Battle in the Dells

You asked for it - and we have ANSWERED!

The First Annual Battle in the Dells has been planned for Oct 4 -6, 2024. All games will be held at Lake Delton Ice. A spin off of Ice Wars, Battle in the Dells will feature Squirt and Peewee age groups.  We are planning to have 6 teams at both levels, featuring three full lines and two goalies. 

Unlike Ice Wars, the teams will be selected by the tournament director and games will start on Friday night. This event is open to all skill levels.  Any player that has NOT yet played as a Bantam may register for the event. We ask that GOALIES who register are A level or Higher. 

Upon registration and payment we will forward you confirmation and a QR code or link to download a "Team Chat App" This app will allow you to keep up to date with everything

Stay to Play Event

This is a Stay to Play Event. In order to play in a Dells Cup Event. (If you live within an hour you will be able to request a "No Stay". 



1. Select a Hotel Partners from the Home Page to see our partners. Please not that some of the options do have restrictions so please look closely. 

2. Contact Tournament Director with how many rooms your team will need.

3. Give booking code to your families and have them register prior to the deadline.

We have this stay to play rule for all teams who are traveling more than 1 hour away. Exceptions can be made upon request. We enforce this rule as our facility is owned by the Village of Lake Delton and Leased by Ybrik Management LLC.  The Village continues to make upgrades to the facility based a lot in part by how many rooms our events bring in to the community which equals economic impact. Lake Delton Ice the dba of Ybrik, also receives a rebate back from all partner hotels. This allows us to keep our costs down and pass on to local youth clubs and tournament teams.
