A huge shoutout to the Morrison Family YMCA for our partnership!  As we continue to grow the game of hockey, we appreciate them allowing non-YMCA-members to use the rink for this tournament.  That's right - you do NOT have to be a YMCA member to participate in this tournament.


The DeFeo Family Hockey Rink is YMCA property and is an amenity for their business.  We are working to build the partnership to include additional hockey events (pickups, leagues, youth programs, etc) - we hope to have news about the partnership at the tournament to share with everyone.

Do I have to be a YMCA member to participate?



But when you register for this tournament, please use your Sports Engine login, or you'll need to create one.

Tournament Format

This tournament will be a 5 on 5 (plus 1 goalie) street hockey tournament played at the Morrison Family YMCA on the Defeo Family outdoor rink. This tournament will be played on feet using a ball.


The tournament format will be shared once the number of registrants are established.  We expect to have enough runners to have anywhere between 3 and 5 teams @ roughly 7-8 runners per team.


CSHL will be making the teams in the name of fairness.  Sorry - we are not taking requests for teammates... this will be a fun tournament, even - and especially - if your son or daughter finds themselves playing against friends!

Free Agent Cost

Please sign up as a free agent for the cost of $20 (goalie or runner). 

Equipment Requirements

The following equipment will be required from all players (excluding goalies):


Helmet, Shin Guards, and Composite or Wood Sticks. Elbow pads are optional.

Tournament Format/Schedule

The schedule of the tournament will be released sometime between Thursday night, March 30th and Friday morning, March 31st.  We will share the tournament rules, and any other pertinent info regarding Saturday's happenings.
