Some optional player and contact information may be requested by the Pat Quinn Classic, and that information will be shared with Rink Net, who will use that data to supply to their registered scouts. Any of the optional information provided is the responsibility of the team manager or coach, and the responsibility to obtain consent from the players and parent/guardian to share that information. In most cases, we try to obtain explicit consent before these activities will occur. At any time, anyone may request that we stop communicating by contacting us directly.
