By Amy Moritz

Registration is now open for the 13th annual Street HockeyFest scheduled to be held Aug. 24. The event is sponsored by the Buffalo Sabres.

Games begin at 9 a.m. with each team guaranteed at least three games in the one-day tournament. With construction around First Niagara Center, the games will be played one block east of the arena, on surface parking lots between Mississippi and Columbia Streets.

The tournament is open to boys and girls 17. Registration per five-player team is $125 per team and includes a t-shirt and hat. Free parking will be available for participants and spectators at the First Niagara Center ramp.

Games are played three-on-three plus a goaltender with one optional substitute. Players must bring their own equipment (sneakers, sticks, gloves) and goaltender equipment is mandatory.
