We are excited to host your teams on Jan 30-31 at Shakopee High School.  All teams will be playing 2 games in a single day (either Saturday or Sunday).  The Eden Prairie tourney and Winter Shootout have been merged to allow all teams to play during the weekend.  If you registered for both, you will play both Saturday and Sunday, a total of 4 games.  All teams/parents must enter via the main Shakopee High School Entrance (Door #1) on the EAST side of the school (see attached picture).  Shakopee is allowing 10 adults and 2 coaches per team to attend for a max of 12 per team. 

Please review all information below and forward to coaches/parents that will be participating:

IMPORTANT: 
Each team should have a coach/team parent come to the admissions table located inside Door #1 30-45 minutes before the start of your first game to pick-up wristbands which must be worn by adults while in the facility.  There is no gate fee for the weekend. 

  • Each team is REQUIRED to have one parent keep the official book or clock at the scoretable.  Please have that person designated in advance
