November 23rd - 26th, 2023
The SEDMHA Honda Female Minor Hockey Tournament sponsored by Scotiabank is held November 23rd - 26th. It is an opportunity for teams to launch their minor hockey season. The tournament is to be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We will be using all four ice surfaces at the new RBC Center (4 Pad) in Burnside.
Teams play their first game on Thursday, November 23rd 2023 in the afternoon or evening. Games continue through Friday and Saturday. The finals are held on Sunday, November 26, 2023
The tournament is open to Female U11, U13, U15 and U18 teams in various skill categories. Please note that for 2023 there will not be a U18 AAA division. We welcome applicants from all geographical areas. For non North American teams the tournament will work with your team to ensure that a letter is sent to your Hockey Federation to extend a tournament invitation to your team and arrange all necessary permits.
The tournament uses a unique draw system of games which not only allows us to run divisions with odd numbers of teams but also gives us the ability to provide competition within each category based on team skill. Teams play their first two games to establish their level of play. The result is teams with 2 wins playing in the ODYSSEY division, teams with 1 win/1 loss playing in the ACCORD division, and teams with 2 losses playing in the CIVIC Consolation division.
All teams are guaranteed three games. With this draw system in most cases if you win your third game you will play a fourth game even with two losses. See the sample draws from previous tournament for further details.
All games are 15 minute stop time periods with a flood after either the first or second period. All Championship Finals are 15 minute stop time with a flood after the second period.
The All inclusive Entry fee is $1300.00. This fee includes the registration of the team and free entry for all parents and fans regardless of age. There is no charge or fee collected at the door. This is a free event.
