Whether you’re a seasoned hockey veteran or a newbie, there will be a level for everyone! Divided into four categories: die-hard, recreational, ladies, and 50 and over, Montrealers far and wide are invited to participate in this two-day hockey extravaganza.

A few logistical things to know: your team must be registered in advance, the captain of your team must be a resident of Montreal, and teams must be comprised of 4-6 players.
