    Additional Practice Options - ENDING EARLY!

    Posted: 10/7/22 | Updated: 2/3/23

    The additional on-ice Skating and Goalie practices will ONLY be TONIGHT from 6-7pm (during Mini-Mite practice).


    Due to travel and other commitments, along with the Minis & Mites numbers EXPLODING this season, we have decided to end these practices a few weeks earlier than planned. (Was to end on 2/24, so we only lose the last 3 sessions...)

    A HUGE thank you to Goalie Coaches Brett/Chace and Skating Coaches Odie/Mike T. (and others...) for running these for most of the season!

    End of Practices

    The last Rec practice for this season will be on Friday, February 24th, 2023 (MiniMites & Mites).

    The last Varsity practice for this season will be on Wednesday, March 1st, 2023.

    YES - there are games, Year-End Festivals, and Tournaments after these dates. Be sure to check your team schedules and chats in the SportsEngine App on your phone.

    Annual Membership Meeting & Elections - 4/8/23! (2-4pm)

    At the Annual Membership Meeting on April 8th, 2023 (2-4pm in the Snack Bar area at the MAC - w/ Ice for the kids - skating only) we will have ballots for voting (one vote per registered player this season).
