WHAT IS THE CAMP HASC HOCKEY CLASSIC?
The 3rd Annual Camp HASC Classic is a highly anticipated yearly floor hockey tournament, benefiting the special campers of Camp HASC. Founded in 2017, by Gilad Rosenberg and Sam Schertz, the HASC Hockey Classic is comprised of 12 teams with over 150 competitors, representing the all-star alumni of the following schools: TABC, DRS, HAFTR, KUSHNER, MTA, FLATBUSH, FRISCH, HANC, SAR, TEAM CANADA, RAMAZ and RAMBAM. The tournament has raised $100,000 in each of its two years, to benefit Camp HASC.
WHAT IS CAMP HASC?
For more than forty years, Camp HASC has served the Jewish community as the premier summer program for children and adults with special needs, intellectual and physical disabilities.
Camp HASC is unique in its ability to meet the complex personal, social, therapeutic and medical needs of our very special campers, who enjoy a seven week sleep-away camp experience, just like many of their siblings and friends.
WHAT IS THE TOURNAMENT DATE?
The tournament is scheduled to take place all day Sunday, September 15th 2019. There will be round-robin games in the morning, with tiered, tournament style play beginning at around noon.
WHERE WILL THE TOURNAMENT TAKE PLACE?
The tournament takes place in Teaneck, NJ. In the morning we utilize the gyms at TABC, Maayanot and Yeshivat Noam, and as the day progresses we consolidate all our games into the primary TABC and Maayanot locations.
HOW WILL THE TOURNAMENT WORK?
In the morning, all participating teams will compete in one of 4 round-robin divisions and play 2 games to be seeded. Based off those games the top 2 teams from each division will advance into Tier-1 and the 3rd place team will advance to Tier-2. Each tier will then compete in a single elimination playoff. For those who lose during the playoffs, consolation games will be offered.
