PrintGeneral Information
Welcome to the Ross Young tournament page! please join us in attending the 30TH annual Ross Young Tournament.  Ross young was an icon of Tiverton, he grew up in and was a long time resident of Tiverton where he owned and operated a beef farm and a school bus business. Later in life he took up the hobby of showing beautiful Belgians horses and showed at many of the local and sometimes larger fairs including the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto, the Western Fair in London and the Detroit International State Fair. That’s quite an accomplishment.

Ross was very instrumental in raising funds for the Tiverton arena. So dedicated was he that he purchased a truck for fund raising and sold tickets for a draw. Supporting the Tiverton Minor Hockey team was a passion of his and he went to great lengths to keep it going.

The first hockey tournament held in Tiverton was on natural ice and Young was quite involved in its success.  Ross also spent many hours doing volunteer work around the arena as there was no manager back in those days. Everything was done by volunteers. But when there was finally artificial ice installed, he was there and was on the Minor Sports committee. the Young family continues to keep his love of minor sports. we look forward to seeing you at the Rink!
