Across Street from sport and leisure complex, corner of Porier Street and Winslow Avenue
Managers Check in: Please check in at Tournament office 15 min prior to first game (or sooner!) Upstairs in the MAIN Arena, office with windows by elevators.
Timeliness: This tournament weekends schedule is JAM PACKED. Please have teams ready to go 10 min prior to game time!
Schedule and Rules: Our tournament website has the schedule and rules posted. I am currently working on a live tool which will help with updated scores. I will send another note once that is up and running (it will be posted on the tournament website).
If this is your first Challenge tournament with playoffs, please make sure your coaches, parents and team understand the rules. Things can get heated as round robin play ends if folks are not aware of how the seeding for the semiâ€™s or finals works (cross over games and medal games).
MVP/Heart&Hustle/Medals: Each game will have an MVP (Most Valuable Player) and H/H (Heart and Hustle) award given at the conclusion of the game. Your coach will be given a small sheet to use during the game to designate 2 players from their team to receive the award from the refereeâ€™s at the end of each game. Please make sure the coach gets that information to the ref at the conclusion of the game. Teams will line up at center and the awards will be given out. DO NOT GIVE EITHER AWARD TO A PLAYER TWICE. We want the most possible kids getting an award vs single kids doubling up.
Game Snacks: each player will receive vouchers for one post game snack for each game over the weekend. Players are advised to head to the MAIN arena Tournament Office (upstairs in MAIN arena) to receive their choice of snack!
Raffle Table and Vendors: some Vendors will be onsite selling clothing, equipment and services, raffle baskets will be downstairs between arenas.
Food: Players will receive a free hotdog voucher, there is a full service café in the building as well. Saturday morning from 9am - Noon (or when food runs out), there is a pancake breakfast, sponsored by the JR Adanacâ€™s across the street, across from the Forum, off of Poirier St. There is a price for breakfast, details to come soon.
Senior Adanacs Home Opener: Saturday night, 7pm in the MAIN arena is the SR Adanacs home opener against the Nanaimo Timbermen. Each player will receive a ticket for free entry and 2-for-1 parent entry.
