Weekly Dryland and Additional NO COST Practice Options are under way!

Posted: 10/10/21  |  Updated 10/15/21

USA Hockey has created fun, age-appropriate Dryland (off-ice) exercises that help deliver the agility, balance, coordination, strength and skill training that young players need to complement their on-ice play.

We have started the weekly Dryland! (BEFORE on-ice practices the same evening)

This will be led by Coaches Brian & Leah Dolan at the following times:

           - Squirts (10U) | Tuesdays @ 6:15pm
           - Peewees (12U) | Tuesdays @ 6:45pm
           - Bantam (14U) & Jr. Varsity (JV) | Wednesdays @ 6:00pm

  • Please have your Squirt, Peewee, or Bantam/JV player arrive on-time in comfortable exercise clothes and athletic shoes to participate! 
  • Meet at the lockers near the first rink door

We have worked to allow enough time for Dryland and for the players to then get changed for on-ice practice immediately after.


We are also adding additional on-ice practice time at NO COST specifically for SKATING and GOALIES this week as follows:

          - Skating | Tuesdays @ 6:00pm-7:00pm (during Mini/Mite practice, led by Coach Susan Kugelmann)

  • BOTH parents and/or coaches can request their player participate in the Skating Practice
  • Please let your player's Head Coach know if you are interested! We can get them rostered for this for reminders, etc., but this is NOT REQUIRED)

          - Goalies | Thursdays @ 6:00pm-7:00pm (during Mini/Mite practice, led by Coach Scot Morin)

  • ALL current goalies will be rostered for this practice (reminders, etc.) - the ask is they do attend if at all possible!
  • Any players interested in playing goalie need to let their Head Coach know & arrange for equipment sizing prior to being rostered for this practice

Again, there is NO ADDITIONAL COST for any of these practices!

These practices are planned to take place at the end of the ice by the Zamboni doors.

And the 2021-22 Season BEGINS!

Posted: 10/4/21 | Updated 10/5/21

Practices started this week!

          - JV/Bantam (14U) from 6:00-7:15pm
          - Varsity from 7:30-8:45pm

          - JV/Bantam (14U) from 6:35-7:45pm
          - Varsity from 8:00-9:15pm

          - Mini/Mites (8U) from 6:00-7:00pm
          - Squirts (10U) from 7:00pm-8:00pm
          - Peewees (12U) from 7:30pm-8:30pm

We are looking to start dryland at the 10U level and up next week.

Let's have a great season of hockey!

We are preparing for a NORMAL hockey season WITH games! (Not just practices)

Posted: 9/10/21

Don’t forget that REGISTRATION is still OPEN! (Link here or go to the Registration tab above!). 

There have been some questions about what this season will look like.  None of us can forecast the future but as for now we are preparing for a NORMAL Hockey season with games and travel to/from other associations. 

Other associations in the state have indicated that they too are planning on a regular season.  We just had a scheduler volunteer to schedule the season games for NMAHA and High School is finishing up their schedule this week. (Will post once finalized)

Other sports are up and running and now is the time to gear up and REGISTER for NMAHA HOCKEY!

Planned practice days and times are now posted ABOVE!

          + If USA Hockey has provided you a discount code, this will only be applicable on their site during this renewal process

For jerseys/socks there are NO significant changes for Mini-Mite/Mite (8U) thru Bantam (14U) - unless the current jersey no longer fits or is worn out.  Please include this in your registration (cost is $45).  Additional socks will be a selectable option as well ($25/pair).

For players moving out of Bantam (14U) and into JV/Varsity (birth year 2006 or earlier), please register as a New Player (on the Player Information page) to account for the new jerseys and socks that will be needed.
