Pre-Thanksgiving Pond Hockey

A special thanks to Carrie Klair and 207 Salty Crafts for posting an outstanding Zamboni photo to our Instagram account.  We love to see the next generation getting fired up for hockey and on that note, please spread the word that we sponsor Try Hockey for Free sessions on school vacation days.

We will be holding pond hockey sessions on Wednesday, November 27th.  As always, pond hockey is free for all Casco Bay players.

We will be following our standard pond hockey schedule:

We will be posting our pond hockey schedule for Friday, November 29th tomorrow.  Because of Casco Bay Hockey games, we will only have a few open sessions on Friday.

Pond Hockey Rules

Pond Hockey is played without goalies and with standard pond hockey goals. No goalies in pads will be allowed on the ice.  All goaltenders should skate out.

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 and younger must wear full equipment except during Try Hockey for Free sessions.

Age Groups

All sessions are coed and non-checking.  Players may play up or down a level for any sessions.  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.  Please remember that all  games are non-checking.  If there are too many players for a session, older or younger players outside of the age group may not be able to play.
