To reserve your team’s spot, click on the registration link below.  Space is limited so you will want to sign up as early as possible! Simply fill out the registration form and pay the $50 deposit to reserve your space.

Note: We don’t recommend more than about 9-10 players on a team so all players get maximum ice time. If you have a larger team (more than bout 13) you can split it into two. If you need to, you can use some players on both team. We will try to make sure that both teams play at separate times.

The total cost in the past has been $20 per player for one-day event, $25 for two-day event.  The balance of your team fee must be paid at least a week prior to the event. Once you know for sure how many will be attending you can pay the balance.
