Registration and Rules

For the 33rd Annual MICEC Indigenous Minor Hockey Tournament, we are powering our tournament using EventConnect, the leading tournament management system. On November 15, 2022, registration will go live.

One of the many valuable features we like that distinguishes this platform from a housing provider, is the ease of access to the best hotel options for travelling teams. Our tournament hotels ensure all participants are receiving the best group rates, amenities, cancelation protections and customer service.

In the spirit of creating amazing experiences, we ask that all hotel activity is done through our network. In the coming weeks, you will be able to book your rooms rooms through our partner. Please check to book your room.
