Rogers Hometown Hockey (Markham)

King Clancy and Founders Cup
All month

While some tournament competition started in late February, the King Clancy and Founders tournaments give teams an opportunity to make up for what was lost during the regular season and playoffs.

Named after a Toronto Maple Leafs legend, the King Clancy Cup is open to non-playoff “A” teams from the GTHL and MHL as well as non-playoff “AA” and “AAA” teams from the GTHL. All other teams must receive approval from tournament officials. Click here for more information on the King Clancy Cup.

If your team was eliminated during the first round of the playoffs, you will be eligible to participate in the Founders Cup. The Founders Cup is open to GTHL and MHL “A”, “AA” and “AAA” teams.
