The Founders Cup is open to GTHL and MHL ‘A’, ‘AA’ and ‘AAA’ teams eliminated from the first round of the playoffs. All other teams must be cleared by tournament officials. The Founders Cup follows in the great tradition of the King Clancy Tournament and will start within one week of a team being eliminated from the playoffs. All players on these teams must have been registered on a 2014-15 official registration form and may only be registered with one (1) Founders Cup team.
NOTE: Founders and King Clancy are separate tournaments therefore teams cannot crossover between the two.
Please click the "2015 Founders Cup Application" link above to submit your team's application and tournament fee ($1450.00). If a team is registered into the Founders Cup then makes it past the first playoff round, payment is refunded*.
Per standard GTHL policy, please ensure that your club GM also submits a Tournament Approval Form online.
Tournament format is based on the number of teams that enter within a division. Format will be posted prior to the first day of games.
* Teams that withdraw from the tournament up to and including Jan. 31, 2014, for reasons other than moving past the first playoff round, will be charged a $25.00 fee. After this date, all teams that withdraw for reasons other than moving past the first playoff round will forfeit the full $1450.00 registration fee.
If a team is registered into the Founders Cup then proceeds past the first playoff round, payment is refunded without penalt.
