The Hong Kong Amateur Hockey Club was invited to send team to participate in Harbin’s International Amateur Ice Hockey Tournament, on the 1st of this month for four days during the "26th Annual Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival”. The tournament was organized by The Harbin Ice Hockey Association and The Harbin Police Ice Hockey Club. There were teams from Beijing, Shanghai, Shenyang, Dalian, Hong Kong and the host, Harbin. The HKAHC team also had the privilege of playing against the Future Star Team of the Chinese National Women – The Harbin Youth Girl Team. We all learned a lot from playing against the girls and we hope to have further development with their team to promote the sport locally.

The Hong Kong Academy of Ice Hockey sponsored training, airfare and accommodation for this event for all players involved. Chairman of the HKAHC, Thomas Wu, Director of the HKAHC Laputa Poon and Club Council Member Henry Lau lead the team of 19 players to Harbin. Within these 30 years, this winter has been the harshest for Harbin. Although temperatures reached -30 degrees Celsius and lower, the HKAHC team learned a lot from playing with more experienced teams from abroad.

The Vice Governor of Heilongjiang Province Mr. Sun Yao hosted a dinner in honor of the visiting HKAHC team. At the dinner, Mr Sun said that the Province would encourage, support and collaborate with HKAHC to further promote and develop the sport of ice hockey in both territories.

Players from the HKAHC had a chance to tour the internationally renowned Harbin Ice and Snow World. Here the team was subjected temperatures below 30 degrees Celsius but were overjoyed by the monumental ice sculptures that were created by the Harbin Ice and Snow World builders.

The HKAHC would like to thank all the teams that participated in the tournament and for the Harbin Police Ice Hockey Club’s hospitality and we hope to be able to participate in the tournament again in near future.
