The day-long tournament, played on foot, will be hosted at Clark Park’s tennis court facilities and includes food, games, music and additional activities. Prizes and signed memorabilia will be awarded to the winning teams.
Each team will be comprised of five to eight players participating in “four-on-four” game play with four players & one goalie on the court at a time (adult recreational division will use “shooter tutors” instead of goalies). The Silvertips will provide nets, boards, and officials. Registered teams must provide their own sticks, helmets (required for 16 & under) and USA Hockey approved goalie equipment. Athletic “court style” shoes, shin guards and gloves are strongly recommended.
The competition will feature a round robin-style schedule, culminating in a single elimination playoff.
Teams will be placed in the following age groups: 14U, Recreational Adult, and Competitive Adult. To ensure balanced competition and effective scheduling, a cap may be installed on the number of teams in each age group.
