Ask the Official: What should I do about over-age players at a tournament?

By Dave Zednik, IHOA VP of Rules & Ethics

QUESTION: Our PeeWee team recently played in a hockey tournament. On day 2 of the tournament we found out that the winning team had played over-aged players on the team and obviously won due to the older players’ skill. What should we do in this situation?

ANSWER: We recommend bringing this issue to the Tournament Director as they are the governing body of the event and oversee the eligibility of teams.
