Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I sign up? Register to play at Five Hole for Food by heading to and signing up to play in your city.

How many people do I need on my team? There is no maximum size for a team. However, we require teams to have at least 5 players and 1 goalie.

Do I need to bring my own stick? We encourage players to bring their own equipment to the event. There’s nothing quite like that custom curve that only you know how to use. In the event of emergencies, we will have some extra sticks for people. The same goes for goalies. Please bring your own gear, but we will have extra sets of gear available.

Do we have to provide our own goalie? All teams will need to provide their own goalies. There are no extra goalies to join teams on an adhoc basis.

Do you need helmets/gloves/shin pads etc.? At the minimum, we ask people to bring their own hockey sticks and if you would like to play with gloves, those too. The type of hockey we play is not meant to be extremely competitive, so helmets, shin guards, mouth guards and eye-wear are not necessary.

Are there any age restrictions? There is no age restriction to participate. There will be a kids game where younger players can enjoy some ball hockey. All teams will be a general mix of players over the age of 16.

Are teams mixed gender? Mixed teams of men and women are allowed, but not mandatory.

How much do I need to donate? This event is designed to support local food banks across Canada. We ask all participants to bring a donation but we leave the amount up to you. It can be a food donation, or it can be monetary. We all love hockey and this is our way of giving back to the community through the sport we love.

Here’s a little more information about the event:
