tournament hockey simpliFIed!

Sign up as an individual

Looking for a team to play on in an adult hockey tournament?  No need to sweet talk your way onto someone's roster, because only individuals can sign up here.  That's all it takes to be on the All-Play team!

 

Everyone can play

 Sometimes you are too good.  Sometimes you are not good enough. Sometimes you can't get a team together.  Don't worry, everyone plays.  Our only limitation is if we have more goalies than teams.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

Teams are balanced

Wondering how we manage to fit all these skill levels together and get a great game?  Well, we'll ask a few questions, you'll provide a few honest answers, and then we'll let the computers analyze all the data and pick the teams so every roster is evenly balanced. 

Play on a different team

We all love playing with our regular season teammates but sometimes you just have to change it up.  

Meet new people

Meeting new hockey folks from throughout the region is always fun.  

Play for bragging rights

ESPN coldly declined to televise our tournament.  While it is clearly an outrage, we will still have the opportunity to heckle opposing skaters or best your regular season teammates.
