Nassau County Hockey provides a variety programs to all the residents of Nassau County. Listed below are all of the programs we offer:
Mite Development Program (ages 5-8, season runs October through March)
This program is designed to teach basic hockey skills without the competitive pressure of actual games in accordance with USA Hockey’s American Development Model (ADM).
Fundamentals, learning and practicing skills in small groups are emphasized.
The Mite program sessions are usually held Sunday mornings, with cross-ice games one night a week starting later on in the season (schedule may vary).
Nassau County Hockey League (ages 9-16, season runs September through March)
The Nassau County Hockey League consists of clinics, team practices, exhibition games and culminates with the NCHL Tournament in late February/early March.
The program will take place at various rinks, including Cantiague Park (Hicksville), Twin Rinks at Eisenhower (East Meadow), Grant Park (Hewlett), and Christopher Morley Park (Roslyn).
All coaches in the Nassau County Hockey League are required to be USA Hockey-accredited Level 1-4 coaches and must pass New York State background checks prior to coaching in the program.
The NCHL, abiding by USA Hockey's rules and its national trends, is a non-checking league only and follows the American Development Model (ADM) for player development.
Spring Hockey Clinic (ages 5-16, session runs April through May)
This clinic is an eight-week program where the players skate once a week.
The focus is on enhancing skill development and knowledge in all areas of the game in accordance with USA Hockey’s American Development Model (ADM).
Hockey 101 & 102 (ages 5-14, various sessions are held year-round)
This program will focus on improving the skater’s stride mechanics, edge use and foot speed on the ice, as well as working with sticks and pucks to enhance the skater’s stick handling technique, passing fundamentals and shooting skills.
Hockey 101's target audience is the younger beginner player interested in taking the next step. Players should have the basic ability to skate without assistance. Nassau County's Hockey 101 Class will provide work with balance, forward and backward skating techniques, stops, stick handling, passing and shooting.
