It is hard to believe that we are finally going to start the hockey season. This season will be different than any I have been involved with in my hockey career. We will need to make sure we follow state required mandates- with wearing masks, social distancing, limitations on players and parents in rinks, etc.

Parents:
PLEASE WRITE YOUR SONS NAME ON THE FRONT AND BACK OF THE HELMETS
(Hockey Tape with Marker or White Label with Marker)

This is needed for evaluations. We usually set a table up but with COVID-19 we are unable to do this.
The beginning of the season will have an evaluation phase that will begin on Monday, 8/24/20. This process will go through around 9/12. The players will be grouped with players of similar skill set. The Groups are broken down below, please see the table for skating schedule.

  • Group A (Alubunda to Franko)
  • Group B (Fritsche to Lampinen)
  • Group C (Maaloff to Zufan)

Please review the schedule closely as on 9/8 will have 2012 and 2014 birth years skating. 9/9 will have 2013 birth years skating together and 9/10 will have 2014’s and 2015’s skating. Then on Saturday, 9/12 there will be birth year specific skates.
Based on the amount of weekday ice that we have received from the rink, we may have larger groups to try and get the players on the ice more frequently.

September 13th- We will have a breakdown of the groups. Lisa Sukenik will send out information to all the families. We will still be evaluating the players to make sure they were placed properly. We will move players to make sure they are with players of similar skills. By the completion of 9/27- we will have the players divided into their specific teams and families will be notified of who the coach will be. If you have any questions, please contact me.
