The tournament will take place from Dec. 28 to Dec. 30, 2024, with all games taking place in one facility at the state-of-the-art WFCU Centre in Windsor.

Our longstanding, annual tournament has hosted dozens of international teams over the years, including Canada, the US states of Michigan, Ohio, New York, Illinois, North Carolina, California, Missouri, Kentucky, Virginia and Pennsylvania and from Sweden (our first European team in 1989), Great Britain, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Czechia, and Slovakia.

Players and Team Officials eat for free while at the tournament.  We serve home cooked meals each day of the tournament.  Fans/parents may also eat for a nominal fee (2023 was $3 per person per meal).  The kitchen is open Dec. 28/29 from 10 am to 6 pm and on Dec. 30 from 10 am to 3pm.  The 2023 menu was:  Dec. 28 – homemade lasagna, Dec. 29 – chili dogs and pizza and our famous Egg McRangers on Dec. 30.  Teams would be responsible for their own meals outside of those ours at their own expense.

Teams are guaranteed four games, regardless of advancing to semi-finals/championships.  Champions and Finalists in each division receive medals and a take-home trophy.  There are also three individual awards for MVP of the (entire) tournament (Guy Morgan Award), Coach of the (entire) tournament (Art McKenzie Award) and Goalie of the tournament (for each division – Randy Schuchard Awards).

Entry fee is $1550 (Canadian Dollars).

Teams flying in can either fly to Toronto’s Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and then either travel again by plane to Windsor Airport or by an approximately four-hour bus ride to Windsor, or fly into Detroit-Wayne County International Airport (DTW) in the US and then bus across the border (approx. 30-minute drive to Windsor).

There are a variety of hotels in the area for coaches/parents etc. at reasonable prices.
