Message from the President

It is with great enthusiasm that all the members of the Organizing Committee are working on the 13th edition of the McDonalds Bantam Hockey Tournament in Rivière-du-Loup, which will be held from November 25 to 28, 2021.

Once again this year, we expect to receive a maximum number of teams and close to 1,000 hockey players, coaches and chaperones from all over Quebec. They will converge to Rivière-du-Loup to compete and win the honors of this prestigious tournament and in order to have the pleasure of lifting the “McDonalds Cup”.

For a few years now and to the great pleasure of our visitors, Hockey Rivière-du-Loup has abolished the entrance fee for our tournament and replaced it with a one-time fee paid by each team. Thus, everyone who will come to the McDonalds Provincial Bantam Hockey Tournament in Rivière-du-Loup will no longer have to pay an entrance fee to attend the games. Coaches and players will also no longer have to wear wristbands.

Finally, thanks to the hard work of our volunteers, more than 350 young hockey players from Rivière-du-Loup benefit from the event every year because all the profits generated by the McDonalds Provincial Bantam Hockey Tournament are returned to Hockey Rivière-du-Loup. On behalf of all the young hockey players of Rivière-du-Loup, I would like to sincerely thank the artisans, financial partners and volunteers who make this 13th edition possible.

I would also like to take this opportunity to wish all the teams who will participate in our tournament a great stay in Rivière-du-Loup and the best of luck.
