As the continued leader in hockey programs and tournaments anywhere, our unique division-tiering strategy will be employed to ensure all teams the best possible experience, value and competition.

Divisions will be tiered using one of the following methods:

  • Separate divisions of play (ex. D2 and D3) for the entirety of the tournament (round robin and playoffs). Teams should indicate if they are a D2 or D3 team when they apply (e.g. mostly Tier I players, or mostly Tiers II/III players)
  • Separate divisions of play for the playoff rounds. In this format teams will find their own way into a division of play for the playoffs, based on their round robin record.
  • One division of play for all teams should that be determined as the best option.


Major Novice (2011) and Major Atom (2009): $1,515 (Tax Included)

Minor Peewee (2008) and Major Peewee (2007): $1,600 (Tax Included)

Bantam (2005): 1,620 (Tax Included)

Games Per Team: New this season a 5 game minimum!


Pre-Novice: 2×10, 1×12 minute periods, Novice, Atom divisions,: 3 X 12 minute stop time periods; Peewee & Bantam: 2 X 12, 1 X 15 minute stop time periods. Boys Major Peewee and Major Bantam WILL feature BODY CHECKING. All games are played using extended length blocks (NO 1-hour games in any divisions).  At specific divisions, teams may register separately for division 2 or division 3.

Important note regarding the Major Peewee division: Please note that bodychecking will be permitted at the Major Peewee level; however, all teams will be expected to have conducted a formal bodychecking clinic for their players. Thank you for your cooperation in ensuring a safe tournament for all of our teams.
