CMO MOVING TEAMS TO NES
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
 
CENTRAL MASS OUTLAWS MOVING ALL TEAMS TO NEW ENGLAND SPORTS CENTER
 
 
The Central Mass Outlaws, one of New England’s fastest-growing youth hockey programs, has announced that it is moving it's PHL and VL teams to the New England Sports Center in Marlborough, MA.  This move will take place when the 2017-18 season begins this coming fall.
 
After four seasons at the Blackstone Valley IcePlex in Hopedale, MA, the Central Mass Outlaws teams are returning to the hockey facility they called home for many years in the 1990’s and 2000’s.  The move was made possible by the NE Sports Center’s construction of two additional rinks for the coming season.
 
One of these new rinks will be the Outlaws primary skating facility, featuring an Outlaws logo at center ice as well as dedicated locker rooms, storage space, and an office for the program.  
 
This move ushers in an exciting new era for the Outlaws, its players, and all families associated with the program.  In addition to a fixed practice schedule and one of the best skills programs in Massachusetts, the Outlaws now have the opportunity to host tournaments and additional events at the Sports Center.
 
“We appreciate our time at the Blackstone Valley IcePlex, but creating our own identity at one of the Sports Center’s new rinks was too good an opportunity to pass up,” said the Outlaws Board of Directors.  “Youth hockey costs continue to spiral, and this was the best way to continue the program’s growth without once again increasing tuition.”
 
The NE Sports Center, the undisputed hub of youth and minor hockey in New England, is easily accessible from Routes 495 and 290 and features function rooms, a full-service restaurant, a snack bar and a fully stocked hockey pro shop with skate sharpening.  These amenities will make the Sports Center a one-stop destination for all Outlaws families.
