Tournament Rules:

Upon arriving at the arena before every game, a team official must verify and sign the game sheet. Teams are asked to use the assigned dressing rooms. Dressing room information will be displayed in lobby area of the arena and in the hallway near the dressing rooms. Teams are asked to be dressed and ready to step on the ice at their designated time.

A reminder to all teams that proper gear (CHA approved) must be worn at all times. Please remember that there is Zero Tolerance for verbal or physical abuse of our referees. This is inclusive of spectators. These officials are young and fairly new to officiating and therefore need our encouragement and support.

Playing Rules:

Games will be 45 minutes in length. There will be a 2 minute buzzer to signal the player changes. Face-offs will occur on shift changes, but not during regular play. “Half court” rules will apply where teams are to retreat to their side of the ice whenever there is a stoppage in play (i.e. for goals or goalie freezes). Games will have no score kept or posted.

Refereeing: All games will be refereed (including Initiation Major). If penalties are called, players must sit out until the end of their shift, or a penalty shot may be awarded.

Team splitting: Teams will not be split as only one ice sheet will be available for each ice time. If you have a particularly large team, please notify the tournament organizers and your team may be split and be entered as two teams (should a spot be available). 

Player benches: Player benches will be shared. The penalty boxes may also be used as player benches.

Team officials on the ice: in Initiation Major (H2), team officials will be permitted to be on the ice to facilitate line changes, etc., if desired. ONLY rostered team officials are permitted on the ice, and helmets and skates are MANDATORY. 

Handshakes: Teams are expected to shake hands at the end of each game.
