Our Player Stories

If you enjoy hockey, enjoy warm weather and beautiful beaches then the Florida Palms Hockey Tournament is the place to be. Golf and meeting good friends for life is the bonus.


Ed Evans Botwood Pirates, Newfoundland, Canada

Calgary Phantoms have been coming to the best hockey Tournament in the world for the last 28 years. We have in the past been to tournaments in Hawaii, Mexico City, Las Vegas, Santa Rosa-CA, Victoria – BC and the Florida Palms is the number ONE Tournament. The commraderie with the the players from the other teams is something we look forward to each year.

The Florida Palms is so popular with our players, for the past 6 years we now enter two Calgary Phantoms teams! See you at the Florida Palms.

We have been participating in the Florida Palms Hockey Tournament 4 of the 5 last years, and we will continue to come back!

A well-organized tournament thanks to Guy and his staff, great hospitality, competitive hockey and great friends would be a brief summary of this event.

We have brought not only hockey players, but wives, girlfriends, kids- all are having the greatest time on and off the ice.

Great accommodation facilities, fantastic beach and perfect surroundings for a active holiday.

Our best recommendations for this awesome tournament.

I am a member of the MONCTON slowpokes hockey team since 2008 and have participated in this tournament 5 times.It is a well-run tournament by a great group of people that show everyone a fantastic time, whether it’s at the pool, beach or the hotel, maybe it’s at the Golf Tournament or the rink, the fun never stops and the laughter is too much to bear sometimes.

The facilities always are great and the organizing committee always ensures that you are taken care of.

I cannot say enough about this event as I have even brought another team I play for ( Moncton Dark horses ) to this event. I have and will always promote this tournament to everyone I meet.

Thanks again to Guy, Peter and the rest of the gang, can’t wait till 2016 when the Dark horses return for their second adventure.

Dear Guy and Pete,

It is with great pleasure Oslo Oilers from Norway gives you best possible feedback for your hard work and dedication in the tournament, and giving us a great time at our second participation.

We are during many years traveled around North America and Europe participated in different hockey tournaments, but no one beat you in hospitality and «personal touch» of the event. The best of luck for the coming tournaments.

Best hockey-regards


Svein Tangen, Coach/Captain Oslo Oilers

Since we first entered the Macomb Oldtimers (now Duffy’s Oldtimers) in 1995(20 consecutive years and running), the Florida Palms Tournament has morphed for us into much more than a Hockey Tournament.

Florida Palms is an annual vacation of our team that includes players, wives, friends, and relatives to the sun soaked beaches of St. Petersburg.

For us from the Midwest, Florida Palms is a rite of Spring to warm weather and good riddance to winter.

The Florida Palms is a very player/customer friendly event run by Guy and his great support staff.

The hockey at Florida Palms is always competitive with a flair for the international starting with our friends from Canada to newer opponents from Norway, and other parts of the world.

Finally, Florida Palms is the launching pad for developing a lifetime worth of friends and memories through hockey!

An excellent well-run tournament by a group of guys second to none in the tournament business!
