World Cup of Youth Hockey

7th Annual World Cup of Youth Hockey

March 17th – 19th, 2023

Represent a World hockey power in this unique hockey draft and tournament. All players are drafted for team parity creating a fun and competitive experience for all. Your child will be on Team USA, Team Canada, Team Slovakia, Team Sweden, Team Finland, or Team Germany.  Come and meet new friends that will last a lifetime!

The draft process is the same concept as you would do in fantasy football.  We will draw cards to determine who drafts first, and then we will do a typical “snake draft” (1-4; 4-1; 1-4, etc.).  Coaches’ first pick will always be their registered child.

Registered coaches and goalies need to be pre-approved, not guaranteed a spot by simply registering. The pre-approved process for coaches/goalies will consist of a series of questions on the registration form (e.g. playing/coaching experience, certifications, level of play, accolades, stats, etc.).
