Every February, Noëlville hosts the largest and longest running Family Hockey Tournament in Canada. Five years after the Noëlville Community Centre was built in 1972, the Noëlville Family Hockey Tournament was founded in 1977 by Claude Mayer, Gerry Brassard , and Denis Pitre . They started with 17 teams and have quickly grown to over 40 teams. This tournament survives to this day and has become a much-anticipated event in our community where families reunite, and friends of the extended family return 'home' from around the world to compete in this event which now hosts between 36 - 40 teams every year. Over the years, this tournament raised over $150,000 for local charities.
