WELCOME BACK HUSKIES
On behalf of the Malone Minor Hockey Board I would like to welcome back all of our players and families for another exciting season of hockey. It has been a very busy summer as all of our board members have working with community leaders to make continued improvements to our Civic Center. This season we will be featuring two new dehumidifiers that will greatly impact the quality of ice that we have in our facility. Over the last several years we continue to see significant growth in our association and with the support of "Adirondack for Kids" we have been able to give over 300 kids the opportunity to try this great game for the first time for free. We are committed again this year to bring this sport to our community for free for all first year players. We have 50 spots in this program and they will fill up very quickly. As a growing association we will be committed to providing a fun filled environment that promotes growth, development, teamwork and sportsmanship for all of your children to enjoy. As a parent you will see further commitment to communication, player development and our training areas. It is our goal to see a smile on every child’s face when they participate in our association and that we develop "every" child at every level.
Please keep an eye out for updates on our projected opening in the beginning of October. Remember to check the website for practice schedules as they will be added over the next 30 days. I hope that all of you are enjoying your off season and I look forward to seeing you at the rink soon.
Malone Minor Hockey President
Malone Minor Hockey Association (MMHA) is exploring the possibility of forming a competitive girls14U state tournament bound (TB) team. The purpose of this announcement is to describe the proposed format, solicit interest, and to invite parents/players to ask questions.
Given that MMHA has already committed to teams at the House and 14U non-tournament bound levels, a 14U TB team would not utilize additional practice time and games and would only be scheduled to meet minimum NYSAHA requirements for participation. Those requirements include a minimum of 16 games for the team and at least 10 games for any given player on the roster. All players would be required to sign a team priority agreement indicating that, other than the weekend(s) of the state tournament and sectional tournament, their first priority would be with their other non-TB team. Final costs would be determined after a roster is created.
The 14U TB team would be selected by guest staff (Chuck Dievendorf and Nancy Legacy) from the pool of interested players. Interested players/families should contact Craig St. Hilaire (email@example.com) as soon as possible. Interested players not selected to the final roster will be granted an on-ice tryout, if requested. The team will be coached by Craig St. Hilaire, Bill DeCoteau, and Matt Jones.
