McKnight Tournaments


McKnight will be hosting 8 tournaments this season by lottery. This is fewer tournaments then usual due to the loss of 1 weekend in December based on where Christmas falls. Teams will have a choice to host a tournament in December or March with PeeWee in December ONLY. 

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 Division website page.

Teams are chosen by a lottery as there are typically more teams wanting to host tournaments than we have ice available. 

Tournament Details:

  • 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 immediately.
  • Payments can be made via online transfer between the team account and the McKnight M account.  Please complete the Team Funds Transfer form to process your payment.
  • The Tournament Coordinator will then update 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.
