More than a clash between two high school hockey powerhouse teams! The Veterans' Cup is also a way to recognize our local heroes and raise money for our Veterans. Proceeds to benefit the Mid-Michigan Honor Flight and the Grand Traverse Area Veteran Coalition.

Since the inaugural game in 2014, the Veterans' Cup has raised over $115,000 in support of the Mid-Michigan Honor Flight and GTAVC. Please join TC Central Trojan Hockey and Bay Reps Hockey for a touching and fun-filled evening of great hockey, tributes and fundraising. 
Join us for a unique hockey event at Centre Ice Arena as the Traverse City Girls Hockey program plays host to both girls high school and travel hockey teams. The 7 th  Annual TC Challenge / Girls Hockey Showcase matches games between high school vs. travel hockey teams in a weekend showcase bringing together a substantial group of girls hockey players.

These games provide a venue for teams across the State of Michigan to compete against squads they would not typically meet. The TC Challenge promotes quality hockey, good sportsmanship and player development. This year’s event pairs teams from the Michigan Metro Girls High School Hockey League (MMGHSHL) against the Michigan Amateur Hockey Association (MAHA) and provides an opportunity for the girls to be scouted by colleges and universities who are in attendance. The public is welcome to attend.
