Canadian National Pond Hockey Championships

The Canadian National Pond Hockey Championships are held annually at the Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville, Muskoka District Municipality, Ontario, Canada.

The pond hockey variant used at the nationals plays 4 on 4 without a goalie, with two 15-minute halves and 5-minute halftime break. The winners of the three championship divisions are awarded the coveted Maple Cup.
