COVID-19 Special Rules

On Monday, July 13, Ottawa entered Stage 3 as it relates to COVID-19. This stage WILL allow this tournament to be played with the following special considerations:

  • Rosters will be limited to 12 players (combination of goalies and skaters). These players must be the same throughout the event. No more than 12 different players may play for a team during a tournament. No player may play on multiple teams in the tournament. S.S.H.D. teams will be allowed to have up to 13 players on their roster.
  • Games will be played with regular hockey rules – full ice and 5-on-5, with the exception of the 2013 division, which will be played on full ice, but 4-on-4.
  • There will be no body checking in any division
  • A limit of one spectator per player will be allowed in the facility.
  • Teams will play all their games within a “bubble” of 4 total teams. This is to adhere to the 50 person limit for competition.
  • Players must arrive at the arena fully dressed, with the exception of skates, gloves, and helmet

As the tournament approaches, more specific COVID-19 rules and regulations will be shared with your team.

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)
  • One division of play for all teams should that be determined as the best option
