Tournament Format


Pre-Game Warm-Up:

All teams must be ready to play 10 minutes prior to the scheduled game time. Warm-ups shall be restricted to 5 minutes in length, and the clock starts whether players are ready to go on the ice or not. The tournament committee/referees reserve the right to restrict or waive warm ups if time constraints dictate.

Airdrie Stars will supply each bench with pucks. Please ensure the pucks make it back into the bucket and remain on the bench for the next game.

Game Format:

All games shall consist of three (3) twenty minute stop time periods.

There will be no floods during the game; floods will occur after each game. There will be a 1 minute break between periods.

The tournament committee/referees reserve the right to make the third period running time if the score is 7 or more goals in favor of a team entering the third period. If there are more than 2 minutes left in the game with 5 (or less) minutes left in the timeslot, the clock will be dropped to 2 minutes at the first whistle with 5 or less minutes remaining in the timeslot.

All scorekeeping and time clocks will need to be run by a parent volunteer from each team for their team's game. Each team is to supply two parents to help work the box. The volunteers must be over the age of 19 years old and conduct themselves appropriately while managing the box.

Following each game, please have the home team manager take a picture of the score sheet and send it to Dustin at 403-988-5548. Team Snap Tournaments will be used for game tracking.

Teams will be allowed one time-out per game, stopping the clock for a maximum of 30 seconds. Injuries to a player on the ice will result in the clock stopping at the referees' discretion.

There will be no overtime and a shoot-out will be held to determine the game winner. This process will be followed until the game is won:

  • If still tied after the first initial (3) shooters, (3) more different players will be chosen and will shoot on a sudden death If still tied, repeat as necessary.
