We have finally accepted that social media is not a fad and have jumped on the bandwagon. All of our website posts will be automatically posted on our Facebook page and Twitter feed. We will also be posting game scores on our Twitter feed and will retweet local game scores and highlights for everyone to see.
On snow days, we will post our pond hockey schedule on our website, Facebook page and Twitter feed by 7:15 am.
On Veterans’ Day, we will be holding our first pond hockey sessions, which also include a Try Hockey for Free program for new players. Please get the word out to spread the Joy of Hockey.

Pond Hockey Rules
Pond Hockey is played without goalies and with standard pond hockey goals. In all sessions, players 18 years old and younger must wear a helmet with full mask. Adults must wear a helmet, but are strongly encouraged to wear a full mask.
Pee Wee players and older do not need to wear full pads, but a protective cup and shin pads are strongly recommended since saucer passes are allowed (ie soft passes off the ice). Hard passes off the ice are not allowed, but deflections should be expected by all players. Protect your anatomy accordingly. However, Squirt players (Age 10) and younger must wear full equipment.
All sessions are coed and non-checking. Players may play up or down a level for any session. For instance, a Midget can play in a Bantam session, and a Pee Wee can also play in a Bantam session. Older players should recognize that it is good form to set up younger players for scoring opportunities. If a session is full, players outside that age bracket may be asked to leave the ice to make room.
