Thank you for choosing our tournament, we try to provide a great experience for all. A few reminders to help us accomplish that before starting your tournament games. We are a ZERO TOLERANCE FACILITY - all officials’ calls are final. The tournament director or tournament liaison if the director is not in the facility has the authority to make/change any decision regarding tournament behavior, concerns, or general operating of the tournament. .
1. Rosters - Each team may have a maximum of (18) players, plus no more than (2) goaltenders for a team total of twenty (20) on the player roster. Not more than four certified coaching personnel will be allowed on the player’s bench while games are being played. Only players on the roster may be on the bench. An official roster must be given to the tournament director or liaison(s) prior to the team’s first game.

Someone will need to be put in the box to serve the skater's 4th penalty. If a skater receives a 1 minute plus a 6-minute (Squirts/U10 girls) that will count as 2 penalties. If a player receives a major penalty, that will also count as two penalties. If a skater is still in the penalty box at the end of regulation, they are not able to participate in a shootout.

6. Bracketed Tournament - In the event of a tie at the end of regulation, teams will be given a 30 second rest period. Then the OT will go to a three-skater shootout. If still tied after that you will go one by one until someone wins in the shootout. Exception - Trophy games will go to a one 5 minute 4 on 4 sudden victory OT period (no timeouts during OT) - only then will it go to a three-player shootout and then one-person shootout if still tied. There will be no additional Zamboni no matter how many minutes of OT.
