The 2nd annual Nomad Cup tournament is set to be held at the Boutiliers Point Community rink in Boutiliers Point, Nova Scotia. It will feature up to 20 teams in 2 divisions, 12 teams over 3 groups in the open division which is open to all, and 8 teams over 2 groups in a women’s division, playing outdoors from January 28th to 30, 2022 (with the following weekend as a backup date). All players must be 19 years of age or older at the start of the tournament.
Teams can apply to register by emailing Dustin Hall at email@example.com starting on October 30th 2021. If your application is approved, you will receive a confirmation email. Team slots will be available on a first come, first served basis, based on the time we receive application emails. ALL players must be double vaccinated and have proof of such, as well as a valid form of government ID, to participate.
2020’s tournament was an incredible success with players coming from as far away as Cape Breton, to compete and have a good time. We are expecting teams from across Atlantic Canada to be vying for spots in the tournament, and have even had international teams express interest.
Pond hockey tournaments are everywhere these days, so what sets the Nomad Cup apart? For starters, this is NOT a pond hockey tournament per se. We've included goaltenders in these outdoor games, and we're asking players to suit up like it's a league game, with full gear, to face off and play hard in this 4 on 4 format. The rink has boards and lights for evening games which offers an incredible experience unlike any other.
Teams will be able to carry 9 players on their roster plus a goalie, for a total of 10 players. The team fee is $550 per team and each team will be guaranteed 3 games and must be prepared to play as early as 5:00pm on the Friday of the tournament. We are also asking that any teams available to play earlier games on Friday to advise us, as we are looking to start action as early as 10:30am to space out games a little more to assist with covid protocols.
Part of the reason for this tournament is to raise money to help support the Boutiliers Point rink, so people can continue to enjoy an already wonderful outdoor rink, run exclusively by a group of incredible volunteers.
We will be taking precautions regarding COVID-19 to ensure the safety of all of the participants, fans, and volunteers.
To register your team, email Dustin Hall at firstname.lastname@example.org staring October 30th 2021 to secure your spot. Payments will be taken via eTransfer if your submission is approved.
