Good luck to all of the players!
The tournament will be held at Parc Jean-Drapeau's Olympic Basin and will feature teams of 4 to 6 players, competing in a 4-against-4, double-elimination format.
The Classique Montréalaise will gather at least 96 teams divided in four different categories: Die-hard, Recreational, 50 and over and Ladies. Teams will play a minimum of two games on the Saturday. If a team looses its two starting games, it can stick around the next day to cheer on the others! Otherwise, playoff rounds begin on Sunday.
Teams will be categorized on the basis of their roster's skill profile. (Skill level to be indicated by each player on the team registration form, to be filled and sent before January 13th, 2017)
The popularity of outdoor hockey-or pond hockey, as it's sometimes called-is booming all over Northern North America, with big-time tournaments springing all over the place. In Canada, National and World Championships are happening in Ontario and New-Brunswick respectively, while our US neighbours have a number of 200+team events, namely in Lake Placid, New York, and Meredith, New Hampshire.
Our goal is to make sure that your participation - and the spectators' - will be as enjoyable as it is safe. In the event of bad weather, the Classique will be re-scheduled for the following weekend, February 4th and 5th, still at the Olympic Basin.
