McKnight Hockey Association will be hosting several tournaments during the season. All of the McKnight teams are entered into a tournament lottery prior to team selection. Teams will be notified if they are picked in the lottery after team selection. Teams are chosen by a lottery due to limited ice availability and high interest from teams to host tournaments on local ice. If a team is drawn for the tournament lottery and chooses not to host the tournament the next team on the list will be offered the tournament.
The only exception to the lottery is the McKnight Timbits teams as they will cumulatively host and participate in the annual McKnight March Madness Timbits Tournament. For more information on the Timbits tournament and each Timbit team’s responsibility, please refer to the Timbits Division webpage.
McKnight has created several documents to assist you in hosting your teams tournament.
