For many adult hockey players, the prospect of taking a weekend away as a vacation to play hockey seems like a great idea.
For Jim Notman, it was simply natural to combine the two.
Notman, the president of Global Sports Vacations and tournament host, says that he offers vacation packages including hockey tournaments in some of the most popular vacation spots in North America, including Las Vegas, Daytona Beach and Atlantic City.
"They’re well-known vacation spots," Notman said. "Hockey’s only part of the reason that people come. They’ve got to enjoy a vacation out of it too."
He says he has different age and skill divisions, ranging from 21 and up to 50 and up, and from D-league players up to A-league
Regardless of age and skill level, Notman says he makes sure that there are plenty of fun off-ice activities for all players to participate in.
"In Nashville, we include tickets to the Wildhorse Saloon, for example. In Daytona Beach, we have a beach party."
