Saratoga State Park, NY.
Return to Outdoor Pucks, Friends, Beers.
Outdoor Hockey returns to Saratoga, January 26-28, 2024 the way it's supposed to be enjoyed: Outdoors, cold beers, rink side fire pits and most of all, played in front of family and friends. Re-branded for 2024, as the Jerry Kemp Pro Shop Classic, the event will honor, Kemp, a regional hockey ICON who recently passed (LINK shortly). The last version of this event in 2020 (Pre-COVID / also location in Saratoga State Park) saw 900+ players, skating on 100 + teams, 350 + games played within 2 divisions over 3 days as regional teams from neighboring states came in for this co-ed hockey experience.
The upcoming 2024 event has slight changes while more games have been added as well as better player perks.
When entering your team or jumping in as a 'free agent" you should solidify a spot quickly as this event is being capped at 90 teams within 3 divisions. We look forward to seeing returning players, new teams as well as family spectators under the Pine trees at this beautiful location, all for the love of the game. Lets Go!
