Playoffs / End of Season:
Hard to believe, we are little over a month away from playoffs for the Mite thru Bantam divisions. As things stand right now, we anticipate having playoffs the week of March 4 thru March 8 with the championships on March 9 and March 10. The schedule for the playoffs will be posted as we get closer. Until then, skate hard, get your shots on net and be sure to back check...
We are still waiting to hear back from our cross-town rivals about doing a home/home series or city wide championship. More news on that as is happens.
Starting Friday night with distribution to the team coaches, you (or your player) will be given 2 ticket vouchers to go see the Nashville Predators for free. Game selection is any Monday thru Thursday night games - with Chicago, Detroit and the season finale excluded. However, you can get in to see some great hockey - redeem your ticket voucher at the Bridgestone Box Office and hurry, games are going fast!
SPRING HOCKEY IS HERE!
Many have asked about Spring Hockey this season. Registration is here - but with a twist this season. 1 practice and 10 games + playoffs. Spring Hockey runs early April thru the end of May. Divisions will be Mite / Squirt / Pee Wee / Bantam and Midget! Games will vary from weeknights to weekend - but don't worry mom, we take Mother's Day off! We are limiting capacities - so sign up soon and lock in your roster spot. The Hockey Operations Staff and Coaches will place players on teams. We cannot promise to place players on the same team. Spring hockey is open to any player in good standing from any organization (NYHL / A-Game / GNASH / Jr. Predators and Inline players who want to give ice a go). We kept the cost as low as possible - jersey only (no socks issued), ice and refs. With a true emphasis on having fun and using the skills you learned this season, it will be a blast. Season rules and programming will be placed on our website soon. Be sure to lock in your spot and sign up today!!
Try Hockey For Free / Hockey Weekend Across Amercia: Feb 15, 16 and 17!
More to come, but if you know someone who is between the ages of 4 and 10 who wants to try hockey for free, please point them to visit www.usahockey.com
and look for the Try Hockey For Free promotion. We will host a session for non-hockey players on Feb 16, 2013 - now's your chance to spread the news and get more friends on the ice. Additional details coming soon!
As preivously mentioned, there will be a few weekends where we are down for local tournaments, All Star Team travels and there are times when the Predators (or the NHL) will take ice. At this time, we know that they are taking some ice when the L.A. Kings are in town. They will also take ice to rehabilitate injured players. - be sure to keep an eye on the website for updates to the schedule.
