Each team will play 4-5 Jamborees culminating in an end-of-season event that will follow a similar format.
Jamboree games will be played using the same rules that currently apply to regular half-ice games with two exceptions: Officials will be provided, and instead of two games being played at once on the ice, only one game will be played at a time. Each team will play 2-3 games per Jamboree. Gameplay rules are as follows:
The rink does not supply pucks, so both the home and away teams are encouraged to bring pucks for each game.
