Play On! is Canada's largest hockey tournament and sports festival, holding the Guinness record as largest street hockey tournament in the world.
The Play On! program operated nationally between 2004 and 2017, in partnership with the CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada for the last ten of those seasons. It was a series of individual events held annually from coast to coast across Canada, each offering a festival atmosphere with recreational and competitive street hockey tournament divisions for all genders, skill levels and ages.
