Qualification system[edit]

There were ten teams total (five per gender), with 17 players on each team. The host nation was allowed one team of each gender. The remaining eight teams were selected based on their joint Men’s and Women’s 2011 IIHF World Ranking.

For the skills challenge, the host nation was allowed one competitor of each sex. For the remaining competitors, national competitions were held, and the qualifiers attended a Global Skills Challenge at the 2011 Hockey Development Camp in Vierumäki, Finland.[3]
