21st Annual Woody Creek Distillers Stirling Cup

Woody Creek Distillers Stirling Cup 2022 Overview

For the 21st year and Aspen Junior Hockey's 50th Anniversary (AJH), we're continuing our unique two-part fundraising opportunity to support our youth while advancing the great game of hockey throughout the Roaring Fork Valley. The Stirling Cup weekend is a celebration for the City of Aspen and surrounding communities. Founded by longtime Aspen resident Jody Cooper in memory of her late husband, Stirling Cooper, the Stirling Cup event embodies the community to promote youth sports, foster new relationships, and signify community involvement. For the 21st annual event, AJH is proud to welcome some current and former Colorado Avalanche players along with special guests. As the beneficiary of this exciting weekend and an organization with a long history in the Roaring Fork Valley since 1972, AJH continues to grow a world-class hockey program that continually challenges our youth and why we yearly have successful teams. This season's Stirling Cup will have two-weekend events, the first being the September 10th weekend of the Fly Fishing and Golf event. The second over the December 10th weekend, AJH will host the Colorado Avalanche Alumni Charity game. AJH provides a channel through the sport of hockey. Through hockey, we develop strong character, perseverance, and passion for the game. Not only do we evolve as athletes, but we also work to build our youth to become contributing citizens in the community. Please, help us commemorate the legacy of Stirling Cooper and the long-standing heritage of youth hockey in Aspen by getting involved in the 2022 Stirling Cup and help take part in building the character of our community. As a non-profit organization, the monies raised help support the AJH scholarship program, meaning no athlete is left behind.
