Hi there, it’s the 5th Annual Rocky Mountain Cup spring hockey tournament. If you are tired of the “big” city tournaments, mismatched divisions, mismatched games and the boring same old same old spring tournaments then please read on. We offer a four day, 6-8 team tournament in Jasper AB, with a small town old school hockey feel.
As well this year we have partnered up with Spartan Hockey and the Spartan Canada Cup to offer a tournament package discount. If you sign up for both the Rocky Mountain cup and the Spartan Canada Cup which is the May long weekend (May 19-22) you will receive a $200 discount. Another added feature for both tournaments is they will both be scouted by the Western Canadian Selects evaluators for potential players for teams competing in Major Prospect tournaments all over Europe and North America. This is an exclusive feature to both tournaments.
Our tournament offers your team 5 guaranteed games with 20-minute stop time periods and a competitive division, as each team is handpicked to ensure entertaining and challenging games. We have a full playoff round and a consolation round offering competitive, edge of your seat hockey, right to the very last game. Last year 3 gold medal games went to double and triple overtimes. To add to the excitement of every game. As well, we work with the Jasper Minor Hockey Association, who provides top level referees for every game. And we can’t forget to mention Shirley’s Place, one of the top concessions anywhere, with homemade soup, baking etc.
Tournament format is as follows there will be a 3 game round robin, after which teams will be ranked 1-8 with teams 1-4 being a AAA division and teams 5-8 being a AA division. Each division will play a playoff and championship round. This is how we can ensure an exciting finish to the weekend and every team has “something” legitimately to play for. We all know there is nothing worse than being “out of it” by Saturday morning.
Another added feature is the Saturday evening skills competition, again we want every player to be a participant in at least one event.
We also have “tournament rates” from our sponsoring hotels and “tournament discounts” from several businesses in the town of Jasper. This is the tournament of choice for the spring teams in Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia as well as the U.S.A.
All of this and an amazing opportunity to play this great game of hockey in one of the most picturesque places in Western Canada. Nestled in the heart of Canada's largest Rocky Mountain Park, the town of Jasper offers visitors unparalleled access to some of the most breathtaking and pristine wilderness and mountainous areas.
