For the past fifty-one years, WSC and The Merritton Athletic Association located in St. Catherine’s, Ontario have operated a Peewee and Bantam level exchange tournament (alternating as hosts).  This is a truly remarkable event and one of the oldest American/Canadian hockey exchanges between two clubs in North America.
