The Meijer State Games of Michigan is an Olympic style event with over 50 events offered to our participants and fans. Our Hockey tournaments consist of 12U, 14U, 16U, 19U Women and High School Divisions.
Eight geographically based teams in each division will come together at the Meijer State Games of Michigan to compete for Gold, Silver and Bronze medals.
Each team will play a minimum of four (4) games beginning Thursday evening, with one game Thursday, one game Friday (plus State Games Opening Ceremonies Friday evening), two games Saturday, concluding with the medal games on Sunday. All players are asked to attend the State Games of Michigan Opening Ceremonies at Fifth Third Ballpark on Friday evening, and walk in the Parade of Athletes.
All games are played to a conclusion with a guaranteed winner through an overtime formula. There are NO ties. The top two teams in each division make the semi-finals to determine who will play for the Gold Medal, however, all semi-finalists are guaranteed to play on Sunday for a medal.
