We invite all teams to participate in the Showdown Skills Event. The competition for each group takes approximately 30-45 minutes. We organize this competition to allow each player on every team to participate in at least one event. We stress that the Olympic events provide teams with a less serious atmosphere and are designed to be fun.
All players must wear full equipment and coaches need to bring skates, gloves and wear helmets. The teams within each group will compete against one another for the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Medals.
The Pin Exchange is a great opportunity for teams to trade or exchange pins or other keepsakes with the teams in tournament. It also provides teams the opportunity to engage in off-ice conversation and make new friends and contacts. We encourage all teams to participate in the Showdown Skills Event and Pin Exchange to make the most of your tournament experience.
