Both the Blackstone Valley Ice Arena and Horgan Arena are open tonight.
Outlaws practices should be held as scheduled, unless you hear otherwise from your individual coaches.
Please be aware that cleanup efforts around the region continue, and that these are not ideal driving conditions. If you choose to attend practice tonight, please drive carefully and give yourself extra time to get to the rink.
Outlaws announce Summer Teams for HS, Middle School, and Squirt/Mite levels
Teams to practice and play games weeknights – a great way to keep your child skating this summer while keeping your weekends free!
The Outlaws hockey organization is announcing plans to host summer teams beginning in May, 2015. The program will host multiple teams at the High School, Middle School, and Squirt/Mite levels.
High School and Middle School teams will play games at the New England Sports Center. The NESC leagues will feature 10 games plus playoffs. We will put together teams by school year, at the following levels:
High School Upper:players entering 11th and 12th grades
High School Lower: players entering 9th and 10th grades
Middle School Upper: players entering 8th grade
Middle School Lower: players entering 6th and 7th grades
HS games will feature checking, while Middle School games will be non-checking. There will be no games on Memorial Day or July 4th. In addition to games at NESC, all teams will have one full-ice practice per week at the Blackstone Valley Ice Arena in Hopedale.
Mite and Squirt aged players will play half-ice 3 on 3 games at Blackstone Valley Ice Arena in Hopedale and will practice small-ice drills at the rink. This will be a great way for younger players to get more time on the ice and more time with the puck on their stick. USA Hockey believes that small-ice games for younger players helps to keep hockey fun for all players.
Most importantly, games and practices will be held during the week. You’ll be able to keep your weekends free for the family!
The cost for players wishing to take part in any Outlaws summer programs will be $450, which will include all games, practices, and jerseys.
We believe this is a great value for families looking to keep their players skating in the summer without taking on the commitment and costs of a travel program. With weekends free families will still be allowed to enjoy their summers away from the rink while players continue to improve their skill level.
Registration for all summer teams is now open. Hope to see you at the rink this summer!
