PARKING AT HERSHEYPARK ARENA / GIANT CENTER :  

  • Hersheypark Arena:  When arriving at the Hershey Entertainment Complex on Park Blvd, you will need to go through the parking gates as if you are going into the main parking lot.  The parking attendant booths may be active.  If they are, simply advise the attendant that you are going to Hersheypark Arena for the hockey tournament. Follow the entrance lanes around, in front of Giant Center, following the signs to Hersheypark Stadium/Arena/Hersheypark. It will seem as though you are exiting the complex.  The Hersheypark Arena is the tan domed building back behind the Stadium on the right. Parking is available in front of the building. Players and spectators should enter through Box Office #4. Walk around the concourse to the stairway behind sections 9 and 10 to access the locker rooms.
  • Giant Center: When arriving at the Hershey Entertainment Complex on Park Blvd, stay in the far right lane to enter the parking lot on the street side of the Giant Center.  Turn right at the Silver Security Guard Booth. Park in either lot and enter the Giant Center through the Player/Media Entrance on the lower level.  When leaving the Giant Center parking lot, stay in the lanes without gates which will get you into the main flow of traffic to exit the complex (this will wrap around over by Hersheypark and the Stadium).  If you would happen to end up in a lane with a parking booth attendant, just let them know you were playing hockey at the Giant Center and looking to exit.


HOME/AWAY JERSEYS:  Please be prepared with both a dark and light jersey. The designated Home team on the schedule will wear white (or light) jersey, the designated Away team on the schedule will wear a dark jersey. If your team only has one jersey, please contact the manager/coach of the team you are playing to decide which color they should wear. During consolation, semi-finals, and Championship games, the higher seed will be designated as the home team with the lower seed as the away team.

PENALTY BOX ATTENDANTS: Each team is required to have a coach/parent in their respective penalty box to assist with opening/closing of the penalty box door.


ON-SITE CHECK-IN:  There will be a registration table located at each rink.  Please make sure that all team managers visit the table prior to their first game of the tournament to receive their complimentary box of Hershey's chocolate. ALL players (excluding mites) will have to sign their team's USA Hockey Roster prior to their first game on Friday. This is the only time players will have to sign-in.

ROSTER STICKERS: Please bring "roster stickers" for the scores sheets- enough for 4, 5, or 6 games depending on your division x 3 stickers per game. MITES are excluded.

COACHES/MANAGERS:  Coaches MUST sign the score sheet after the game & take a copy for your record. 


TOURNAMENT APPAREL:  Tournament apparel will be available for sale at each main rink registration table.  Limited sizes and quantities are available so purchase early before they sell out!  Any team that pre-ordered apparel may pick up their order at the rink location of their 1st game on Friday.  Please have the team manager from the team pick up the order, as it will be bagged and labeled by team.  Before leaving the table, please check each for accuracy, as we cannot guarantee size replacements one you leave. 
 
PHOTOGRAPHY:  CARMO Photography will be taking pictures throughout the tournament. They will have tables set-up at Twin Ponds East and Klick Lewis Arena to view and purchase in-game photos on the spot. "TEAM" photo discs are also available for the tournament.  Be sure to check in with the photographers table for your first game!  http://carmophotography.com   
 
GAME TIMES:  Due to the tight tournament schedule, please make sure your team is ready to play 15 minutes prior to their scheduled game time.
 
HOTELS:  Be sure to keep your players supervised at all times while at the Hotels!  We had an incident at a recent tournament where the Police were called. Any hotel issues will result in tournament sanctions and possible dismissal. 


SCHEDULE & SCORES: The online schedule will be updated throughout the entire tournament as games finish. Please bookmark the schedule on your smart phone or computer for easy access. Click here to view a cheat sheet on how to view the schedule and scores.
