Practice Schedule Changes for February

Due to the recent storms, many area high school hockey games were canceled and need to be made up. As a result of their rescheduling our practices times have changed for multiple levels, from Learn to Play to Tier II.

As this is a fluid situation, we are asking parents to check their schedules daily for the remainder of the month. There have even been changes to Tuesday's, 2/3, practice schedule. Other dates have also been affected.

Thank you for your understanding.


BDN Blog, A Special Goal - By Travis Baker

Saturday Afternoon — It was a play typical of youth hockey and not atypical of any other level of the sport.
The puck was in the corner as were nine 9-10 year old players, their sticks clattering away, their bodies bouncing and banging against each other. Forwards were in there, defensemen were in there, it was joyous chaos.
