A Snow Day has been declared for today, January 17th. Pond Hockey is in effect. Because of a lack of rink personnel, we will not start pond hockey until the 9:20 am session.
The road conditions may be too hazardous to get to school, but resourceful hockey families always find a safe way to get to the Arena.
All sessions are free for Casco Bay Hockey players. We will be following our standard pond hockey schedule
|9:20 am||Bantam & Pee Wee Pond Hockey (14 and under)|
|10:30 am||Squirt Pond Hockey (10 and under)|
|11:40 am||Mites Pond Hockey (8 and under)|
|12:50 pm||Learn to Play & Break the Ice Pond Hockey with Parents—All parents must wear a helmet|
|2:00 pm||Intro to Hockey for New Players Ages 4-13: Helmets & Mask required—some equipment will be available for use. Learn to Play & Break the Ice players can also join in.|
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.
For pond hockey sessions, 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.
