Open Divisions

JUGGERNAUT DIVISION (1994/1995/1996)
This division was designed to act as a showcase for all 1994, 1995, and 1996 born players, as they are some of the most talented players in our program.  This division is limited to ONLY 1994, 1995, 1996 born players.  The only exception would be allowing a younger goaltender if absolutely neccesary to field a team.
 
There is no limit to the amount of teams allowed per state/province but all state reps MUST be approved in advance by the State Wars Hockey office.   To be considered for a state franchise the individual must officially contact State Wars Hockey by May 1.  If and once approved, the state franchise representative will receive a team packet that must be completed and received by June 1 in the State Wars Hockey office.  Each team may have up to 12 skaters and 2 goalies or a minimum of 8 skaters and 1 goalie.  Each player will receive custom designed home and away state jerseys.  The fee is $150 per player (if a team wishes to receive team pants as well, the cost is an additional $50 per player).  All payments must be received by June 1.  
 
If a player is already playing on a Junior/Senior  Division team also, the cost for the second division will only be $80 (as they will not receive another set of jerseys).
 
Residency rules: a player may play for the state they live in full time or the state where they go to college.  If a player has moved since the last State Wars event they participated in, they may still play for the home state they previously played with.  However, once a player plays for the new state they live in they must continue to do so unless they move again.  This rule applies for All open divisions.

SPECIAL NOTES
The goal of each team is to field the strongest possible state team based on the structured rules and regulations set forth. This format will allow for an even playing field. Teams typically made up of star players from several different states will not be permitted to participate and therefore every team has a fair chance to win. This format encourages players in each state to work together towards a common goal.

  • All players MUST live in the State/Province they are playing for. See the General Info page for the residency requirements.  (see above notes on residency rules as well)
  • Players 35 years of age or older may play in both Select Senior and Select Masters divisions if able.
  • Female players may play in both a youth division (if selected at their State Tryout) and the Select  Girls or Women's division if able.
  • For any player participating in the Juggernaut, Select Junior, Select Senior, Select Women's or Select Masters division as their 2nd team at STATE WARS the player fee will be $80 (as this player will only recieve one set of state jerseys).
  • If any player is interested in a spot on either a Select Junior, Select Senior, Select Women's or Select Masters team please email the State Wars Hockey office and we will forward your info to the state franchise representative.
