WEEKEND SCHEDULE & TOURNAMENT FORMAT
POOLS, PLAYOFFS & TIES
Each of the divisions are set up identically. Your team will first be placed in a round robin pool with other random teams within your division throughout 18 rinks, all which have real wood boards. Your team will play four games in this pool. After the four games, top teams from each pool will move on to the finals bracket. In the event there is a tie, the team with the least 'Goals Against' will advance. If it is still tied, the teams will have a shootout which will include 3 players per team. The team with the most goals wins. A puck will be flipped to decide which team shoots first.
SCOREKEEPERS / GAME MONITORS
Each game is staffed with a Volunteer from our charitable youth sports partners. These volunteers act as scorekeepers and game monitors. They are NOT trained ice hockey referees! What does this mean? It means that you play each and every game with integrity and honesty, calling infractions on your own team and keeping the other team honest - The way we all played as kids on the pond. Our scorekeepers will call infractions as necessary. If you cause havoc in the least, you are out. That is NOT what this tournament is about. If you don't understand what this means, we'll be very happy when we don't see you again. Click HERE for rules.
*EACH PLAYER MUST CHECK-IN AT LEAST 1 HOUR BEFORE YOUR FIRST GAME and ONE MEMBER OF EACH TEAM MUST CHECK-IN WITH SCORE KEEPER AT YOUR RINK 10 MINUTES PRIOR TO EACH ADDITIONAL GAME*
(Schedule subject to change for 2021 - Team captains please be sure to check your email prior to event for schedule updates. This page will also be updated prior to tournament dates)

Please note: changes in schedule will only take place for three potential reasons:
1. A team can not make it and they notify us before games begin. (don't do this teams, please)
2. Considerable changes in weather force games to be shifted earlier or later.
3. A meteorite strikes the pond, and there is no more ice.
