5.     When does the season start and end? 

  • There are two seasons:
  1. The Fall Season begins with team practices around the beginning of September, games start around the end of September and goes through the end of February with the playoffs.
  2. In May, the Summer league begins and goes through the beginning of August.  This is a great opportunity for new players to familiarize themselves with the team before the start of the fall season.
  • 8th through 11th grades are eligible
  • Registration (the league is run by the County, and covers around 10 games) – will depend on the number of players and if ice practices are held.  We take the total costs (league dues, ice costs) and divide by the number of players.
