There are an astronomical amount of people who love hockey, but rarely — if ever — play the sport in this area. I’m here to help change that.
On Saturday, September 23, RMNB is renting out the Rockville Sportplex to hold our second annual ball hockey tournament. In conjunction with DCHL Leagues, we’re hosting two co-ed mini-tourneys where teams are formed by your level of play: recreational and advanced. The winning teams will get to hoist the greatest championship in all of sports: the GR8 Missing Tooth Trophy.
Last year’s event drew nearly 100 people so tell your friends and please get your reservations in quickly.
Here are the full details from the DCHL commissioner Suds.

NOTE: You can group a player or two or three as package deal, but you must email and have all those involved PAID for this to be allowed.
ROSTER FORMAT: 5-on-5 and a goalie. We prefer to see at least ONE woman on the FLOOR rule at all times so AT LEAST 2 women on a roster. This means an 11 player rosters should consist of at least 2 women, 8 other floor players and a GOALIE. This should set each team with 2 lines.
EQUIPMENT: Any stick and SHIN GUARDS are required for new players. Gloves and helmets are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED though NOT required.
GAME FORMAT: Every team will play anywhere from 3 to 4 round games anywhere from 15 to 25 minutes (based on number teams that sign up). And then there is single elimination playoff. Generally every team is guaranteed anywhere from 80 minutes to 90 minutes of playing time. So bring your running shoes! 🙂
