    • Novice to Major Peewee 10-10-10
    • Minor Bantam to Major Midget 10-10-15
    • All games will start with 13 minutes on the clock. As soon as the Referees have stepped on the ice the clock will start for the Teams to warm up. At 11 minutes the Referees will blow their whistle signalling the Teams to get ready to start. The puck will drop at the 10 minute mark and the clock will not stop until the first stoppage in play. This is to ensure that games start on time.
  • There will be no Time Outs or Overtime in the Round Robin Games.
  • Ice will not be resurfaced between periods.
  • Referees decisions are final. There will be no appeal process

  • Teams should be ready to play no later than 15 minutes prior to scheduled game time.
  • Advancing to Sunday will be based on one of the following ways: In Divison with Group A and Group B you will need to be the top 2 Teams in each Group to move on. In Divisions with only one Group you will need to be one of the top 4 Teams unless you are in a Division with only 4 Teams in which case you will need to be one of the top 2 to play in the final game. Top Teams are determined by points.

  • Points are awarded as follows:
    • Win = 2 points, Tie = 1 point, Loss = 0 points

     

  • In the event of a 2-way tie at the end of Round Robin play, tie breaker will be as follows:
