Frequently Asked Questions:

  • How do I register?

Call (250-953-1591) or email desiree@mustardseed.ca. Include your company/organization name, team name and contact info: name, phone, email and # of players

  • How many players do I need?

5 players + 1 goalie, up to 11 players + 1 goalie

  • Do I need to bring my own equipment?

We encourage players to bring their own equipment to the event. There’s nothing like that custom curve that only you know how to use! Gloves are also recommended. This is a non-competitive event, so safety gear like helmets, shin guards etc. are not necessary. Please note that this event is no-contact; unnecessary rough play may terminate playtime

  • What about goalies?

We ask that you bring your own stick and padding/helmet. For items available to loan, we will ask you to provide your drivers license or other ID for collateral for its safe-return.

  • Are there any age restrictions?

There are no restrictions to participate. Teams will comprise a mix of players over 16 years old. If there are enough youth under 16, a kid’s game for younger players will be available. Bring the whole family!

  • Hockey just for guys?

Of course not! We encourage co-ed teams.
