Hockey Song by Stompin Tom Connors (copyright 1973)


The demand for Nashville has been growing by leaps and bounds over the past five years.  Its grown so much that there are no hotel rooms available for our traditional second weekend.  As a result, we had to merge the March 13-15 weekend with the March 6-8 weekend.  We will host mite, squirt, peewee, and bantams at the House Allstar, B, A, and AA levels this year on March 6-8.  There will be no midget divisions this year for the Country & Westeren Showdown.  Midgets if you are looking for our tournament check out our Capital Showdown in Maryland/Washington DC the same weekend March 6-8.  As a result of this change and merged dates the tournament will fill quickly, so we encourage all teams to apply before the upcoming December 15th deadline.  We are sadden by this change in events and sincerely apologize for having to bring this to your attention.

The dates below for each tournament are targeted deadlines.  Given the time crunch in January and February to prepare for the Country & Western Showdown and Capital Showdown it is possible that the dates will slighthly changed as we near closer to the actual dates.
