2020 WHAM Championship Tournament

Important and exciting news about the 2020 WHAM Championship Tournament

Our 2019-2020 WHAM season has ended and teams have qualified to compete for the championship of their division. Our end of season, intra-league tournament will take place at Dakotah Arena in Prior Lake, MN.  For the tenth year, our end of season tournament will not be sanctioned by and/or run as part of Minnesota Hockey due to WHAM's recreational league status under USA and MN Hockey.

Some important dates to remember and prepare for as we get closer to the tournament:

Important Dates

All stats must be entered into the online stat program by February 29th, 2020.

Teams qualifying for the WHAM Championship Tournament must commit to playing by noon on March 1st, 2020 (please note that after this time and date, all teams who have committed are committed to paying the full team fee of $560). Teams will be notified by Division Commissioners regarding qualification and must respond back with either a commitment to play or a decline. If teams decline the opportunity to play in the tournament, the next eligible team will be extended the opportunity.
