Tournaments 2016-2017

Tournament Coordinator

McKnight will be hosting 10 tournaments this season by lottery. Each division will have 2 teams drawn for the lottery. Teams will have a choice to host a tournament in December or March, excluding PeeWee (December ONLY). Please refer to our Tournaments website page for information and to register your team for the lottery. Should a Team or Division decline participation, the remaining spots will be drawn from those teams left.

There is also a Timbits Tournament that is hosted by McKnight each March, and all McKnight Timbits teams are invited to play and participate in the organization of the tournament. Timbits teams are not part of this lottery. For more information on the Timbits tournament, please refer to the TIMBITS Homepage.

Tournament Details:

  • Teams are chosen by a lottery as there are typically more teams wanting to host tournaments than we have ice available.
  • Each division lottery will be separate.
  • Should there be no teams for a particular division, all available teams will go into one lottery for the remaining spots.
  • Teams are asked to choose their tournament preferences from the available dates as noted above.
  • Games will consist of 2 games on Friday, 4 games on Saturday and 2 final games on Sunday.
  • Games are all scheduled as either 1.00 or 1:15 with the finals at 1:15 or 1:30, to allow for medal presentations.
  • When the lottery has been completed, the ice schedulers will schedule in the tournament ice.
  • When your team has accepted their tournament spot, payment for ice is required by November 1, 2016 for December tournaments and January 16, 2017 for March tournaments.
  • Payments can be made by transfer between your team account and the McKnight account.  Please complete the Team Funds Transfer form to process your payment.
  • The Tournament Coordinator will then enter your tournament details into the Hockey Calgary website.
  • Once teams are approved and games are entered, then this will trigger the referee placements as well.
  • Referee costs will be invoiced directly to the teams from Central Zone and are the hosting team's responsibility.
  • Should you have any questions regarding the above, please contact our Tournament Coordinator.
