Interested in the sport of ice hockey, but are a bit hesitant to step on the ice? The Nassau County Hockey League accepts players of all levels, from the beginner to the more advanced. Our staff of coaches and volunteers all agree on one thing—the common goal of making the sport of ice hockey an enjoyable experience for all involved, from player to parent.
Included in this e-mail is the basic information about the 2015-2016 NCHL House League Season, which begins with evaluations towards the end of September, and runs through the beginning of March 2016.
The dates and times of the player evaluations will be assigned after we receive the player’s application.
The player evaluations will be preceded by optional Fall Shape-Ups that begin mid-September. These Shape-Ups are designed to shake the rust off as the players prep for their evaluations and the coming season, and run $27.00 per on-ice session.
Please see the attached document for dates and times of our Shape-Ups.
The 2015-2016 NCHL House League is open to players born in 1999-2010. Based upon age, players are assigned to one of six age groups:
Mini-Mite (ages 5-6, birth years 2009-2010)
Mites (ages 7-8, birth years 2007-2008)
Squirt (ages 9-10, birth years 2005-2006)
Pee Wee (ages 11-2, birth years 2003-2004)
Bantam (ages 13-14, birth years 2001-2002)
Midget Minor (ages 15-16, birth years 1999-2000)
The Mini-Mite and Mite Programs consist of skill development sessions and cross-ice games. Players at the Mini-Mite and Mite Levels are taught the basic fundamentals of the sport, from basic skating to passing and shooting. The Mini-Mite and Mite Programs are generally held Saturday evenings at our outdoor rinks (weather pending) and Sunday mornings at Cantiague Park in Hicksville.
The Squirt, Peewee, Bantam and Midget Minor Levels are played at Cantiague Park in Hicksville, Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn, Grant Park in Hewlett, and the Twin Rinks at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow. The players at these levels are evaluated at two sessions, where their current skill level is assessed by our staff and coaches. From there, the players are drafted onto teams, given a team jersey and will begin a series of team practices and skill development sessions. The season then progresses into games from the end of November through the end of the regular season at the close of February, culminating in the NCHL Tournament where all teams will qualify for the playoffs and a shot at the Division Championship.
In addition to all the attached information regarding players, the Nassau County Hockey League is always in need of volunteers and coaches. In order to participate as a coach or volunteer, potential candidates must attend and attain their USA Hockey Level I Coaching Certification. This day-long event features experienced speakers and coaches, in addition to on-ice participation, geared toward those who wish to become an active part of the grassroots development of youth hockey. It is not necessary that you have skating ability to become certified as a USA Hockey coach, just the desire to be a part of the betterment of youth hockey in a positive environment that fosters the concepts of teamwork, skill development and sportsmanship. Locally, there will a USA Hockey Level I Coaching Certification Course. Visit USAHockey.com for more information.
