Leave the skates behind and join the best (and only) floor hockey league in town! Players will have fun and develop hockey and team-sports skills and will be eligible for end-of-season awards. Each week, teams will have a practice (15 mins) followed by a 3-period game (15 mins per period). Game start times vary each week based on the schedule.
* Mites (6-9 years old) - Players will be placed on a team based on age and skill level.
* Pee Wee (10-13 years old) - Players will be drafted to teams by coaches.
* Junior (13-16 years old) - Pick-up hockey with new teams each week.
The first Saturday of the season (January 7th) will be a clinic for all players who did not play in the league during the immediate prior season. Players who played in the league during the last season should not attend the clinic, and any new players who are not able to attend the clinic will still be placed on a team. Mites players are asked to attend from 10 AM to 11AM. Pee Wee players are asked to attend from 11 AM to 12 PM.
Required equipment: Helmet with cage, Hockey gloves, Stick, designated Official Northampton shirt. Shirts (2-shirt package includes one white & one black shirt, so opposing teams wear different colors) can be ordered prior to the season for $25. T-shirt orders properly completed before the deadline will include the player’s name and preferred number.
