Once you submit your online application, our tournament committee will review the application and approve it. At the time of the approval you will receive an email to secure your spot - you must also send in a deposit of $400.
Everyone should plan on arriving Thursday night as games will begin Friday morning. On Sunday, the finals will all be completed by 4:30pm. As the tournament gets closer, we will have a more accurate Sunday schedule for the finals.
Every year this is a difficult task. There is always a bubble team that could have gone either way. Each year, we wait until the MYHOCKEY Rankings come out and we seed all the teams (US and CANADA combined). Then we draw a line depending on how many teams are in each division. We do realize that the first week of data from MYHOCKEY is raw and sometimes not complete but it's the best we have to work with. This year, we plan on releasing the schedule 7-10 days before the event so that we can have as much data as we can to improve on our decisions. Past year's results may not always be a good indicator as many teams change from year-to-year. We also have a committee of contacts at every age group to help us understand who has improved and who has not.
Rosters must be entered online through the registration process. We will also need your official roster prior to the event. Those can be scanned and uploaded to your team profile for the event. Or if you cannot upload the roster please email it to the tournament director. Travel permits are required for all Canadian teams as well. Some US associations also require travel permits.
