player is expected to participate in the entire tournament. An affiliate player must be a registered house league
player in the Wave Roller Hockey program.

All players will receive a home and an away jersey to wear during tournament play. However, this year the jerseys
are not to keep. They will be collected by the coach after every tournament and returned to the Wave Roller
Hockey program at the end of the season. This helps keep the cost of inline down for all players and teams.
