Sunshine State Pond Hockey Championship
No Coaches – No Positions – All Fun
This event is open to all Florida residents that are USA Hockey registered players born in
2000 & 2001 (Squirts) and 2002 & 2003 (Mites). Skaters born in 2004 and later – plus
goaltenders in 1999 – will be considered on a space available basis.
Twelve teams will be formed with 4-5 skaters and a goaltender each. Full equipment, bring
your favorite white and dark jersey! Games will be played in a 3-on-3 format, maximizing
‘touches’ and ice time. Two divisions will separate players by experience level. Each game
will run 15-20 minutes; and scores will be kept. Teams will play a minimum of five games
against teams and players of similar age, experience, and ability.
Volunteers will be responsible for player substitutions, with emphasis on equal playing time.
Officials will supervise for safety purposes and to keep play moving.
