SYD TANGE TROPHY
The Syd Tange Trophy is currently awarded to the winning State Team of the under 18 National Tournament. The trophy is named after Sydney Edward Tange (1917–2005).
In 1969, the inaugural trophy for the national 17 years-and-under tournament was presented by three former NSW players and administrators - Ken Kennedy, Jim Mortimor and Mark Murphy.
It was their desire it be named after Syd Tange whose interest in junior development had spanned twenty years. In 1999, the state association published his work Ice Hockey: The NSW Ice Hockey Association Inc. - facts and events 1907-1999, a selective history of the New South Wales ice hockey association.
