Team Officials
A team may register as many team officials as they wish with the understanding that as per Hockey Canada Playing Rules, only five (5) team officials may be on the bench at one time during a game.  Minimum Coaching Certification would be as per Branch Regulations and all requirements will be those of the “A” category and below.

Team/Participant Fees
$50.00 per team
$10 per participant (Player or Team Official). If the player or Team Official was not registered in the previous Winter Season the Participant Fee is $48.

Tournament Sanction Fees
The $25.00 per age group/division fee would apply which is the same as in the Winter.

For example; Tournament has three age groups (U9, U11 and U13) along with two levels/tiers in each age group – that would equate into six Tournament Sanctions.
