Golden Oldies Hockey first took to the field back in 1983 as a way for “older” (35+) players to keep playing the sport they love. In fact, the second Golden Oldies World Hockey Festival was held in Victoria in 1985. From September 15-22, 2019, the 19th Golden Oldies event will bring over 60 teams from around the world to Vancouver for an amazing week of on-field fun and off-field social events and activities. Get a team together and register now for one of the most memorable hockey events you’ll ever play in!
