A Note from the Director

As 2018 Grizz Cup has come to end so has my tenure as Grizz Cup Director. I Think it’s important to tell everyone Thank-you! Those who started it Rick and Board, to those who I learned from by watching and visiting with during my small volunteer part the first couple years stuffing a participation bag or sitting table and attending Board meetings, Ted, and Suzanne. The amazing co-Directors who know what it’s like that weekend working the rink for 75-80 hours in 4 days, the Board members working outlying rinks keeping them running smoothly, the volunteers working registration tables, the artists behind the scenes making programs, logos and posters, scorekeepers freezing their buts off, those referees who never make the right call except when it’s on the other team, ( says the crowd).. the teams, coaches, parents and players, the TM’s that keep it all going for their teams providing all the stuff I had to collect, the rink staff and facility operators who clean up after every game, the photographer who risks injury every game to capture that moment, Announcers who can help calm a moment by raising that volume, The other vendors who help to make it a fun experience, my employer letting me miss 3 days of work there’s too many names to list but you all know who you are, Thanks to my family who have had to share most weekends after October and pretty much every Christmas break, and who don’t see me for 4 days during the cup. It’s all of this that has made Grizz Cup The Best Hockey Tournament Ever... introducing Robyn Long and Jason Sims who will continue the tradition. Thank you and Regards, Chris

2018 Schedule

For up to the  minute results

Hello All,
First, let me say thanks in advance to all of you, your teams and parents for choosing to participate in Grizz Cup 2018!! We do our best to make this a fun tournament for everybody while at the same time offer a challenging and rigorous tournament to bring the best out in all participants.
Please understand that we did our best to accommodate special scheduling requests.  At this time of publication, the schedule has already been reviewed and approved as is by the Tourney Committee, Rinks, and On/Off Ice Officials – so it is extremely difficult to make any changes to the schedule at this time.  I hope you understand all the structure that goes into building such a schedule.

Results for all games can be found under the "2018 Results" tab at and will be updated as soon as possible following each game.  Please check here often for semi final and consolation match-ups throughout the tournament.  

             It's very hard to secure ice for a tournament of this size and we would like to thank all of the Rink facilities for accommodating the tournament.  The Rinks are all very proud of their facilities and work their hardest to keep them in World Class condition.  Please remind all participants and spectators to treat the facilities with utmost respect.  Rinks will be open at least 45 mins before the first game of the day.   Please help us with the following rink rules.  Rink locations and maps can be found under the Venue tab or here

  1. No Floor hockey is allowed inside any rink facilities
  2. Many of the facilities are Multi use centers.  Please keep players and siblings in the rink areas only, particularly at Cottonwood Heights.  Please use main level arena seats at Maverik Center, no suites or upper level should be occupied by player or spectators.
  3. Please leave a clean locker room, pickup tape and trash etc before returning the key.
  4. Lock rooms while players are on the ice.  Neither WMAHA nor the rinks are responsible for theft in locker rooms.
  5. Teams are responsible for any damages to locker rooms and/or facilities.
  6. Please have teams do their dryland/warmup outside of the facilities unless the weather is very bad.  We try to provide the best experience for spectators watching games in progress.

           Please be aware and understand them before the tournament begins.   See the Rules Tab also posted below. The website is used to disseminate information refer to the rules for all procedures.

Here are a couple keys rules to be aware of:

  1. Home Team will wear Dark Jersey
  2. 4 goal differential after the 2nd period  will result in run time clock, in addition for the 10U and 12U B divisions: a 7 goal differential during  the first period, 4 goal after the 1st and if less than 20 minutes remain at the start of the 3rd period will result in run time clock.
  3. Tournament Director will not overrule any on ice decision or penalties.
  4. Pool games will end in a tie, Points are distributed as such, 3 pts for win, 1 pt for a tie.
