All teams are seeded by the Tournament Seeding and Selection Committee. In order to assist in this process, teams are required to complete the on-line "Games Schedule" component of their application. In this section, teams will record scores and opponents for all of their games. Teams are asked to complete this section regularly. The intent is to provide a competitive balance amongst divisions and to have the round robin groups as balanced as possible. The Seeding and Selection Committee relies on teams completing their Games Schedule in a timely manner to assist in this process. In previous tournaments a number of teams were not accepted because they failed to complete this section.
Teams that plan on attending an Ottawa Senators games will have special scheduling consideration to accommodate their plans. Teams MUST acquire their tickets through Senators Sports & Entertainment in order to be sure that the schedule will accommodate them. i.e. the tournament scheduler will utilize the list of teams provided by SSE.
