It is a goal of the NYCGHA to allow as many players as possible to play in the Chelsea Challenge.

  • A team is considered established with 10 registered skaters and a goalie, and full with 15 skaters and a goalie (though you may roster up to 16 skaters and a goalie).
  • Teams that do not reach 15 skaters and a goalie may be assigned drop-ins.

At 15 days prior to the start of the tournament, teams that do not have a full registration may be assigned players at the discretion of NYCGHA’s Chelsea Challenge Committee and are also subject to reassignment if fewer than ten players are registered. Every attempt will be made to balance the teams to ensure a competitive tournament.
