Each tournament is required to verify that all participating teams are properly registered with USA Hockey or their country’s federation.

A USA Hockey Official Team Roster Form (1-T) approved by the district or associate registrar shall be proof of proper registration and individual player age. Invitational tournaments shall not require player birth certificates for review.

Travel Permits are required for any team from an affiliate requiring Travel Permits, and are required for all Canadian teams. An International Competition Travel Form is required for all other foreign teams.

All coaches must be registered with USA Hockey at the proper level and be Safe Sport verified. All players must also be registered and rostered with USA Hockey and Mass Hockey.

Be aware that Massachusetts Hockey is enforcing the USA Hockey mandate for age-appropriate playing surfaces at the 8-under (Mite) level. Any sanctioned tournament at the 8-under (Mite) level must provide a “half-ice” or “cross-ice” format to be considered a sanctioned tournament.

Tournaments will not be considered approved until you receive confirmation from Massachusetts Hockey Registrar Stephen Palmacci and USAH Risk Manager Steve Fitzgerald after they review the application, tournament rules and payment.

Tournaments will not be posted on the website until officially approved.

Once approved, tournaments will be posted on the USA Hockey and Massachusetts Hockey websites,
