Details:
This years event our 5th Annual proves to be best one yet. Defending Champions ” 3 toques and rubber boot” are returning to defend there title while the Moosehide Mama’s of Fort Simpson are looking to defend the women’s division title.

The event is located on fisherman’s wharf. Pond Hockey is a 4 on 4 game of hockey played with smaller nets and no goalies.  Rinks are 150 ft by 75 ft or 75% the size of a normal rink. Sportsmanship and fairplay are the name of the game and players are guided by these concepts more than the rules. However there are rules.
-No Slapshots, raising the puck is not necessary and saucer passes should be attempted with caution
-No goaltending, players are cautioned to stay out the crease
-Games are 30 minutes long with 2- 15 minute halves
-Teams will only be allowed to substitute a player after a goal is scored upon them. The player entering the game must enter the ice from behind their own net.
-Any blatant penalty will result in a goal for the team offended and they get possession of the puck.
