The Tournament

2 Divisions: Something for Everyone

The tournament is run by professional referees. Teams are guaranteed a 3-game minimum. Games are allotted two 12-minute periods running time, a two-minute pre-game warm-up, and a one-minute break between periods. Competitive teams may have 4-10* players including goaltender. 

*Any player who has played or currently plays in the NHL or in Women’s professional hockey does not count towards the maximum total, as it is an honour and privilege for participants to play against them in the tournament. 


Recreational Division (ages 13+)
Players of all ages enjoy a fun filled day with a guarantee of three games per team. Designed for all levels of players, the games stay friendly and light. Whether your team includes office staff, family, or a group of good friends, this is a great bonding activity, and all for a great cause!

The division winner is calculated based on final standings - as there are no playoffs.

Competitive Division (ages 16+)
Includes 3 round robin games and culminates in playoffs - and is best suited for intermediate and advanced players. If you have a school team, corporate, or active ball hockey team - this is the division for you.

Required Gear
All players ages 18+ are required to wear eye protection (available onsite at no charge). In addition, we strongly recommend a helmet, jock strap, shin pads and elbow pads. We expect goalies to be in full gear. Please note that Hockey de Rue does not provide equipment other than eyewear.

All players under the age of 18 are required to wear full cage and gloves.
