Games/Season

Our teams play in the Morris County Youth Hockey League (MCYHL) at Mennen Arena.  The games start in October and end in mid-February.  There are 18 regular season games against other towns in the league, we also try and schedule non-league scrimmages against other towns. All teams make the playoffs.

Practices start in mid July and go through February. Most practices are at Aspen Ice. We try to schedule 2 hours of practice per team per week. Each team will practice an average of 50 – 60 hours per season.

 

MCHYL offers a developmental clinic on Saturday mornings. Information can be obtained at MCYHL.net. There is an additional fee to participate in the MCYHL clinic.
