2024 Wichita Heartland Hockey Showdown ACHA Showcase

Hello,

My name is Patrick Forman, and I am the hockey director at the Wichita Ice Center.  Over the past two years, we have hosted an ACHA Showcase here in Wichita.  It was a good event, and it has brought the ACHA into the thoughts of our local hockey community.  With no college hockey in the Wichita area, the showcase is a great way for our young hockey players to see there is life after leaving our hockey program.

In 2024, we are hoping to expand upon the showcase and begin to have it potentially grow into a regional event for the ACHA.  Wichita is centrally located and has a lot to offer.  This year, we are partnering with Visit Wichita to enhance the showcase and make this more of a community experience.

The showcase will take place November 7-10th.  it will be a standalone event, instead of being combined with a youth hockey tournament.  This would give us more flexibility in scheduling the games and allow for more youth players and their families to attend.  We are hoping to expand from having only 4 M3 teams.  This year we would like to have 4 M3, 4 M1 or M2 teams, and 2 W1 or W2 teams.

If you have interested teams or wish to obtain further information, please feel free to contact me directly.

Thank you,

Patrick Forman
