Registration for tournaments is done fully online. Go to the upcoming tournaments page and click GET STARTED on the specific tournament you’re interested in. When you’re in your chosen tournament, click the REGISTER NOW button. Once the deposit is sent, your team will be registered and a skills roster sheet will be sent to be filled out, which will determine the division and age group best suited for your team.

Most of our adult women’s and men’s hockey tournaments start around 5pm on Friday. For larger tournaments, however, games can start as early as 9am.
The cost of the tournament depends on location. Team fees are posted for each tournament. Hotel fees are extra for teams that need accommodations. Teams that book hotels through us do get preferred rates through Event Connect.
Anyone can participate, from those who are new to hockey to professional-level players. The age groups for our adult hockey tournaments are from 19+ to 55+. The divisions vary depending on the teams’ age and skill level.
The divisions will vary based on skill level but are: 19+, 25+, 30+, 35+, 40+, 45+, 50+, 55+, and the skills levels range from A – E (recreation). Determination of the divisions will be done by Weekend Hockey Tournaments’ staff. Once a skill roster sheet has been filled out, you will be matched up with three to five teams of similar skill and age. We also take geographical location into account, ensuring you’ll be exposed to new opponents.
The schedule will be emailed to the team representative 10-15 days before the tournament. Once the tournament has started, the schedule, as well as the scores of all games, will be available online.

Yes, if you are an out-of-town team and require a hotel, all rooms must be booked through our partner Event Connect in order to participate in the tournament. This ensures we’re able to maintain special group rates to keep the cost affordable. All hotels are close to the arenas where games are played, and we have options to suit every team’s needs.
Teams should be ready to start their games as early as 8am on Friday. Generally, local teams within one hour of the arena and teams that stay over on Thursday night will start the earliest. In addition, the younger teams start earlier than the older teams. Teams from distances that range from three to seven hours away can make a special request for later start times, which we’ll try our best to fulfill.
