Welcome to Hockey 4 Life
We are Hockey 4 Life, a non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organization in South Bend, Indiana. We’re excited to celebrate our 10th year in what we hope is our best year yet! We are looking for donations of any kind to build our organization and make it bigger and better than ever.
This site is intended to give some background on Hockey 4 Life, our cause, and also all participants the ability to signup and pay for the tournament. Due to the request, we’ve also added the ability to add an additional, or standalone, donation. We’re also very proud to announce the Hockey 4 Life Scholarship Fund. We’ll be selecting one Student-Athlete, who participates in the South Bend High School Hockey League, who exemplifies our standards in their daily lives.
The player payments cover the costs of the Ice Time, Referees, Security and various other things required to put the tournament on. Roughly 95% of the signup fees are consumed in the tournament costs. All additional costs go directly to the charitable donations. We rely heavily on outside contributions, funding and donations, in order to raise the donations that we do. We’ve added locations on this site to allow you to make a donation.
Saturday – 3:30-4:30pm
We will be having a Sled Hockey exhibitions game. Anyone can participate, if interested please let us know.
We are also always looking for donations! Here is a little incentive, the team that brings in the most donations will get a locker room for the weekend.
Remember this is all for Charity so bring lots of money because we have some great silent auction and raffle stuff this year (even Red Wings stuff). All silent action and raffles will be picked Saturday Night after the last game about 9:45 – 10:00. We will also be announcing our high school hockey Scholarship winner and presenting them with a check, as well as a couple of award that we will also be presenting after the game.
I hope everyone is ready for a good time and good food!
Again this is all for charity and our charities this year are Hospice, Hope Ministries, Lighthouse Families First Foundation and River City Challenged Athletics Groups – Sled Hockey.
We’re proud to announce the Hockey 4 Life 2016 Tournament. We’re keeping with the same format we’ve used in the past, two Divisions, four Teams per Division, 10 Skaters a team with a goalie. We’re also maintaining our Draft style approach as that keeps things fun and entertaining.

These are the latest things happening here at Hockey 4 Life. The upcoming tournament, with Draft, are the two big ticket items.
