Street Hockey Tournament
Saturday, May 13, 2017
As a Chamber of Commerce, our efforts are focused is on building our community through business and community groups. We would like to facilitate a street hockey event in Spruce Grove in conjunction with The Spruce Grove Saints with the intent of passing on a viable source of revenue for our local AAA Junior Hockey Team.
How much is it? The early bird cost for each team registered is $140.00 and is due at time of online registration. Each participant and one coach will receive free entry into the entire 2017 Life & Leisure Expo.
What does a team get for the registration? We would provide a three game minimum tournament. Each game is two 12 minutes halves. Each team will receive 7 welcome bags which will include some Saints “Holy Water” and some great items including gift cards thanks to Booster Juice Spruce Grove and our business community. Top three teams will receive a street hockey medal thanks in part to Laberge Engraving in Spruce Grove.
Who can register? Anyone between the ages of 7 and 12 on teams (Novice, Atom, Pee Wee in 2016/17 season) can register a team with at least one “coach” over 18 years of age. 18+ division is open to adults with a special invite to our business community. You won’t need the full roster at registration, but we do need the rosters provided by May 11th for the form pick up. All players on each team must be in the same age category.
How many players per team? Each team can register 7 players (two lines of three and a goalie -who will play in full goalie gear). The minimum players is 4 (one forward line and one goalie). Players are required to wear hockey helmets and gloves, goalies will be in full goalie gear. Each team is encouraged to have matching t-shirts – custom made, just matching, actual jerseys, or anything that makes it a “team” look.

Is there a limit on number of teams? We are offering five divisions – Novice (7-8), Atom (9-10) Pee Wee (11-12) Bantam (13-14) and *new this year* 18+ division each with their own “rink”. A maximum of 7 teams per division will allow for two 12 minute halves, three game guarantees. The first games start at 10 AM and conclude with the championship finals for each category at 5:30 pm.
