WHAT IS THE CAMP HASC HOCKEY CLASSIC?
The 4th 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, ALL-CITY, FRISCH, HANC, SAR, TEAM CANADA, RAMAZ and RAMBAM. The tournament has raised about $100,000 in each of its three 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, October 10th 2021. 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. We utilize various host locations throughout the morning and afternoon.
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.
WHAT ARE THE GAME RULES?
We primarily follow standard “MYHSHL” rules. For more details please see the “rules” tab.
WILL THERE BE FOOD?
Yes. We have an excellent catered dairy lunch, as well as a delicious meat dinner banquet. Additionally, our participants are provided with energy bars, gatorade and plenty of water to stay energized and hydrated throughout the games.
ARE FAMILIES INVITED TO ATTEND?
In the past we opened up the tournament to families and spectators. The entire tournament was a festive atmosphere with a few hundred people stopping by throughout the day. This year, due to the uncertainity of Covid policies at our hosts schools, we are waiting to determine who will be allowed and in what capacity.
