Christian Ciskal Memorial Mite Tournament

As we are approaching the 2024-2025 Hockey Season, it is time to start planning for your tournaments.   It is my hope that you would consider choosing the 1st Annual Christian Ciskal Memorial Mite Tournament hosted by the Town of Cheektowaga Youth and Recreation Department.

Christian Ciskal died on August 26, 2022, at the age of 14.  Christian died unexpectedly without cause or warning.  The 2024-2025 Hockey Season will be the first year for the Annual Christian Ciskal Memorial Tournament, and plan for this to be the area’s top tournament for years to come, promoting community, sportsmanship, teamwork, and most of all, having fun!

The goal of this tournament is to showcase what Christian loved so much the sport of hockey and team comradery.  All funds raised from this tournament will be donated by the Christian Ciskal Memorial Tournament, back into the community in forms of scholarships to help kids afford to play hockey, have proper equipment and enjoy the sport as much as he did.

We know that there are many choices for team tournaments, but we ask that you and your team please consider the Christian Ciskal Memorial Tournament this year.  For more information about the tournament please visit this link:   Christian Ciskal Memorial Tournament

Attached you will find a flyer for the tournament along with my contact information for those teams interested.  Please register early as we expect the tournament to fill up fast. 

Thank you,
