Greater Pittsburgh Dek Hockey officials are organizing their first-ever summer tournament, set to kick off this weekend in Penn Hills.

Summer Jam 2013 will take place July 12 to 14 at the Olympic Swim & Health Club, located at 517 Twin Oak Drive. The tournament will feature four adult divisions including coed teams, three men's divisions and children's divisions, according to tournament organizer Chris Sinclair of Penn Hills.

“We go and play in tournaments all over the place: Philly, Niagara Falls and other places,” said Sinclair, who runs the youth leagues for Greater Pittsburgh Dek Hockey and also plays on an adult team. “Mark Madden has a tournament here in Pittsburgh, but we decided we wanted to host our own.”

In addition to the dek hockey action, the Olympic Swim & Health Club pool will be open to players and their families, and there will be a pig roast and a concession stand.

The tournament is open to the public.

“It will be a nice event for the whole weekend,” Sinclair said.
