Category: Spring/Summer AAA Hockey

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 (likey for tournaments with smaller division sizes)


PRE-NOVICE – $707.96 + HST ($800.00 TOTAL)


$100.00 from each entry fee will be donated to local food banks who have been instrumental in helping our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

All divisions are full-ice except for the 4on4 Pre-Novice 2013 division which will use a half-ice format.

Games Per Team: 5 GAME MINIMUM for all teams!


Pre-Novice 4on4 (Half Ice): Games in this division will feature a 3:00 warm-up, and two (2) 24:00 run-time periods. As an exciting addition to the event, there will also be a 6 player shootout after both the 1st and 2nd periods. The winning team from each shootout will receive a “bonus goal” added to their game’s score.

Novice, Atom divisions,: 3 X 12 minute stop time periods; Peewee, Bantam divisions: 2 X 12, 1 X 15 minute stop time periods. All games are played using extended length blocks (NO 1-hour games in any divisions). Boys Major Peewee and Minor Bantam WILL feature BODY CHECKING.

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.
