Thank You to Our 2023 G4H Jam Sponsors!
In partnership with Sisters of Anarchy Ice Cream and Fisher Brothers Farm, G4H is excited to host the 2nd Annual G4H Jam Pond Hockey Tournament! This one-day tournament is a fun-filled day dedicated to celebrating girls/women's ice hockey and what G4H is all about! Though G4H is not a non-profit, proceeds from the tournament will support G4H grow the game initiatives.

When: Sunday, February 19, 2023
Games for each division will be back to back. Games can be anywhere from 8:30am - 4:30pm depending on number of sign ups and division. Advanced Adult divisions typically skate in the morning with Novice Adult and 14U/High School Divisions skating in the afternoon.
Where: ***2023's event has been moved indoors due to weather/ice conditions. The event will now take place at Leddy Park Arena in Burlington, VT***
Sisters of Anarchy Ice Cream/Fisher Brothers Farm
4947 Spear Street, Shelburne, VT
Who: Girls, women, and non-binary individualsages 13 - Adult who want to get out and play! We will be hosting divisions for 14U/High School, Novice Adult, Advanced Adult (more information below). If you do not fall into the above categories, you are welcome to come cheer on teams and/or free skate as we will have one portion of the ice available for open skate. We are also looking for volunteers! Please see below for more information.
Why: For fun!
Before indoor rinks, hockey was played outside! Let's get back to our roots and enjoy some of the incredible natural ice that VT winters provide!
Extras: Food trucks (TBA) will be present with food for sale for participants & spectators! We will also have multiple fire pits, snacks for sale, and G4H gear available for purchase. Spectators are welcome to bring their skates and skate in the "free skate"area. Those watching games and hoping for a seat should plan to bring their own folding chair.
How It Works
Participants may register as a team or as a "free agent". Teams can be as few as 4 or as many as 6 players. Free agents will be added to teams who have expressed interest in accepting level-appropriate free agents to fill out their roster.
Each team is guaranteed four games - three round robin games and one divisional playoff game (championship or consolation). G4H will provide jerseys (to keep!) for each team/team member. Winners of each division will also receive a G4H Jam t-shirt and delicious ice cream courtesy of our partners at Sisters of Anarchy!
Each game will be 20 minutes in length, split into two 10-minute halves with a 2 minute break in between to switch ends, do ice maintenance, etc. There will be an 8+ min break in between each game (length will depend on number of teams) to rest, regroup, grab a snack, change "rinks" and get ready for the next segment. Games for each division will be played in a max 3-4 hour window with each team likely playing back to back games.
With this set up, each division will be completed within that 3-4 hour max window, leaving room to watch or volunteer at other divisional games, to enjoy some food on site, or to head home and prepare for the week ahead.

Cost & Registration
The G4H Jam participants must be 13+ and identify as female or non-binary. All participants are required to bring and wear their own helmets (with cage highly recommended), skates, gloves, and sticks. Organized hockey experience is NOT required for all team members in the 14U/High School division or for the Novice Adult Division.
Participants may register as a "free agent" or may register as part of a team. Free agents will be placed on a team with other free agents or with teams who have noted that they are looking for others to fill their roster spots. Teams need one team contact who will register the team, then will be sent a link to a waiver that needs to be filled out for each individual player.
$65 for Free Agents
$375 for Teams (4-6 players)
In addition to the 4 game guarantee, participants will receive a G4H Jam tournament jersey, and a "welcome pack" at registration. Winning teams receive a G4H Jam t-shirt and ice cream courtesy of our partners at Sisters of Anarchy!
If you are planning to register a team, you will be asked to pay the full amount. Team members will then need to go online and fill out a brief registration and waiver.
Registration Deadline: Sunday, February 12th**
**FREE AGENT SPACES STLL AVAILABLE** Registration will remain open through Sat, Feb 18
With the change in location, will confirm team schedules by Friday, February 17th
In the event of severe inclement weather, unusable ice (or no ice...), etc. we plan to move the event indoors to play cross-ice "pond hockey" at one of our local rinks. Please note that cold, rain, and snow will not automatically cause a change in location. Any changes to the event location will be sent via email to all participants registered and team captains will be notified.
