A preliminary schedule will be created when we are able to confirm the final teams. We will then publish a list of rinks where levels will play to help teams find lodging near the rink.
Final schedules will be available approx. 2 weeks prior to the tournament start date. The tournament is played from Thursday to Sunday. Games typically begin after 5pm on Thursday and will continue Friday mid-day to Sunday. Final games on Sunday typically begin between 3pm-6pm.
Teams traveling from out-of-town will begin play on Friday when possible.
