Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Can I play on the same team with my friends?
Typically we will elect captains of each team and there will be a draft that takes place. The goal is to ensure both teams are evenly matched and in the event that one team is stronger there is a potential for in game trades 🙂 It will be super fun and we always ensure everyone has a good time.
2. What colour of jersey do I need?
Please bring both a black and a white jersey. We are trying to find enough sponsors to cover custom jerseys for the players. Just in case bring your own.
3. Can beginner players play?
Yes beginner players can play. We organize the teams so that it creates a fair and fun environment for everyone!
4. How long is Ignite Cup?
The whole event will take place on Saturday September 24, 2016. The event will be broken down into 2 games. Each Game will have 3 periods (12 minutes stop time). If we are running short of time the clock will be dropped in the third period.
5. Will there be prizes?
Yes of course. We are working on some cool prizes for game MVP and a few others.
6. Will there be refreshments after Ignite Cup?
yes we are working on this normally we get together at a local pub in the rink. If all goes well we will have some sponsorship in place to have all of this provided.
7. Will transportation to and from the rink be provided?
Yes we are working on getting a Bus to and from the rink. Worst case we make our own way to the Rink like a normal game. Priority is given to the players and the remaining seats will be allocated accordingly. There will be a separate registration list for the bus.
8. Are Sponsorship opportunities available?
Yes of course. These events are community run and the goal is to ensure enough funds are available that it will remain a free event. So if you or your company can help us out that would be greatly appreciated.
9. Team Pictures?
We always get some team pictures at the end of the game. If you have friends coming to watch encourage everyone to take pictures.
