BFit Heroes Cup Hockey Tournament

Fri June 9 - Sun June 11, 2023 Marlborough, MA 01752 US Directions


Civilian position:

Each team will be allowed 1 rostered civilian, that is the only civilian allowed to play for the tournament. You may use this civilian as a skater or a goalie, but only one civilian is allowed on a roster. 

There will be spot checking done of teams throughout the tournament, please keep a valid form of identification with you to your designated occupation (Fire, Police, Military, EMS). The Captain or coach will identify who is the rostered civilian for each team.

In the event a team is found to have more than one civilian playing during the tournament, than that team will forfeit the game they are in violation for. 

Prior to all playoff and championship games, all teams will be checked by a Hero’s Cup Foundation Board member to assure compliance with these rules. 


All teams must upload their rosters on to Game Sheet prior to puck drop of game 1 of the tournament, not game one of individual teams,  no adjustments will be allowed after this time. All members of the team who may possibly play should be listed on the roster. Your civilian must be identified on the roster. Prior to each game the captain or coach will then use the Ipad assigned to the rink/scorekeeper to mark the members present for the game, this will assure that all skaters are fully accounted for.
