GAME RULES
USA Hockey rules will govern play at all times unless otherwise noted below.

Absolutely NO ROSTER CHANGES from the submitted tournament and USA Hockey Rosters can be accepted without consent from tournament officials. If an accepted roster modification is allowed, a proper USA Hockey roster must be re-submitted.

Home team will wear light colored jerseys and visitors will wear dark colored jerseys except when a team only has one color, in which case they must let the other team know as soon as they arrive for the game.  Failure to notify the other team will result in the team wearing vests and getting a delay of game minor to start the game.

GAME TIMING RULES

  • All games will consist of three 12-minute stop time periods with a 3-minute warm-up.
  • If there is an 8 or more goal differential at any time during the game, running time will ensue for the remainder of the game regardless of score changes and will only stop for injuries.

Our families had such a good time, and much better than one of the name brand ones we did last year. The competition was so perfect for our age level and bracket. You and your team did a great job and I hope the team I coach next year can make a return visit for the 2023 edition.
