Championship Games & Wrap Up


Getting There: Arriving at Toronto Airport, we recommend to book for Thursday morning arrivals. Travelling from Toronto to Niagara Falls is busy at any time of day, but leaving for Niagara Falls from Toronto after 3:30 pm will result in major traffic delays during rush-hour traffic.  Final games will be played late Monday afternoon. And remember it's approximately 1 1/2 hour drive back to Toronto Airport. So we recommend booking departing flights for Tuesday morning.

Team Roster and tournament Fee Due in SPN office March 1, 2001

The tournament check in for all teams will be on Thursday, August 2 at 7:00 pm and opening ceremonies will take place shortly after that.  Tournament play begins on Friday morning at 9:00 am and runs through the weekend with the championship games taking place on Monday, August 6.  A number of events are planned throughout the weekend for the teams to enjoy and meet other tournament participants from across Canada.

Teams will be offered a minimum of 5 games.  There will be a preliminary round and advancement to a modified double elimination championship round.  The number of teams advancing, will depend on the number of entries.
