East Coast Showdown

Stay Tuned for 2017 Showcase Info!!!

In just a few short years,the wildly popular East Coast Showdown has grown into the mid-Atlantic's largest college hockey tournament.  

There's a lot to like...  

Men's & women's college hockey, high school showcases, restaurants with views of the action, teams earning points every period -- it's going to be one great show(down)!

The event typically takes place in November at IceWorks, a bustling hockey hub just outside of Philadelphia.  The facility boasts 4 rinks, a pro-shop and two restaurants.


Fans can catch the game & grab a bite at IceWorks


ONE BIG WEEKEND:
Every day of the tournament will feature 6 women's games, plus 9 DVCHC men's match-ups - a total of 45 college hockey games!

AND THE WINNER IS:
Each & every moment of Showdown hockey is an important opportunity to move ahead!  Teams earn 2 points for a win (3 for a shutout) but, importantly, 1 point for every period won (.5 points for a tie).  If a squad plays strong, they could walk away with 5 or 6 points.  Struggle, and the losing team could rack up numbers, even in a loss.  The team with the most total point will take the down crown. (Is that a thing?)
