5/24/2021 Prague/Europe/Straka Update
Dear Prague Tournament Families and Straka Training Camps,
Thank you all for your patience through this very difficult year. We have been pivoting with our USA camps and sitting tight in the holding pattern with our partners in Prague waiting on all of the developing and fluid information concerning the pandemic/vaccines and European Travel in hopes to play in Prague this summer.
After speaking every two to three weeks throughout the year, we were given a final decision via our partner in Prague over the weekend. She had all of the ice times/rinks/ European teams to compete against/hotels/transfers and all parts of package reserved and ready for us for 2021 and now will move to 2022.
” EU just yesterday announced a statement to open third countries. However there are still too many questions and possible situations that I decided to make the final decision and postpone the tournament to 2022. I am very sorry but the risk would be too big for our group with so many unknowns. I would prefer the tourism is already ongoing than stepping into it at the start ourselves. Therefore we have plenty of European teams reserved to play Pro Ambitions over Christmas vacation tournament and business as usual for 2022.”
As we have been speaking to families individually…here are the options we have presented and will continue to present NOW with a new option…The Holiday Prague Tournament 2021.
Here are the options:
• Transfer to Prague Teams 2022( almost half of the players have already done this as they feared it would not be the full experience even if we were allowed to go in 2021)
• Use credits for any USA training(many folks have done this or even used a portion)
• Join us to play over the holidays 2021 details below or move to 2022 summer Prague Tournament Teams (age limitations have expanded due to covid19) or mixed bag of all of the options.

PRO AMBITIONS AT THE PRAGUE HOCKEY CUP
Pro Ambitions Hockey competed in the Czech Hockey Challenge Cup (CHCC) for the sixth time in August 2019. The competition was excellent and included teams from Russia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Latvia, Sweden, France and Canada. We are excited to return this summer with six Pro Ambitions Seal Teams. The 2021 CHCC will take place from August 2-August 8 in Prague, Czech Republic and will consist of one exhibition game before the tournament begins as well as five guaranteed games (15 minute stop time periods). Pro Ambitions will be fielding teams at the 2005/2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 levels for this year’s tournament. In addition to the hockey, all players, parents and guests participate in several scheduled events and sightseeing tours throughout the beautiful city of Prague. The official Tournament Party is one of the highlights of the trip and includes a catered dinner and refreshments capped off with a phenomenal fireworks display. A tour of a Crystal Factory and a Dinner Cruise on the Vltava River gives everyone an opportunity to enjoy the culture of the Czech Republic. There is ample time every day for anyone who wants to shop or sightsee on their own. Two meals are included daily and games are normally completed no later than 5:00pm which leaves plenty of time every day to enjoy Prague with your family and friends.
