We are very excited to be partnering with USA Hockey and Mass Hockey’s web partner SportNgin and look to develop the finest web site for our league members!

    As you may know our league has recently changed our league name as we are entering our SEVENTH season of operation! As I enter this season as League’s President for my 7th year as well I can tell that we have as a dedicated group of officers and directors that “Get It” and truly have the best interest of “ALL” of the players that play in our League! It is a terrific group of people to work with!

    I would like to tell you a bit about our growth the past 7 years. In year one, we had a league that involved 10 programs and 6 18U teams and 10 16U teams, 16 teams. Today our league has 18 programs and our team count is now 47 teams that include 13 14U teams, 18 16U teams and 16 18U teams.

    Our league’s mission has always been to showcase and develop Bantam and Midget age hockey players in an effort to help them to realize their potential as athletes along with being valued members of their community. The league will continue to promote respect; courtesy and good sportsmanship among all teams participating inclusive of players, coaches, parents and fans.

    Looking forward these are exciting times to be involved in Youth Hockey and I am confident that our league is ready to accept the challenges to continue to develop our league into one of the BEST in the Country!
