USA Hockey Adds Six to Model Association Contingent

09/08/2014, 4:00pm EDT

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — USA Hockey announced today that six additional youth hockey organizations have earned designation as a USA Hockey Model Association, bringing the total number of model associations nationwide to 17.

With this designation, each has committed to fully implement programming dedicated to age-appropriate, age-specific skill development, in accordance with USA Hockey's American Development Model, throughout the 8-and-Under (mite), 10-and-Under (squirt) and 12-and-Under (peewee) age classifications.

The newly designated model associations include:

Admirals Hockey Club Glen Ellyn, Illinois
Anaheim Wildcats Youth Hockey Club Anaheim, California
Colorado Rampage Hockey Club Monument, Colorado
Nassau County Hockey Hicksville, New York
Scenectady Youth Hockey Association Schenectady, New York
Stongsville Youth Hockey Club Strongsville, Ohio

"We're excited to welcome this next wave of model associations and we're excited for the kids who will benefit from the commitment of these associations to age-appropriate skill development," said Kevin McLaughlin, senior director of hockey development for USA Hockey. "By taking this step, these associations are making a strong move to offer the best possible competition and training environment for their players."

As a benefit of their Model Association designation, each association will receive support from USA Hockey to implement the ADM throughout their programs, including in-person coaches training, on-ice instruction and parent education from USA Hockey's national staff. Further, each program will also receive equipment, signage and educational resources from USA Hockey.

Every youth hockey organization affiliated with USA Hockey has the opportunity to be recognized as a Model Association by meeting development-centric criteria outlined here.

NOTES: The six new USA Hockey Model Associations join an existing roster that includes the Arvada Hockey Association (Arvada, Colorado), Colorado Select Girls Hockey Association (Littleton, Colorado), Colorado Springs Hockey Association (Colorado Springs, Colorado), Kalamazoo Optimist Hockey Association (Kalamazoo, Michigan), Kettler Capitals (Kettler, Virginia), Kirkland Sno-King Hockey Association (Kirkland, Washington), Kirkwood Youth Hockey Association (Kirkwood, Missouri), Montgomery Youth Hockey Association (Montgomery, Maryland), New Jersey Bandits (Wayne, New Jersey), Orchard Lake United (Orchard Lake, Michigan) and the San Jose Junior Sharks (San Jose, California.)

Cantiague Park Parking Lot
by posted 09/02/2014
Due to construction in the main parking lot and surrounding area at Cantiague Park, the main lot will be closed to traffic for the next two weeks as the lot is repaired. 
Also closed will be the traffic circle for drop-offs and pick-ups. 
The West John Street main entrance to Cantiague Park will still be open, however, all traffic will be diverted to the side lot. Another option to enter the Park will be from Cantiague Rock Road. 
We apologize for this inconvenience.

Please see the attached forms for the upcoming 2014-2015 Nassau County House League. 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 2014-2015 NCHL House League Season, which runs from Sunday, September 28, 2014 with the first of two player evaluations, through the beginning of March 2014. The player evaluations will be preceded by optional Fall Shape-Ups that begin Sunday, September  7. These Shape-Ups, which run three consecutive Sundays, Sept. 7-21, are designed to shake the rust off as the players prep for their evaluations and the coming season, and run $25 per on-ice session. Please see the attached document for dates and times of our Shape-Ups.

The 2014-2015 NCHL House League is open to players born in 1998-2009. Based upon age, players are assigned to one of six age groups:

  • Mini-Mite (ages 5-6, birth years 2008-2009)
  • Mites (ages 7-8, birth years 2006-2007)
  • Squirt (ages 9-10, birth years 2004-2005)
  • Pee Wee (ages 11-2, birth years 2002-2003)
  • Bantam (ages 13-14, birth years 2000-2001)
  • Midget Minor (ages 15-16, birth years 1998-1999)

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, Pee Wee , Bantam and Midget Minor Levels are played at Cantiague Park in Hicksville, Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn, and Grant Park in Hewlett. The players at these levels are evaluated at three 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 for more information.

Please complete the attached forms on or before Sunday, August 31, and should you have any additional questions, please all either NCHL Director Mark LaMarr at (516) 571-7009.
