Cragun’s Resort loves Brainerd hockey teams, their families and the coaches that come to this area for tournaments. We provide comfort, fun, close and convenient access to the arena and good times to make your Brainerd hockey tournament experience the best ever.

Cragun’s was honored to host the first ever Blue Ox Tournament last November for Bantam AA teams and they will be back again this year on November 14-16. Youth Hockey Hub produces this invite-only tournament that will feature the top teams from Minnesota. Fully sanctioned by USA Hockey, MN Hockey and Brainerd Hockey Association, The Blue Ox promises to be one of the season’s best Bantam Tournaments.

Cragun’s Resort will offer a pasta feed on Friday night for all of the teams. There will then be an opportunity for everyone to gather in the Sports Centre where the Youth Hockey Hub will announce the “Top 10 Players to Watch!” An 80’s rock band will get the program going and play for an hour.

The testimonial below sums up how families feel about choosing Cragun’s Resort for their Brainerd hockey tournament lodging:

“The service our team received at the buffet in the mornings was spectacular. The staff bent over backwards to make us feel welcome. The front desk personnel were always very friendly and helpful. Our hospitality room was VERY well maintained and we appreciated the use of the room any time we wanted throughout the entire weekend. The on-site coordinator was very helpful throughout the entire registration process and was very prompt in getting information to me regarding who still needed to register, when meals were, helping to set up a pizza party, getting us maps to the rink, etc. She was great to work with and we will not hesitate to use Cragun’s again in the future for team events. I would recommend Cragun’s to anyone needing team OR individual family accommodations.”
