What a powerful and fun weekend.
I want to thank all of the families that took part in the Wyatt Winfield 3v3 Tournament held in Helena this past weekend, it was truly a huge moment in NA Prep history.
Coaches Marc Troyer, Beau Hughes, Phil Richardson, Jeff Dennehy thank you for making this event what it was.
Thank you, parents, for all of the support and positive energy you provided from the stands and all around the arena.
Thank you, Jera Sitton, Cody McCarthy, and Kelly Marrinan for working uniform distribution.
A big thank you to the Winfield family for providing this opportunity for our hockey community.
Last but not least, thanks to all of the players that played their hearts out this past weekend, it is amazing when you see the amount of growth a player can have in such a short time. You guys were amazing.
It was truly astonishing to see ALL of the NA Prep teams make it to post tournament play. NA Prep 3v3 Highlights from this past weekend.

Thank you all for being part of this NA Prep event, your commitment and support are why we have had the ability to reach over 320 players statewide; in our short two years of operation. We appreciate the support of our mission to develop players and grow this game in Montana.
Our video from this weekend's past event is soon to follow, I'm still attempting to recuperate, vocally, mentally and physically (and my toes are still thawing out).
Reminder: Our final evaluation/Try-out for our spring program is this weekend, in Butte, we would love to see you all there.
