SF will be hosting PCC's in conjunction with the Club Puck (San Jose) on OCTOBER 20-21. The tournament will be held at the Los Gatos High School, located just outside of San Jose. It is an outdoor venue with minimal shade so don't forget your sunscreen! Here are the details:
We are fortunate to have CanAm gear be the official sponsor of PCC's 2012. They will have a table set up during the tournament for people to try-out and purchase new gear. Please thank Steve Kars for his generosity!
We will be sticking with PCC's tradition and having both an open and a mixed division. All mixed teams must but be composed of both men and women. During play a team must have have players of each gender in the water with a minimum of two women and 2 men.
**Important - If you would like to play on a team in each division we can workout a special rate for the second team. Please contact Amy for more information. This is to help encourage our A level players to support their clubs in the mixed division while still getting the A level hockey they crave!

Level 1 - Referee Course
It will be held on the Friday (Oct 19) from 3-7pm, location is TBD. Everyone can use a little refresher on the rules and if you've never taken a level 1 this is a great opportunity to do so. Please let Amy know if you would be interested in attending or sign up here
Driving: From the 101 exit at 880 and continue on to highway 17, if you are coming from the 280 take the exit for highway 17.
The pool is at the back of Los Gatos High School, which you can find on Google Maps. Or follow these irections from Brigit:
Take Hwy 17 south towards Los Gatos
Take the E Los Gatos exit, and head E on Hwy 9/ Saratoga Los Gatos Rd.
At the dead end, take a right onto Los Gatos Rd.
Here's where you have to pay attention! Directions to LGHS will take you to the front of the school, and it'll take you much longer to find the pool. Do this instead:
Take a right onto Pleasant St (it's at a stop sign before the school), go to the end
Take a left onto New York Ave and start looking to your left for parking.
The pool is behind the gym behind a fence--- you should see the diving boards from the parking lot.
