At The Tournament

Welcome to the CAN/AM Challenge Cup in exciting Madison, WI. Your ultimate Tournament experience is finally about to begin. In order to help you plan the greatest Tournament weekend ever, we wanted to give you an idea of what you can expect at the Tournament and in Madison.  You leave the planning to us, and concentrate on having the ultimate hockey weekend!

As families and players arrive in Madison, they will check in directly at their hotel. Once families are checked in to their room, it’s time to check out Madison. Everyone’s first stop is likely Capitol Ice Arena, the coolest place in town!

The headquarters for the Tournament will be in the Lobby of Capitol Ice Arena. Here you will find posted standings, locker room assignments, souvenirs, photos, and as always, the friendly CAN/AM Staff. Tournament Central is where your Team Rep will register before your first game.  Your Team Rep will receive tournament programs as well as special player souvenirs for each player.

Games will be played at Capitol Ice Arena (Verona and McFarland Ice Arenas as possible overflow rinks). Your game schedule will be available about one week prior to the Tournament Date.  All teams are guaranteed 4 games.  The games begin on Friday at 7:30 AM.  After the round-robin games are completed, the four top teams in each division will proceed to the Sunday Medal Championship games. By Saturday night, Medal matchups for your division will be set. Will your team have what it takes to make it to a Medal Game on Sunday morning? The Gold, Silver and Bronze Medal Games will be completed by 2:00 PM on Sunday. 

In all Divisions, Gold, Silver, and Bronze CAN/AM Championship medals will be awarded to each player. A special Challenge Cup Championship plaque as well as a first place CAN/AM banner to hang in their home arena will be awarded to all Gold Medal teams.

During the weekend, the CAN/AM Staff is always available for you. There is always a helpful staff member to guide you where to go, answer questions, make suggestions, assist your players and guests, even lock and unlock your team's dressing room door! Our goal is to help you get the most out of this special hockey holiday weekend, no matter what happens on the ice. Our goal is to provide an unmatched hockey experience for your team. The Challenge Cup is a professional event for amateur players. That is why so many teams choose to make this CAN/AM Girls Challenge Cup Tournament an annual event! We look forward to hosting your team in Madison.
