ATTEND A TOURNAMENT

The number of tournaments a team wishes to take part in should be discussed and decided upon at the first parents' meeting. Teams must follow the Guidelines set out in the Hockey Calgary Bylaws and Playing Rules for limits on games and schedule windows.

Any team wishing to take part in a tournament must complete a Schedule Window Request. Once this has been completed Hockey Calgary will not schedule your team a game on the dates within the request, and GHC will not schedule any practices during those dates. This is all done through the Hockey Calgary Login.

Any team travelling outside of Zone 9 for a tournament must request a Travel Permit. By completing a Travel Permit request, you are ensuring that your team will be insured through Hockey Alberta. This is done through the Hockey Calgary Login.

DETERMINE TIER

It is important to enter a tournament that reflects the competition level of your team.

Tiered teams should use their Hockey Calgary Tier # as opposed to their GHC Team # as reference. If you are unsure if a tournament is appropriate for your team's competitive level, contact the Tournament Host.

REGISTER WITH HOST

It is highly recommended that your Team Manager or Tournament Coordinator apply for tournaments as soon as possible. Both local and out-of-town tournaments fill quickly.

Your tournament host will identify deadlines for payment, official rosters and travel permits.

3

SCHEDULE WINDOW

Team Managers must submit a Schedule Window Request before the Hockey Calgary deadline. If your tournament is out-of-town, you will also submit a request for a travel permit.

Tournament hosts must ensure that all the game sheets are completed on the Hockey Calgary website.

SCHEDULE AN EXHIBITION GAME

Any team wishing to play an exhibition game must complete an Exhibition Game Request through their Hockey Calgary Login.

Once the Community Assignor / Central Zone Referee Committee is able to confirm officials, they will approve the game and you will receive an email notification.

For exhibition and home tournament games, the team manager or treasurer is responsible to ensure that the officials are paid prior to going on the ice. For more information on official fees, please visit our Manager's page.

HOST A TOURNAMENT

All tournaments hosted by Calgary teams must be sanctioned by Hockey Calgary. Submitting your tournament sanction request prior to the deadline does not guarantee your tournament will be approved.

Tournament hosts must ensure the tournament is played under Hockey Canada Official Playing Rules and complies with Hockey Canada, Hockey Alberta and Hockey Calgary Regulations and bylaws.

Tournaments in Calgary will not be sanctioned for community divisions during the seeding round or regular season. For tournaments outside of Calgary, a sanction may be granted at any time except Esso Minor Hockey Week.

Tournament hosts must ensure that all the game sheets are completed on the Hockey Calgary website.

For more information on hosting a tournament or to request a sanction, please visit Hockey Calgary's Tournament Hosting Information page.
