Mingle Format Details:

Players must register as individuals, after which they will be drafted onto a team.  To be eligible to participate, you must be a member of the HAA. If you are not a member of the HAA, you can read the details on getting involved with the HAA [here].

Registrants will be signed up on a first paid/first served basis (meaning spots will be reserved based on when fee payment is received, not when Registration Form is received).

Players register individually and are then drafted onto a teams at a Team Managers’ draft. The draft process results in relative parity between teams and plenty of camaraderie. The details of the draft (including who was picked in what round) are sealed so as to avoid bruising or bolstering any egos.

All successfully registered players will be informed as to what team they are playing for by their respective Team Manager within a week of the draft.

Because the teams are mixed and co-ed, the tournaments have a particular appeal to players who enjoy making new friends.

The tournaments observe all regular HAA and Hockey Canada rules and regulations, incl. mandatory wearing of face protection (half-visor minimum).

Individual players are subject to the same expectations of friendly, non-abusive play as well as the same disciplinary measures as HAA organizations and functions.

Any players interested in taking on the responsibilities and duties of Team and Assistant Team Managers are encouraged to indicate that upon registration. All Team Managers should have strong organizational skills, be willing to coordinate regularly with Team-mates and other Tournament organizers.
