The Season is over - Have You Cleaned your Player Gear Yet?

Created the document below for one of the better methods I've found for cleaning the hockey gear that can't be put in your washer (like foot socks, hockey socks, jocks/jills, & jerseys can...).

Recommended at the end of the season & as noted in the PDF, if it all still fits at the end of the summer - you're all set!  If some no longer fits, it's in a useable state to put back in our storage or for the next player to get it at our Gear Exchange in late-September.

REMINDER: USA Hockey Zero Tolerance Policy (Parents/Spectators)


The game will be stopped by on-ice officials (or off-ice officials/coaches at lower-levels) when any parent(s) / spectator(s) display inappropriate and disruptive behavior that interferes with other spectators or the game. The on-ice officials (or off-ice officials at lower levels) will identify violators to the coaches / BOD / MAC Staff for the purpose of removing parents/spectators from the spectator’s viewing and game area.

Once removed, play will resume. Lost time will not be replaced and violators may be subject to further disciplinary action by the local governing body. This inappropriate and disruptive behavior shall include:

• Use of obscene or vulgar language in a boisterous manner to anyone at any time.

• Taunting of players, coaches, officials or other spectators by means of baiting, ridiculing, threat of physical violence or physical violence.

• Throwing of any object in the spectators viewing area, players bench, penalty box or on ice surface, directed in any manner as to create a safety hazard.

Full policy (including Players, Coaches, and Officals) found HERE.

Adding a Parent/ Guardian for your player in SE

SportsEngine controls the access to your player through the primary parent/guardian account. If you need to add a 2nd parent/guardian (or more) to allow access to the practice/game schedules, etc. Here is the PDF to the process for this:
