The AAA Spring Classic is proud to bring you our AAA Hockey Tournament. This Youth Hockey Tournament features full “NHL” style games. By that we mean, 60 MINUTE STOP TIME GAMES. Each game in the tournament consists of 3 twenty-minute stop time periods. Our exclusive hockey scheduling system, ensure games start on time. Because of this only in case of extreme emergencies (Zamboni, blowing up) do we ever drop the clock. Full games mean – full hockey games. The only other exception might be: At the beginning or any time during the third period, if the goal differential is more than 6 goals, if both coaches agree, the clock will be put to run time. The playoffs in this tournament provides adequate time for overtime if required. See Tournament Rules for overtime format.
