Required: Helmet, Gloves, Skates, Shin Guards, Elbow Pads
Suggested, but not required: Facemask, Shoulder Pads, Breezers, Mouth Guard

1. Each team can have a maximum of six (6) players on its roster.
2. Open division will be open to all ages, while the competitive division requires a minimum age of 16. Male, female or co-ed teams are all acceptable for both divisions.
3. No roster substitutions will be allowed once the first tournament game begins.
4. All games will be played 3-on-3, (i.e. 3 out players per team on the ice at all times).
5. Games and halves will begin with a face-off (center ice).
6. The puck will change possession after every goal scored. The defending team (team who just scored) must remain behind the centerline until one member of the offensive team crosses the centerline, at which point the defending team may enter the offensive team's zone.
7. During play, alternates can substitute, as teams deem necessary. No stoppage in play is necessary to make substitutions.
8. Standard hockey rules apply (i.e. no hand passes or kicked in goals)
9. If the puck goes out of play, the team captains will deem who caused the puck to leave the playing surface and possession of the puck will be awarded to the other team.

1. Games will be played in 25 minute allotments (including two 12 minute halves, running time, separated by a 1 minute half-time break).
2. Next game will start 10 minutes after the end of the previous game, to give ice shovelers time to clear the surface for the next game.

1. There will not be any officials on-site. Gameplay will be regulated amongst players and team captains. If there are any discrepancies, a tournament official may be called over to decide. Use your head when playing and understand this is an event to enjoy and have fun at. There is no need to get aggressive during gameplay.
2. There shall be no slashing, hooking, tripping, crosschecking, high sticking or inappropriate stick work of any kind. Doing so shall result in a turnover of possession. If continued, suspension could be issued for the remainder of the game. Continued issues or more serious offenses, including but not limited to spearing and/or butt ending, shall result in an individual being immediately removed from the tournament.
3. Fighting is unacceptable and will result in the individual and/or individuals being removed from the tournament.
4. There shall be no pushing, shoving, checking or unsportsmanlike conduct of any kind. Doing so shall result in possible suspension or expulsion of play.
5. Slapshots will NOT be allowed. For the purposes of this tournament a slapshot is considered to be anything where the player's windup comes above the knee. If the official deems a slapshot has been taken the other team will get possession of the puck.

1. Scoring is based on 3 points for a win, 1 for a tie and 0 for a loss.
Tie breakers are as follows: goal differential, the goals against, then a coin flip.

Off-site food and alcoholic beverages are not permitted. Food and beverage may be purchased at the event.
Additionally, there will be on-site security and paramedics if needed throughout the tournament.
