THE WA State Under- 13 Ice Hockey Team that trains at Xtreme Ice Arena in Mirrabooka won bronze at the IHA Ginsberg Championship 13 and Under competition.

Teams from all states and the Australian Capital Territory competed in the four-day championship in Sydney last month.

The inaugural national competition, named the President’s Cup for mixed players 13 years old and under, was held in 1983 in Adelaide, where the WA team won gold.

Phil Ginsberg donated the trophy and in 1998 it was named after him.

WA also won bronze in 2001 and silver in 2010.
