The Tom Cross Hockey Tournament is painted into action in this local history mural about Beverly youth sports teams. Tom and Milly Cross and Kathy Marson grew the tournament to involve the Mites kid's hockey group, eventually to 24 teams.
Two youth sports murals face off from each other between the entrance of the Rink Building at the Beverly Heights Community Leage. These Edmonton rinks have hosted hockey games and figure skaters for decades, which are celebrated in the mural.

This winter youth sports mural depicts the Tom Cross Hockey Tournament and figure skaters, in the Edmonton neighbourhood of Beverly. Beverly parents and residents overcame adversity and kept things going in tough times as builders of sport for kids.
Spectators are painted watching the Beverly community hockey game in the 1980's in this left section of the mural. Most of the figures in the painting are portraits of Edmonton folks; from left foreground Harry Ewanik, Kathy Morrison and Cornel Rusnak.
