2020 Team Name Policy

Because USA Hockey’s website and social media platforms are visible to hockey fans of all ages (e.g., children of participants go to the website to see if their mom or dad won that day), team names must not be offensive to any particular group or individual. While we encourage and enjoy creativity, we can no longer post team names online that may be sexually suggestive, discriminatory or harassing in any way. USA Hockey will review all team names, and reserves the right to reject your team name, or in USA Hockey’s sole discretion to modify any team name deemed offensive by either abbreviating or shortening a team name. Thank you for your cooperation in being respectful to all hockey players and fans.

Team Information

Please use the following division descriptions as a guideline when choosing a division. It is advised that you place your team based on the experience of your team’s strongest three players as opposed to your weaker players.

DIVISION DISCLAIMER

Knowingly entering your team into an inappropriate division will not improve your chances of getting into your preferred division that might be sold out. Registering into an inappropriate division and also going on a waitlist for an acceptable division will move you to the bottom of that waitlist. Please sign up for the appropriate division or, if it’s sold out, put yourself on the waitlist. The tournament director(s) reserves the right to move teams into appropriate divisions/waitlists as needed to ensure parity across the tournament.

If you won your division last year, you must play in a division above, where applicable (high level divisions may be an exception) USA Hockey's staff reserves the right to move your team if you register in a division you previously won.
