Be sure to work through your TEAM MANAGERS as Teams may have other information or requirements. The following is some general information to assist, but if in doubt, ask your team manager.

- BORDER CROSSING DOCUMENTS. As a general rule, all adults need passports and minors need a birth certificate (a passport is easier, if they have one) and possibly more if they are not travelling with both parents. See links below:

USA: https://www.cbp.gov/travel/us-citizens/western-hemisphere-travel-initiative

CANADA: http://can-am.gc.ca/consular_services_consulaires/border-frontiere.aspx

Any players planning to travel on a foreign passport, please notify your Team Manager immediately.

Prohibited at Canadian Border:
Prohibited at USA Border:

Consent Letter: The consent letter for Whitehorse Exchange is HERE. This letter covers border crossings and also medical release issues which have been recommended for any treatment in Canada. Based on direct discussions with Customs & Border Protection (CBP) at the Canadian border, they suggest that the forms be notarized, but are not required. If a Notary cannot find room on the front, they can notarize the back of the letter. Note: Notarization is less of an issue when the child is travelling with the Group.

JSC has contracted with the same Yukon bus company to provide transporation for the core group (players, coaches) to and from Whitehorse.

Payment for Bus, Allen Marine, Tournament Fee, Team Hotel costs will be through the Team. AMHS Ferry costs for players through the Team. Non-player AMHS should be paid directly to AMHS. If you have not reserved a space for non-players, do so immediately.

Estimates for Hotel, Team Expenses, etc: Please contact your Team Manager or Travel Coordinator

Due to the change to AMHS Ferry, we will be relaxing the GROUP travel requirements for this year. Players and Coaches travelling North with the Group on Friday 07 APR will be booked via JSC reservation. All others should make their own reservations for transport on AMHS.

Travelling South on Allen Marine, reservations will be made via Team Managers/Coordinators to JSC and we will be posting a confirmation list, once finalized. Any AMHS travel on Monday needs to be made by the people travelling.

We are updating the policy document and will post in the next few days. Discussion and more detailed information can be found in the linked document HERE.

If you are interested in being on the Tournament Committee or just want to lend a hand on one of the tasks, please contact the tournament director - Carl Ferlauto at cferlauto@hecla-mining.com.
