students from the University of Alberta medical school to raise money for a local charity. This year we will be supporting Little Warriors, an organization committed to awareness, treatment, and prevention of child sexual abuse. If you haven’t participated before, MCCT is an opportunity to meet new people, hang out with friends, and play some great hockey.  There are divisions for men and women, both competitive and noncompetitive. In addition to the tournament, the weekend features a social night and tons of sweet raffle prizes to add to the fun!

About the Tournament

This will be the 16th annual MCCT tournament and it has grown every year with over $175,000 raised since the first event! It will take place February 7-9th, 2020 and is once again open to community members and students from all disciplines.

The registration can be done ONLINE HERE before January 29th, 2020 at 11:59PM. but if you want our newly designed MCCT shirts and swag bags, you need to register by January 12th, 2020 at 11:59pm. Team fees are $350 and can either be paid through e-transfer (mcctcoordinator@gmail.com) or collected at the team manager meeting on February 7th. As this is a 4 on 4 tournament, team sizes of about 11 people (6 forwards, 4 defence, goalie) are a good size to aim for.
