Plan now for a weekend of hockey up north! The Eagle River Recreation Association (ERRA) to host the Ice Masters Tournament March 18-20, 2011.
March 18 - 20, 2011
Our 14th Annual Ice Masters Classic 3 on 3 Tournament is rapidly approaching. This fast paced half ice game is a real hit among the players and spectators. This is our 14th YEAR and it is the biggest and longest running 3 on 3 tournament you can find. Come and join the over 4000 previous participants of this one of a kind event. This year we will again target 70 - 75 teams for the largest 3 on 3 tournament anywhere.
We anticipate having Mite, Squirt, Pee Wee, Bantam, and Girls divisions. The deadline for registration is March 1. However, each of the previous tournaments filled quickly, and we are anticipating a full tournament again this year. Submission prior to the deadline DOES NOT GUARENTEE you will be in the tournament. Registration applications are processed in the order received. Submit your registration early to assure your spot and confirm with an email that your registration has been sent and received.
Girls’ teams please note: Girls teams should register as U12, U14, U16 or U19, by February 25. The age divisions for the girls will be will determine by the registration response and teams will be contacted at that time. It is very doubtful that there will be 4 girls divisions, but if any given age group at least 4 teams, a tourney will be held for that age group. We may also merge age groups as needed. Feel free to go out and recruit additional teams for your age bracket.
The game is an amazingly fast half ice game similar to half court basketball. Upon change of possession, the puck must be cleared outside the blue line with all offensive players touching up prior to becoming involved in the play. The goalies compete as individuals and stay extremely busy. Our record to date is a PeeWee goalie facing 62 shots during the three six-minute minute periods.
All teams are guaranteed 3 games, with the possibility of playing 5, 6, or even 7 games in this modified double elimination format. Individual trophies are awarded to teams for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and Thumper Bowl champs and for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place goalies in each division. Last year nearly a third of the participants left with individual trophies.
Additional information along with complete tournament rules will be sent to you upon receipt of your registration form. If you would like additional information, feel free to call me at (715) 891-1431 or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
