Parksville Panters Senior Hockey

Home of the Classic and Junket








Preparations for the 2019 Parksville Panters January Junket Tournament are nearing completion. The tournament schedule is now available on the website. This year we will have four 60+ teams, four 65+ teams, and four 70+ teams participating in the Junket tournament.

If there are any errors in the information posted on the website, please let us know. The slight reduction in the number of teams participating this year has allowed a later start time in the mornings (9:30 am) and earlier finish times in the afternoon (4:30 pm).

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 finalizing the tournament schedule. However, now that 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.

If you have not already done so, please register your team on-line via our web site ( and then enter your team roster on-line ASAP so that we can pre-populate the game sheets. Teams that enter their rosters online before January 4th will receive 15 complimentary beer tickets in their team registration packages.

If you have already mailed your registration fees ($600) to Mr. Neal Wood, that is great. If you have not yet mailed your registration fees, and given the current challenges with Canada Post, please bring a cheque for your team’s fees to the team registration table in the lobby of Oceanside Arena on January 8th. Cheques should be made out to the Parksville Panters Hockey Club.


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. Complimentary coffee and hot chocolate will be served at the arena concession stand.

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 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+ Joe MacDougall (204-730-2522)
65+ Darryl Smith (250-228-3070)
70+ Bob Fergusson (250-752-4809)

If teams have two sets of jerseys, they are encouraged to bring them both. The Tournament Committee will have a spare set of white jerseys and black jerseys for those teams that do not have two sets. Teams are also advised to bring a padlock for the dressing room. Pucks will be provided for the warm-up and game.

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.

We appreciate your participation in our senior hockey tournament, and we are looking forward to seeing you in January.
