New York Hudson Valley Winter League
Winter league is a weekly one hour game for 7th-12th graders, split up according to grade. You do not play with your high school team, but with others in our area to get to know your fellow hockey players. The lineup will be a 6 v 6 format (5 field players plus a goalie). When a goalie is unavailable, a 6th field player will be used. Indoor rules will apply for safe play.
Dates: Thursdays, January 3 through February 28 from 6-8 PM
Who: 3 divisions: Grades 7-8 (from 6-7PM); Grades 9-10 (games will vary: 6-7PM and 7-8PM); Grades 11-12 (7-8PM)
Where: Hudson Valley Sports Dome, Milton, NY
Cost: $130 plus $5 registration fee for non-active members.
NEW: The first night will be a practice with your team. The other 8 dates will be games followed by a playoff! There are NO MAKE-UPS due to weather. NO REFUNDS in cases of weather cancellation. No special requests to be on teams with friends. We will work to have at least 2 players from the same high school on a team for carpooling purposes though. Players who have never played in winter league before, will receive a pinnie; players who want an additional pinnie and received one in past years, can purchase for $15 extra.
Players will register as individuals and be placed on a team with players from other schools (not their HS team). If you are a goalie, please indicate if you are available for both game times. Goalies will not be assigned to a team unless we have enough keepers. If there are not enough goalies, we will give the goalies an opportunity to play during both game times each night.
Normal registration will end on November 18th. Players may register with a $15 late fee until December 10th.
We are excited to help make another year of winter league a reality!
If you have 5 or more players register you need to send a coach from your school. If you have 12 or more, you will need to supply 2 coaches. ALL coaches, even your substitute MUST register for liability and safety reasons.
CALLING VOLUNTEER HIGH SCHOOL COACHES!
We can give high school juniors and seniors looking to to help our youth division in the first hour official volunteer hours for their work. Plus, coaching is FUN! Also apply as a coach, even if you are registered as a player.
