Attention Bantam ('99's and '00's) Families!
Although the 2012-13 season has just ended, we wanted to let you know about our plans for the upcoming season.
We will once again offer three Bantam Travel teams. This was our first year that we have been able to support three teams and all three teams had successful seasons. We believe the next season will bring an even higher level of play to our Bantam level.
We have given careful deliberation and we are planning to change our Bantam offering for next season, offering a team of ’99 (Major) team, a ’00 (minor) team, and a 3rd team comprised of both birth years.
Several reasons are behind this decision....
Attention Mite ('05/'06) Families!
We would like to update you on the status of “full ice” Mite Hockey.
As many of you are aware, USA Hockey (our governing body) instituted a program called the American Development Model (ADM) three years ago. Many of the components of the ADM were consistent with our philosophies and we have (or already had) implemented many of these concepts. The ADM was designed to be “tools not rules” for local associations to implement as they felt best.Unfortunately, USA Hockey also had mandated that all Mite (U8) aged hockey be played cross-ice beginning next season.
