Friday, March 16 - 2018 Allstar Information

Evaluations will be held in the first week of June. Practices will be held once the teams have been made. All-star play will begin this year with the Canada day tournament played in Airdrie. Teams will play on weekends and All-stars will run until the August long weekend. These are competitive teams so there will be multiple practices over the week. Travel may be in Calgary, Lethbridge, Edmonton, Medicine Hat with other possibilities of host teams. Weekend play will be set up as a 4 game tournament held at 1 location. Depending on how the teams may do, Regina Saskatchewan holds the seasons final tournament for the top teams. In total there is 6 weekends of play. We are hosting 1 tournament and hoping for a second. There is 1 buy weekend with no play so this leaves 3 weekends. There should be at least 1 weekend of play in Calgary, so possible 2 weekends on the road. This is not set in stone, but should give a good idea of team expectations.
