The Tournament

Show Summary

Tagline: Atom Hockey: Tantrums. Cheap Shots. Scoring. And that's just the parents.
Welcome to the small town of Briarside, home the Farqueson's Funeral Home Warriors - an underdog Atom team whose players are all heart and whose parents are all headaches. It turns out every kid's mom or dad is a potential "weakest link" - whether it be Barry McConnell, who shops his scoring-champ son Robbie to other teams, and counts his son's future pro salary against his investment in him or obsessive team sponser Aurora Farqueson, whose tomboy daughter Denim is living her mom's vicarious fantasy between the pipes for the Warriors.
The children, meanwhile, have their own issues to deal with.
The Tournament follows the Warriors, an Atom hockey team on the road to a prestigious tournament in Chateauguay, Quebec.
The Tournament breaks the Canadian national sport into its purest components, with wit and a looseness of style that speaks to everyone to ever skated on his or her ankles.moreless
