New Team Registration Opens October 1st, 2018
ATTENTION all benders, Jonny Hustles, Clapper Christinas, Doug Glatts and Debby Danglers of the world: the Yeti Cup awaits your arrival. It will be the most fun you'll have all winter! The Frostbite Face-Off is the hockey players' alternative to a ski weekend away. Register now!
Frostbite Face-Off is a 21+ men's and women's pond hockey tournament at the Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee, Vermont. Lake Morey has state of the art equipment, including zambonis, so you can count on high quality ice all weekend. A fantastic feature of our location is that the hotel is right next to the rinks where games are played; additionally, all important amenities are onsite (restaurant, bar, pool, hot tub and more). You won't need to leave the resort all weekend! The resort is located right on Lake Morey, so you will be able to walk right from the resort onto the rinks. Additionally, there will be sponsored theme parties (including the infamous onesie theme party) at the hotel on Friday and Saturday night.
Please register your team for the division that fits your skill level. Pond hockey is all about having those great locker room guys or gals - so ALL skill levels are welcome. Yeti (A Division) and Sasquatch Divisions (B/C Division and D Division teams) will be placed based on overall team experience. Co-ed teams should enter the open division, and please be aware of your overall team level when choosing your level of play. The women's Division are separated by skill level, similar to the Men's divisions. We will consolidate or expand divisions based on the skill level of the teams. If you have a question on your level of skill, please see the bottom of this page for further direction, or please contact us. We will make final determinations based on your responses on the registration form and in consultation with your team captain.
PS: Don't worry if you're a bender. Own it. No one is going to remember the good teams, they will remember the team that carved out water front property in their opponents heads, despite being down 21-0 5 minutes into the game. Create your legendary weekend, and have everyone walking away saying, I can't wait to chirp those guys or gals next year.
