We promote a Quality experience and expect those coming to respect each other and as a result the game itself. This includes opponents, on-ice officials, park workers as well as volunteers who help all of us to experience outdoor hockey. As of Nov 13, 2023 we are in full preparation mode coordinating logistics that allow this event to go safely and smoothly. Please, all players should read the following policy information.
Registered teams must be paid in Full to lock-in their spot in this 2024 Tournament. Event coordinators reserve the right to return full payment within 48 hrs to any team, if it is determined we are over our maximum teams enrolled threshold of NINETY (So, if you're playing in this event, do NOT delay to register, teams who delay may not get in).
Paid in full team registrations do include a $225 non-refundable deposit should this 2024 tournament be canceled for any reason, (COVID, public health scares, poor weather, unsafe ice conditions).

TEAM ROSTERS: All rosters will be approved prior to January 15th, 2024 as all team captains will have confirmed roster names /ages in original team checkout order. Then at physical check-in ( 2-3 days before games begin - via text or email), every player sends a PIC ID along with a signed liability waiver. This is a MUST (forms will also be on-hand rink-side at check-in). Teams who do not keep to official rosters will not advance if its determined they altered rosters.
