The opening ceremonies will take place on Friday, October 6th, 2017 beginning at 4:00PM at the Crowchild Twin RED arena.
Please make sure that your players and coaches gather in the Crowchild parking lot at 3:30pm (or right after your game) wearing your team jerseys and street shoes (no skates). A tournament representative will be there to provide you with instruction as to what you need to do for the ceremony.
There will be games ending prior to the start of the opening ceremonies so the timing is going to be a bit hectic for some teams. In order to ensure that we stay on schedule, we ask that these teams keep your equipment on for the ceremony. However we do ask that the players remove their skates and change into their street shoes.
The two teams that play right after the opening ceremonies - San Jose Junior Sharks and the North West Warriors, need to be dressed in their full game attire. Please be in your players bench no later than 3:55pm.
All parents and visitors are invited to sit in the stands and enjoy!
Thank you in advance as we greatly appreciate your helpful co-operation in continuing this tradition.
