FAQ

Q: How do we book hotels?

Please note that we use a strict stay to play policy for Beantown Classic events. All teams MUST go book through: http://www.nes.com/Hotel.asp. Teams that do not use one of the approved hotels will not be put on the schedule. Questions can be directed to Mike Anderson (508.820.1600) ext 106 

Q: What division should our team be in?

Discuss this with Kelly and Alex. They take great care in making sure you are in the right spot.

Q: What's the difference between FUTURES RED and FUTURES BLUE?

Some FAA teams are not sure about the quality of their team from top to bottom, thus it is just a way to help us keep the match-ups equal.

Q: Do college scouts watch FUTURES BLUE?

Of course, they watch anyone. Do not let the BLUE label impact you. It’s simply just a way to match up teams for good games and better evaluation. There will be teams who can compete in the RED and play in the BLUE and vice versa. In the end it isn’t an issue.

Q: What arena do we play at?

We do our best to limit locations while giving you as much time in the main facility as possible. This year it may be a seven or eight ice pad facility thus helping us reach that goal.

Q: Is there Monday this year?

At the present time, we will not be including a Monday playoff day.
