This years marks the 10th Annual King of the Wheels Roller Hockey Tournament for the FDNY. Participants are for current/retired FDNY firefighter and officers ONLY. It will once again be at Skate Safe in Old Bethpage from November 5th-16th.
Here are the details for the tournament:Each team will play one day the 1st week (round robin) and one day the 2nd week (playoffs). All teams will play 3 games the first day and at least 2 games the second day . The round robin will be played from November 5th to November 9th. Please list in order what days are best for your house on the registration form. Please indicate any days that don't work for your house that week on your registration form as well. Once the schedule is made it can't be changed. Please check on any house functions, boys night outs, weddings, ice hockey schedule and anything else that might cause a conflict.The playoffs will be held November 13th to November 17th and the day you play will be determined by how your team does in the round robin. Playoffs could be any day the week of November 12th.
With that being said the round robin games will most likely be played on Weds 11/07, Thurs 11/08 and Friday 11/09. The playoffs will most likely be played on Thurs 11/15 and Friday 11/16. I still have to get confirmation from the rink that these are the days that work best but this is what we are planning on now....THIS CAN CHANGE AS THE RINK HAS NOT CONFIRMED WHAT DAYS WE CAN USE YET!!!! It's just a heads up as to what days will be most likely used
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT GAMES COULD START AT 8AM THIS YEAR FOR BOTH ROUND ROBIN AND PLAYOFFS
