This is our first update for the 2017-18 season.  We are in the process of creating a new and up to date website.  The webiste will provide for electronic registration, payment, hotel regirstion, and more.  The website will simplify the application process and provide you necessary and interesting information about the tournaments.  


The official dates for the tournaments are Crabtown Showdown December 29-31, 2017, Capital Showdown March 9-11, 2018, and Country & Western Showdown March 2-4, 2018.  We will continue to use the Centennial Sportsplex and Ford Ice Center.  We do not plan to host a second weekend this year for Country & Western and will resume the AA and AAA divisions once the third rink is built in Nashville.  To guarantee a spot for Country & Western it will be important for your team to register sooner than the deadline given these circumstances.  We recommend summer to early fall to register.


Regarding Nashville hotels, demand is still extremely high in Nashville.  Many groups are booking 2-5 years in advance as hotels space is limited and rates are at an all time high. We plan to be around the same rates as last year betweeen $159-$179 plus taxes. We are in the process of securing rooms now for next year.
