At least 30 days prior to the event taking place, the applicant MUST:

  1. Send a copy of the sanction permit and a list of officials to be used at the event to the Officiating Coordinator. Only BC Hockey certified officials are to be used.  Failure to comply may result in disciplinary action.
  2. It is the Tournament Hosts responsibility to verify that all participating teams are properly registered and sanctioned with  their appropriate Branch or Federation.   Please contact the BC Hockey office should you require any assistance.
  3. Ensure that all administrative aspects of the tournament comply with BC Hockey Regulations. Any association that has been granted a Tournament Sanction Permit and subsequently contracts out the organization of that tournament to a third party, shall be responsible for ensuring that the tournament complies with BC Hockey Regulations. Any association allowing non-members to participate in an BC Hockey Sanctioned Tournament will be subject to disciplinary action.

Please keep a copy of the Tournament / Jamboree Sanction Permit for the Host Association’s records.

Tournament / Jamboree Sanctions are granted under the provisions that all BC Hockey and Hockey Canada regulations are adhered to.

Sanctioned BC Hockey tournaments are posted on the BC Hockey website. To print a copy of the Tournament / Jamboree Sanction Permit, click on the permit number displayed on the website.
