Program Description

All Teams Receive the Following (included with registration):

  • At least two team practices per week (at least one per week for 8U) and a regular schedule of games (average of one home game and one away game per weekend in season). We plan to utilize Baker Rink at Princeton University, Tsai Fieldhouse Ice Rink at The Lawrenceville School and Lisa McGraw Rink at Princeton Day School for organizational activities.
  • Additional on-ice skills sessions featuring station-based drills, skating specific instruction as well as individualized goalie-specific instruction by our professional staff.
  • 8U,10U and 12U teams will participate in a NJYHL “Pre-season” schedule at the beginning of the season to determine competitive level of play. The NJYHL will also use their “Competition Committee” to place teams appropriately.
  • Up to two tournaments per team at the 10U, 12U and 14U levels. 16U and 18U teams have one tournament included per team. 16U and 18U teams may attend their tournament during the summer or over Labor Day weekend at the coach's discretion.
  • The 12U and 14U AA teams will have the opportunity to participate in the Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League (EJEPL). Additional team participation may be made on a case-by-case basis. This will be in addition to participation in the New Jersey Youth Hockey League (NJYHL).  This will involve an additional cost as noted in the tuition outline. EJEPL schedules may start earlier than NJYHL schedules.
  • Teams participating in the EJEPL league will have showcase weekends that may be substituted for a tournament.
  • Off season (May-July) ice sessions may be made available (i.e. camps/goalie clinics/optional team practices, etc.)


All Players Receive the Following (included with registration):

  • Two tickets per player to attend one Princeton University Hockey game.
  • One player admission to season ending banquet (8U through 18U).
  • One team/individual "Memory Mate" photo package (8U through 18U).
  • Participation in our annual tailgate party.


Clarifications:

  • At the 16U and 18U levels we field "short season" teams which play a condensed schedule due to high school hockey and academic considerations. 16U and 18U teams will have skill sessions every week during that short season. At the 10U, 12U and 14U level, skill sessions will be held on alternate weeks for the duration of the season.
  • 8U teams will be USA Hockey ADM (American Development Model) compliant. 8U teams will be on the ice 3-4 times per week. All 8U teams play half ice games for the entire season and utilize a 3:1 practice/game ratio.

 

Items Not Included in Registration:

  • Game jerseys, shells, helmet stickers, and socks must be purchased separately at time of registration through our website. All other team wear like warm-ups, bags, etc are available for purchase but are optional.
  • USA Hockey Annual Membership. USA Hockey mandates that all players register directly and share their IMR (Individual Membership Registration) number once placed on a team.
