A $250 portion of any deposit or entry fee submitted is
non-refundable upon receipt. All monies received are non-refundable if
cancellation occurs within 45 days of the tournament start date. Full
refunds will be made to teams involved in divisions that have not
filled. Teams affected will be contacted a minimum of 21 days prior to
the tournament start date and refunds will be issued immediately.
Team Roster Requirements
All teams are required to present a copy of their official roster that
is issued by their respective sanctioning body, either USA Hockey or
Hockey Canada, to our on-site director at the site of your first game.
The on site director will retain the document so make sure it is a copy
of the original document.
Tournament Start & Finish Times
Our tournaments that run from Friday to Sunday may start as early as 1pm
on Friday for “Out Of Town” teams. “In Town” teams typically start a
little later in the afternoon or evening on Friday with all championship
games being completed no later than 6:30-7:00pm on Sunday.
For tournaments that are listed as running Friday to Monday (M.L. King & President’s Weekends) teams will participate either Friday through Sunday or Saturday through Monday. Determination of which teams will start on Friday and finish on Sunday or begin play on Saturday and finish on Monday will be determined by tournament organizers 14 days prior to the event and provided to team representatives. An actual game schedule will be provided 7 days prior to the start of the tournament.
“Out of Town” teams selected to commence tournament play on Friday may start as early as 1:00pm. “Out of Town” teams that start on Saturday may start as early as 7:00am. “Out of Town” teams are encouraged to initially reserve 3 nights’ accommodations and reduce the reservations to 2 nights if so desired upon release of the game schedule.
“In Town” teams should note that on these weekends that their tournament could start on Friday afternoon as early as 4:00pm and finish either Sunday or Monday.
Team contacts should also be aware of the fact that although we have
some relatively early time slot(s) that occur on the first day of the
tournament, and some time slots for championship games starting as late
as 5:00-5:30pm, it doesn’t necessary mean your team will actually play
at that time. Another note, in general when scheduling games on the
second & third day of a tournament, the younger age groups typically
start earlier and finish earlier. This pattern may vary slightly on the
first day of a Friday through Sunday tournament with of course no later
Friday night games for the mite through peewee divisions.
A final note to team contacts, please be candid with your parent group
in regards to these scheduling guidelines and parameters that we have
provided. Make sure they are prepared to play hockey within the time
frame we have presented. Requests for late start and or finish times
will be noted, reviewed and accommodated whenever possible when
scheduling. However, there will be no guarantee that your request can be
accommodated. Once the game schedule has been released, there will be no
changes to the schedule based on the pleadings of team contacts that
have suddenly discovered that their parent group has threatened a mutiny
unless their schedule is changed. This approach used by some parents is
unprofessional and selfish and can make the team contact’s thankless job
even more difficult. Furthermore, schedule changes create much work and
problems for participating teams and organizers.
Teams Traveling By Air
Team contacts should submit by fax or e mail a detailed itinerary,
including departure time, arrival time, airline, flight number etc. at
least 21 days in advance to the start of the tournament. Flight plans
that don’t take into consideration the above listed scheduling
parameters should be discussed and approved by Hockey Time management
prior to purchase of tickets.
