Central Mass Outlaws, Tri-Valley Youth Hockey Announce Merger

Central Mass Outlaws, Tri-Valley Youth Hockey Announce Merger
Expanded hockey program based in Hopedale gives “everyone a place to play”
 
HOPEDALE, MA – The Central Mass Outlaws hockey club and Tri-Valley Youth Hockey Association have announced a merger for the coming season, one built on the premise that everyone should have a place to play within the game – and within the same program.

The newly expanded Outlaws Hockey Club will feature teams at two levels.  Select teams will play within the Massachusetts Premier Development Hockey League (“the Premier”), facing some of the top programs in the state and the nation.  Travel teams will compete in the Valley League, the state’s largest youth hockey league featuring competition at multiple levels.

Beginning with tryouts this month, the Outlaws will offer players from Mites to U18 a chance to find their niche within the great game of hockey.  Top players will face off against premier competition, facing top players from other programs.  Players not at that level yet will continue to develop at the travel level with the goal of improving their game.
By consolidating the resources of both programs, all Outlaws players will now have access to coaching and resources that few other programs can provide.  This year, the programs featured skill development by college coaches from Holy Cross and UMass Boston.  Outlaws goaltending clinics are run by Joe Bertagna, former Boston Bruins and USA Olympic goalie coach and currently commissioner of the Hockey East Association.  In addition, the Outlaws just announced the addition of four new coaches, all of whom played professionally.
The goal of the new program is to stress development at the youth hockey level, with Mites-Peewee programs stressing skill and skating development through the American Development Model.  By the time players reach the Bantam level, they will ramp up the competition with U14, U16, and U18 play through the MPDHL.  For too long, youth hockey programs have stressed competition over development at all levels of the game.  The Outlaws believe it’s time for development to be the key to youth hockey again.
The Outlaws will also stress off-ice development.  Older teams will incorporate strength and conditioning into their seasons, and work with athletes on nutrition and time management.  The Outlaws annually present the Rogers Award to the player who best represents the program in the community.  The Award, named in honor of the Rogers family that created the Outlaws program and ran it for more than two decades, stresses community service at all age levels.  In addition, the program will support the Tri-Valley Foundation.  This 501(c)3 non-profit will continue the tradition of Tri-Valley hockey’s community spirit.  This Foundation will continue to raise money to help financially challenged families in the area have access to all levels of hockey.
Thanks to this merger, there’s a place for everyone to play.  Families no longer need to jump from one program to another each year to find the right level of play for their child.  From beginner to Elite, every hockey player wearing the Outlaws jersey will be on the right track to build a life-long love of the game.

This latest move shows that Outlaws management is committed to fielding robust teams at all levels of competition.  With a strong first year rolling on with many of our teams heading to the playoffs we think the future of Outlaws hockey is brighter than ever.

Here's the full release from the MPDHL (with info on what teams will be in the league):


MASSACHUSETTS PREMIER DEVELOPMENT HOCKEY LEAGUE (THE PREMIER) EXPANDS TO INCLUDE MITE TO MIDGET DIVISIONS – Seven New Programs Join League!
The Premier becomes one of the largest hockey leagues in New England
The Massachusetts Premier Development Hockey League (The Premier) announced today that it will expand its levels of competition for the 2014-2015 season to include Mites through Midget divisions.   The Premier officially accepted the following youth hockey programs into the league; Boston Stars, Central Mass Outlaws, Manchester Flames, New England Predators, New England Stars, New England Junior Hurricanes and New Hampshire Junior Monarchs. These programs will join current league members; Dual State River Hawks, Eastern Mass Senators, Rhode Island Hitmen, South Shore Conquistadors, Springfield Rifles and Walpole Express which will be adding youth teams  as well. The remaining programs; Boston Shamrocks, Canton Bulldogs, Coastal Whalers, Dorchester Chiefs, GBL Bruins, Neponset Valley River Rats, Northstars Hockey, South Boston Shamrocks, South Shore Kings, Quincy 67’s, Wellesley Raiders and Weymouth Wildcats will continue their participation at the Midget and Bantam levels. The Premier is now comprised of more than 150 teams from 25 different hockey organizations making it one of the largest hockey leagues in New England.
The Premier will offer Premier, Elite, and Select levels of competition to all programs.  This original parity framework provides for a fair and balanced level of competition. “Given the large number of programs and teams involved, we will develop a real balance in the level of play that will further the positive development of every hockey player.” states Mike Bonish, President of The Premier.
 
The Premier is now operating in its seventh year.  Originally established as a Midget Hockey League, it has quickly grown in membership and has become a destination for top hockey talent.  The move to expand play throughout the youth level divisions is part of its overall strategic plan for growth. "Our long term goal is be the best hockey league in the United States.  Our plan is to partner with programs that embody the goals of USA Hockey's American Development Model (ADM) and prioritize developing their young athletes using the principles of Long Term Athlete Development so the players can be the best they can be." stated Mike Bonish, President of The Premier. "Our league will offer the stability and promise of a positive hockey experience for hockey families who are looking to give their kids the best opportunity to be coached, developed, and mentored.  Developing hockey players is a long-term process. We believe that the successful development of a young athlete is absolutely dependent on their exposure to sustained and high-intensity skill development.  The Premier teams all embrace this philosophy."
The Premier's expansion is undoubtedly a most positive and significant development in the youth hockey world in New England.  Bonish declares, "We are just getting started!  We will continue to grow to include more programs that embody a commitment to developing young hockey players and positively impacting their lives. The Premier will be the best hockey league in America!"
