There are six divisions: Micron (Born 2003-2004), Mite (Born 2001-2002), Squirt (Born 1999-2000), PeeWee (Born 1997-1998), Bantam (Born 1995-1996) and Midgets (Born 1992-1994). All six divisions are co-ed, and division placements are determined by age/birth year following USA Hockey guidelines.

An 18 and older tournament will take place in September. Full details will be released at a later date.

All participants are responsible for bringing their own hockey stick and gloves. Goalie equipment is mandatory. Teams are also encouraged to bring one light and one dark colored shirt. All players in the Micron and Mite divisions are required to wear a helmet.

Deadline for entry is August 7, or whenever registration is full. Space is limited so register now! Last year’s event sold out early.

New this year is an all-day Tent Sale on the floor of HSBC Arena. Fans are encouraged to come down for great deals on a wide array of unique new and used memorabilia and merchandise, including: jerseys, autographed sticks, posters, exercise equipment and old goal lights!
