Needham Youth Hockey has hosted this annual tournament for Tier II, III, and IV level teams for over 30 years. We have had teams from Canada, Colorado, New Jersey, New York, California, and throughout New England play in this tournament over the years. Our goal is to provide a high quality tournament by offering the right level of competition for all participants. The convenience of being so close to Boston with many local attractions and amenities make the experience enjoyable for the entire family. The tournament is named in honor of our founder Frank Bell Jr. Frank was an outstanding hockey player winning State Championships with Needham High School in 1944 and 1946 and then going on to play hockey at Northeastern. Frank was a director and active coach/teacher in Needham Youth Hockey for over 25 years.
