 March 12-14th 2021 Benefiting Beyond the Yellow Ribbon


With the cancellation of the True American Hockey Tournament, we have scrambled the fighter jets and are happy to bring to you a tournament of our own.

The BTYRI is hockey in its truest form. Invitees are all friends & one offs of our core hockey playing group, promoting a laid back, fun tournament atmosphere. 

It is a mixer style tournament so you will register individually and be placed on a team. Feel free to request to be placed on the same team as other players.

Please take time out from the fun of this weekend to thank your tournament organizers Landon Johnson and Jesse Bentrup, and be sure to tag any videos and photos with #BTYRInvitational.

Championship Sunday

Congratulations to Bentrup Agency - Brown!

Practice like you’ve never WON, Play like you’ve never LOST
