Red: Also known as a Select division - this will be the highest level of competition. Most teams in this division will be nearing the end of their 8U eligibility.

White: Most teams will fall here. This is for players with some experience, but not yet ready for an ultra-competitive experience.

Blue: This is for beginning teams. This could be suitable for younger teams, or possibly a Learn to Play program wanting to experience a tournament.

Stay to Play Requirement

Out of town teams (teams whose home rink is located more than 75 miles away from South Metro Sports) are required to stay at a tournament hotel.

Team managers can use the button above to hold a block of rooms to help ensure your whole team can stay at the same hotel.


Four game guarantee. Divisions are expected to be either 4 or 5 teams. Divisions of 4 teams will play 3 round-robin games followed by a championship or consolation game. Division of 5 teams will play 4 round-robin games with the top two playing for the Championship.
