Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to participate?
The registration fee is $350 per individual.
This covers the cost of your participation in:
- Draft Night, including food & drinks
- Tournament play, including ice times, personalized jerseys, sock tape, hockey tape and hydrating drinks
- Player lounge food & drinks
How many players can be on a team?
In 2023, we have a limit of 17 individuals permitted on a team roster.
This includes your goalie, skaters and any non-playing team members (ie coaches & managers).
Teams have until July 31 to have a minimum of 10 individuals confirmed on their team (non-playing members included).
If this deadline is not met, we will reach out with options to add individual waitlisted players or combine rosters with a waitlisted team.
Who can register for the CAN Pro-Am?
Due to overwhelming interest, the 2023 tournament is open to returning teams only.
If you are interested in joining our waitlist for new individuals or teams, please fill out our 2023 Waitlist Form.
Is there a minimum age for participation?
Players and non-playing team members must be at least 18 years of age.
How much is each team expected to fundraise?
Teams must raise a minimum of $25,000.
The CAN Pro-Am is a charity tournament in support of Canucks Autism Network (CAN). Funds raised from the event support CAN's programming, training and community engagement initiatives across BC and beyond. The $25,000 minimum fundraising amount works out to about $1,500 per player (assuming a 17 player roster).
What happens if my team doesn't raise the minimum required amount?
Your team will still play in the tournament. However, your team will not be able to attend Draft Night, and will not have any alumni on your team at the tournament.
How can my team fundraise $25,000?
Please visit our Fundraising Tips page for a number of different ways your team can meet and exceed your goal!
What is the fundraising deadline?
Fundraising typically ends 5-10 days before Draft Night. In 2023, the fundraising deadline is 12am on Nov 1 (PST).
This gives us enough time to finalize the standings and set the draft order for Draft Night.
How many games does each team get?
Teams will play three games each over the course of the two-day tournament.
Our top 22 fundraisers (20 skaters & 2 goalies) will also be invited to participate in the CAN Pro-Am All-Star Game.
Which NHL Alumni are participating?
Visit our NHL Alumni webpage to see which players are confirmed!
Each team will draft one NHL Alumni onto their roster for the weekend. Teams will draft NHL Alumni in the order of their final fundraising rankings.
What is the level of play (ie. skill level) in the tournament?
The CAN Pro-Am features a wide range of skill levels.
Each player is asked to provide their skill level during registration. This allows us to assess each team's overall skill level and attempt to group teams together accordingly.
