Dear Manager or Coach,

The Tournament of Champions Committee will be hosting their 53rd Annual Hockey tournament in February of 2024 in Brandon, Manitoba.  The tournament’s goal is to provide a competitive tournament for Rep teams only.

Situated in the southwest corner of the Province of Manitoba, with a population of just over 48,000 people.  We are a 2 hour drive from Winnipeg’s James Armstrong Richardson’s International airport and home to Brandon ‘s Municipal Airport where WestJet flies out of daily.  We have a couple of great bus lines in Brandon, Compass Coach and Brandon Bus Lines,

Brandon is home to 4 indoor arena’s and is also home to the WHL’s Brandon Wheat Kings.  We will do our best to accomodate teams in order for them to attend a WHL game while in town.

We are fortunate to have a complex that has 3 ice surfaces under one roof.  The Keystone Centre is home to 3 NHL sized ice surfaces, an indoor turf and sport court flooring.  Our main arena, 5,101 seat Westoba Place, is home to the Brandon Wheat Kings of the Western Hockey League and serves not only as an ice rink, but can be converted to host concerts, and agricultural exhibitions.

The Keystone Centre is also home to the Enns Brothers Arena and Flynn Arena. Their unique parallel design allows them to share a concessionaire.  Each arena has 5 dressing rooms, including a referee’s room, brand new portable bleachers (900 capacity), electronic score clocks and in-arena sound system.

PLEASE NOTE: The other facility we would have used is the City’s run Sportsplex, but due to ice plant issues, they are not putting their ice in this season.

The other arena,is the J&G Arena, which boasts a NHL sized ice surface, performance centre, mini ice surfaces, pro shop and restaurant.

The Tournament of Champions has several sponsoring hotels which are all in close proximity to all arena venues.  The committee will be responsible for allotting teams into the hotels.

We will provide a competitive environment with staff on-site at all our hockey venues.

  • A Round Robin Format will be employed in all divisions for preliminary round play.

  • All games will consist of 2 – 15 minute and 1-20 minute period.  All stop time.

  • Each team will be guaranteed 4 games

  • Player of the game awards

  • Free Admission to all Tournament Games

  • Schedule will be posted on this website in January.

  • Any team cancelling after January 1, 2024 will be fined a portion or all of their tournament fee (descretion of Tournament Committee)
