Le Classique will be held on Friday and Saturday February 8 – 9 with each team being guaranteed 3 games over the course of the two days. The first games will commence Friday evening with games running until 11:00 pm, finishing under the lights. The Saturday games begin at 9:00 am and run all day until the tournament winds up around supper time on Saturday night.
Early Registration is $120 per team. Team roster sizes will be limited to a maximum of 7 players (including goalie). Early registration closes January 11, 2019. Regular registration after this date will be $150 per team.
Goalies will be allowed to be using full ice equipment, with standard limitations on equipment. The ball used will be the standard Canadian Tire Orange Street Hockey Ball (made by Winwell). Any standard hockey stick can be used.
The format will be quite simple, with the teams divided into pools of 4 teams, with a round robin taking place in each pool. Playoffs will be single elimination, until a winner is decided.
