Registration Information


If you have ever wanted to participate in the Meijer State Games of Michigan hockey tournament, 2018 is your time to shine. 

NEW in 2018 - 

Due to lower than expected registration numbers, the Meijer State Games will not be hosting tryouts statewide. Anyone that registers for an age group will be placed on a team. If you have already attended a tryout, you will still be placed on a team.


*NOTE* The 'boys' events are  technically co-ed events, but played under USAH/MAHA Boy's rules - meaning FULL CONTACT in some divisions. If you are registering a female player that does not wish to play full contact, please register for one of the Girls events.

Registration Fees:

$55        deposit to secure yourself a spot on a team.
$100   each player will be asked to pay an additional team fee

*Registration fees include: Official 2018 Meijer State Games game jersey, performance shirt as well as other giveaways (updated as the events draws closer). If you have already registered for a previous tryout, then your tryout fee IS your deposit.
