CHF FEDERATION CUP National  Tournament general information


FEDERATION CUP COACHES MEETING - The CHF National Tournament Coaches Meeting will take place at the Iceline (Enter through Marquee at rink 1, the room is on the right) in West Chester following the last practice at 8:00 on March 17. All teams must have representation at this meeting.

Tournament Schedule There are 16 games a day for the three days of pool play. It is extremely important that we start games on time as much as possible. There will be CHF Supervisors on each rink to keep things moving.  The Game Protocols are in this document. Please go over them with your players know the expectations.

** TEAMS are encouraged to arrive early for all practice and game slots.

 ACCESS: ICE LINE FROM THE PARKING LOT - All players, coaches,   etc. should enter through the main doors only. Players and coaches only will have access to locker room hallways, and trainers’ area.  All spectators and guests are restricted to the lobby/snack bar area as well as viewing around the rink and on the concourse.

All players, coaches, etc. should enter through the front doors only. This rink has more “open” access to locker room areas, and we ask that the coaches keep all non-playing personnel away from the locker room areas.

ATHLETIC TRAINING ROOM - The primary athletic training room will be in the locker room area.   This area can also be used by the teams’ Athletic Trainers.  Please note that the trainers hired by the CHF are in the arena to assist with immediate injuries.  They are not there to tape and build padding for injuries that occurred prior to that day’s game.
