FYHA "Class of Play" Guidelines
To ensure the best matchups and most competitive tournaments possible, we ask all teams registering for FYHA events to follow the "Class of Play" Guidelines below. If you are unsure, please contact tournaments@fargohockey.org for assistance. 

 

For teams outside of North Dakota please be sure to gauge the strength of your team before selecting the appropriate division. For example, if you are a Minnesota B2 team, you may consider both B1 and B divisions based on the projected strength of your team. 

 

If your team is from Minnesota, here are some things to consider based on our experience...

  • Outstate MN B1 teams are typically a good fit for the B1 division.
  • MN Twin Cities B2 teams are typically a good fit for the B1 division.
  • Stronger MN Twin Cities C teams are typically a good fit for the B division.   

FYHA reserves the right to move a registered team to the division we deem appropriate based on game results and competition leading up to the tournament.

Class of Play Guidelines

To ensure your team is registered for the correct division, please follow these guidelines.  Any mistake or errors made by the applicant during the registration process shall be construed against the applicant and may disqualify applicant's team(s) from a refund. If necessary, FYHA holds the right to move a registered team to the division we deem appropriate based on game results and competition leading up to the tournament.

TEAM FEE
The Fargo Youth Hockey Association has combined the registration fee and gate fee into one price to create efficiencies for tournament operations and the teams participating. The fee listed in the chart above is the total team fee to participate in our tournament. Team fee must be paid in US dollars. The Team Fee must be paid in order for a team to be accepted into our tournament. For the Squirt International tournaments the Team Fee must be paid by Oct. 12th in order for a team to be considered for the selection process.

 

TOURNAMENT START TIMES
The 3 Squirt International tournaments begin tournament play on Friday morning with a special event on the Thursday prior to tournament play.

 

HOTEL INFORMATION
The Fargo Youth Hockey Association has partnered with the F-M Convention and Visitors Bureau to be our housing bureau for our 8 stay-to-play hockey tournaments. With the exception of the teams registering for our Squirt International tournaments, all teams who have paid their registration fee(s) in full will receive a link of available hotels for each tournament weekend.

The Squirt International hockey tournaments have a selection process so hotel information will be sent out to teams after the selections have been announced in October.  In order for teams to be considered in the Squirt International selection process they must have their team fee paid in full by October 12, 2021. Teams will receive the housing information based on when they registered for the tournament(s).

What does Stay-to-Play mean?
We require all teams registered in our hockey tournaments to work with our local housing bureau, the F-M Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) to select their hotel for the tournament. Those teams who do not abide by this will not be allowed to play. The FYHA Tournament Committee will be auditing hotel rooming lists for violations.

Why we host Stay-to-Play Tournaments:
By partnering with our local F-M CVB we are able to provide the incoming teams a great experience with negotiated group rates and a guaranteed room block. Our community plays host to other large sporting events, concerts and conventions and by working with the CVB we are able to secure rooms for each team participating in our tournament. They take the headaches out of group reservations and will work with you to create the best experience possible. The F-M CVB has a well-trained and friendly staff who are ready and eager to assist you and your team with your housing needs. 

 

ATHLETIC TRAINERS
Athletic Trainers will be on site for CHECKING tournaments only. An emergency medical plan will be available at each rink’s score table.

 

CANCELLATION POLICY
Once you have received an email confirmation that your team has been officially accepted into the tournament, there is a 48 hour cancellation policy. If you withdraw your team within this 48 hour window, 100% of your registration fee will be refunded. However, if you withdraw from the tournament after the 48 hour window for any reason, your registration fee will not be refunded. 

This policy is to ensure that teams on the ‘waitlist’ have a reasonable amount of time to plan and make necessary travel arrangements if a team chooses to withdraw from the tournament.
