Complete challenges. Climb the leaderboard. Win a spot in the Skills Gauntlet.

In the First Period, we split the teams into two divisions – and it’s all about completing challenges. That’s how you’ll prove just how much you want to be the Leafs for a day. Some challenges are online, some are on the ice. Some are pretty easy, some are more of a challenge. All of them need to be crushed, because that’s how you earn points and win a trip to the Skills Gauntlet.

Q: Why is the contest only open to certain teams?

A: Eligibility is based on a team’s age division and location of home arena. This year, the contest will only be open to the Bantam hockey team division with home arenas in the province of Ontario. If you’re not in this age division or reside within the province of Ontario, please check back next year!

Q: Are girls teams allowed?

A: Absolutely. Girls can bring it on the rink just as hard as the boys.

Q: Do I need a Facebook account to participate?

A: No, a Facebook account is not required to sign up and complete challenges. But for those who do have an account, you can use Facebook to share your progress and invite other teams to Storm The Centre.

Q: Can I sign up my team if I’m not a coach?

A: No. For this competition, we’re limiting the signup ability to coaches to eliminate the possibility of the same team being signed up multiple times. Tell your coach to go here to enter.

Q: When the competition begins, how will I sign into my team profile?

A: In the confirmation email we will send your team on October 30th, it will have a temporary password that you can use to log-into the site. After your first log-in you will be able to change that password.


Q: How do I know if I won the Maple Leafs tickets and how were the two winning teams chosen?

A: Two teams will randomly be chosen from all the teams that completed 5 challenges before Oct 13. The winners will be notified via the email address that they provided during registration.

Q: Why are there different Divisions on the Leaderboard?

A: While Storm The Centre is a competition, we realize there is a wide range of skill levels represented in the Bantam division. Dividing the competition into two divisions helps make the Skills Gauntlet a more enjoyable event for everyone involved.

Q: Does my team automatically advance to the next round if we complete all of the challenges?

A: Not necessarily, although the more challenges you complete, the better the odds. The point totals are based on the quality and amount of challenges you upload, as well as the amount of Fan Support you receive.

Q: What happens if there's a tie for 5th place at the end of the First Period?

A: The tiebreaker will be the amount of challenges that a team earns the full 100 points in. The team with the most 100-point challenges moves on.

Q: What happens if my team can't attend the Skills Gauntlet?

A: In the event that your team cannot make it, we will unfortunately have to choose a replacement team. If you have any concerns about this, please contact us at captain@stormthecentre.ca.
