Parksville Panters Senior Hockey

Home of the Classic and Junket








Preparations for the 2019 Parksville Panters January Junket Tournament are underway! Priority invitations have been sent by email to the four 60+ teams, six 65+ teams, and six 70+ teams that participated in last year’s tournament. Last year’s teams will have until November 15th, 2018 to register on a priority basis for the 2019 Junket.
Once the November 15th deadline has passed, registration will be opened up to other teams that are interested in participating in the Tournament. Available spots will be assigned to these other teams before or shortly after the November 15 deadline on a first-come, first-served basis. These other teams can signal their interest anytime now by sending an email indicating your interest to:

Please send a cheque, made out to the Parksville Panters Hockey Club, for your team’s registration fee of $600 to:
Mr. Neal Wood
921 Lakes Blvd
Parksville BC, V9P 2P8

The list of teams and the game schedules should be posted on our website (click on schedule) by the end of November 2018. If there are any errors in the information posted on the website, please let us know.
We typically receive requests from teams to accommodate travel challenges (i.e. ferry boat arrival and departure times, two-hour drive times, etc.). We will do our best to accommodate these requests when formulating the tournament schedule. However, once the schedule is posted on the web site, it would be appreciated if requests for last minute schedule changes be kept to a minimum as it requires all teams involved to agree on any change.
Once your team registration is received and acknowledged, you will be asked to submit your team roster ASAP so that we can pre-populate the game sheets. You can do it on line via our web site (http://www.parksvillepanters. com/index.html). Teams that enter their rosters online before January 4th will receive 15 complimentary beer tickets in their team registration packages.


This year’s itinerary is very similar to last year including a beer garden with complimentary snacks and pizza throughout the day and of course, great senior hockey.
When you arrive on Tuesday January 8th, managers should please look for the registration table where you can pick up your team's registration package. As well, your team will be assigned an Ambassador to assist you throughout the tournament should you need any assistance.
Registration packages will include tournament schedules, 15 complimentary beer tickets for those only teams that have entered their rosters on the website by January 4th, and contact information for your Ambassador and spare coordinator.
If your team finds itself short of players, or if you know of any individuals that do not have a team, you should contact one of the Tournament

Spare Coordinators. Their contact information is shown below.
The 2019 Junket Tournament Spare Coordinators are:
60+ To Be Determined – please continue to check the website for updates on this

 Rules of Play:

The rule book of the Canadian Adult Recreational Hockey Association (CARHA) will apply.
Tournament rules include:
- the three penalty disqualification rule will apply.
- two line passes are permitted
- game sheets must be filled out and signed by team managers and include a complete roster of all players and their jersey number
- sportsmanship and safety are integral parts of old-timers hockey. Players and officials must be treated with respect both on and off the ice.
- all equipment must be CSA approved including goalie masks. Goalies using the cat-eyes style of mask/cage must complete a waiver which will be included in the registration package.
- the home team is the first team listed on the game schedule
- any questions or disputes should be directed to the tournament Troubleshooting and Dispute Resolution Sub-committee.
Games will include a 5 minute warm-up, a 22 minute stop time period, a 2 minute break between periods, a second 22 minute stop time period and then we need everyone off the ice so we can do a 15 minute flood. Depending on time remaining after the first period, the second period may be shortened slightly to keep on schedule.
All players must be of proper age as of December 31, 2019. Goalies in the 60+ and 65+ divisions can be up to 5 years younger than 60 or 65. Goalies in the 70+ division can be up to 10 years younger than 70.
Captains, please ensure that your players have been advised that they cannot play for more than one team unless a Tournament Official provides prior clearance.


Our tournament has obtained 3rd party liability insurance. Insurance for individual Parksville Panters has been acquired in conjunction with the Parksville Golden Oldies Sports Association (PGOSA). It is our understanding that CARHA members are covered by the insurance provided for its members. If your team and players are not insured as outlined above, the Parksville Panters organization encourages you to make your own arrangements.
Another update will be coming in mid-November. We are looking forward to seeing you in January.
