The fall hockey season is almost upon us. Thank you
to everyone who participated in the summer hockey league. It was so nice
to see a bunch of new faces this season. It was also really great to see
everyone spreading the word about the league and bringing their friends to
join in. The more we can spread the word the stronger the league will
become. As we grow it will be easier to define the levels of play and
create strong competition for everyone at every skill level.
We have some changes for the upcoming
fall season. I have tried several different ways to run the league and
over the years I have learned that some ways go more smoothly than others.
So what I have come up with for the fall season will be very similar to
the summer season. I just think the way the summer was run created a more
competitive game each week. So I would like to try it for the fall season
and see how it goes. If it doesnít work out than I can always change it up
for the winter season. The seasons will also be shortened into four
different seasons in order to accommodate more people.
Having said that, the number of players who sign up
may change the way in which the league will be put together. So we will
have to wait to see what the numbers look like before I finalize any
The fall season will consist of a
Wednesday Night League with games at 7:40pm & 8:50pm and a Sunday Morning
League with games at 10:20am & 11:30am. Wednesday Nights will begin
September 9th and run until December 30th 2015.
Sunday Mornings will begin September 20th and run until
December 27th 2015. A winter league will follow.
We will no longer be offering a skills
clinic on Saturday mornings. Which is a little sad because it was a lot of
fun, a great workout, and a valuable learning experience. But the numbers
just werenít there on a consistent basis to make it last. Thatís not to
say that it may not return in the future, but as for this year we wonít be
