FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I add/remove/change players on my team?

After captains submit their roster, they can make changes by emailing us at mepondhockeyclassic@gmail.com

 

When is the latest I can make a roster change?
Captains are permitted to make roster changes until they check-in at the tournament, any final roster changes made within a week of the tournament will be done during the check-in process. 

 

Can I play for more than 1 team? 
Players may only play for 1 team in the tournament. 

What preparations are made on the ice?
Preparations vary from year to year based on the weather conditions proceeding the event, typically we do a few large floods to set a base, followed by lighter flooding to create a better skating surface. We recently invested into a 40 year old diesel Zamboni, if ice thickness permits, this will be utilized. 

How are rinks maintained throughout the tournament?
Our ice crew uses several techniques to maintain the rinks, including, slush to fix cracks, turkey burners to smooth out rough spots, flooding, and squeegees. The players also play a vital role in scrapping the rinks with our MANPLOWS before, during & after each game - this is critical to helping our ice crew maintain rinks.  

 

What are the COVID-19 Protocols?

All players, spectators, and volunteers must provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result within 48 hours of arrival to the event.

 

We highly encourage masking and social distancing when possible, especially when in close quarters.
