Men's House League: 3 Days to go!!!

As a reminder, this year’s deadline for registration for all Men's House League (MHL) players will be Friday, OCTOBER 31, 2014.  A $250 late fee will be charged for all registrations that occur after this date. *** Please note that all past due accounts must be paid before you will be allowed to compete in any MHL skating event. ***
 
Please follow the following four (4) steps to register your yourself for both General Registration and Men's House League programs at the New Canaan Winter Club.  This process looks more intimidating than it really is and the following steps have been provided to make the process an easier one for you.  Please follow these steps precisely as they will save all of us a lot of time.    
 

  1. Go to www.usahockeyregistration.com and register yourself with USA Hockey.  Please make sure you register yourself by clicking "Ice Players and Coaches.”  You will receive a code that has nine (9) numbers and the first five (5) letters of their last name in it.  It is suggested that you print out the USA Hockey registration confirmation (complete with number and barcode) for your records.  At a minimum, please write down your USA Hockey confirmation number for yourself and keep this information available for completing Step 4 in the Winter Club’s registration process.  You will need to pay the $47.50/player USA Hockey registration fee (Including $7.50 for the CHC) via credit card.  

***The fourth digit in your USA Hockey number must be a 5.  This indicates you are submitting a current registration for the 2014-15 season.
 

  1. Please print out and complete the NCWC Consent to Treat and Waiver of Liability form (one per family), which is found on the Documents tab on the home page of the NCWC website.  Mail this signed form to:

NCWC – Head of House Committee

% Annie Watson
905 Silvermine Road
New Canaan, CT 06840
 

 ***If you or your wife have already completed this step when you registered some of your family members for Travel Hockey, Junior House League, Figure Skating, etc... you can proceed to Step 3.  Otherwise, please complete Step 2.
 

  1. Register all family members for General Registration 2014-2015, who intend to skate at the Winter Club at anytime during the season, including general skating. 

 
***If you have already completed this step when you registered some of your family members for Travel Hockey, Junior House League, Figure Skating, etc... you can proceed to Step 4.  Otherwise, please complete Step 3.
 
Please follow these following steps:
 

  • Go to www.ncwinterclub.com
  • Click on Register Online on the left column
  • Click the 2014-2015 General Registration button
  • Log in by entering email address and your password; if you do not remember your password, then just type in your email address and hit submit.  Your password will be automatically sent to your email address.  PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE REGISTERING BY USING THE EMAIL ADDRESS THAT YOU SENT TO THE WINTER CLUB’S REGISTRAR WHEN YOU FIRST JOINED THE CLUB.  DO NOT REGISTER USING A NEW EMAIL ADDRESS UNLESS THE WINTER CLUB HAS BEEN NOTIFIED ABOUT YOUR NEW ADDRESS AND HAS IT ON FILE AS YOUR PRIMARY EMAIL ACCOUNT. 
  • Register parents first as your information will automatically transfer to your children’s account information.  Click on each family member's name that you need to register and follow instructions for completing the Emergency Contact information, Code of Conduct, and Consent to Treat and Waiver of Liability form.  When you are completing the medical information for each child, please type the word NONE in the appropriate boxes if the particular medical issue does not apply to him or her.  If you do not do this, then the system will not register your child.  Please repeat this step again for each family member if you have not done so already.  Please verify that each family member has been successfully registered by seeing that 2014-2015 General Registration is listed next to or underneath each child’s name. 


***It is not necessary to print out Consent to Treat and Waiver of Liability form again as you have already completed this requirement in Step 2*** 
 

  1. Finally, you need to register yourself for the Men's House League program. 

 
***Please note that the system is set up so that you must successfully register for General Registration before you can complete this step***

JHL Information and Evaluation Sessions on 11/2 and 11/4

The 2014/15 Junior House League (JHL) season is quickly approaching, and we are very excited about the upcoming season and look forward to seeing everyone back at the Winter Club!

For our new members, the JHL program is divided into two groups: JHL I (developmental league) and JHL II (comprised of 4-6 teams that play against each other with games starting in December).  JHL I exists to help the younger hockey players - boys and girls - gain the skills that are necessary to advance within the Winter Club’s hockey program and/or to encourage any older child to take up hockey as a first time participant.  The entire JHL program is for hockey players four years old through the fourth (4th) Grade.  

For your convenience, please review the following administrative issues that pertain to JHL:  

  • All skaters will be required to wear their full hockey gear for these evaluation sessions.  For first time parents of hockey players, sweat pants are an easy alternative to wearing hockey socks over your child’s shin pads.  

***Winter Club gear colors are: red helmet, red pants, and red gloves.  Your children are welcome to skate in any colors that they want to but I mention this information for anyone, who is purchasing new gear***

  • Place a piece of white tape on the front of your child’s helmet with his or her first name and last initial on it.
  • All skaters will be required to wear throat guard protection and this policy will be strictly enforced once we begin skating at the Winter Club. 
  • We anticipate that the first weekend of skating at the Winter Club for JHL will be November 9th and we will email you once the Rink Manager lets us know about our start date.  Note that we will not have any JHL skating during the Thanksgiving weekend, which is November 29th and November 30th.  We will resume normal JHL skating on December 6th.
  • All members of this distribution list can expect timely emails that will keep everyone informed about upcoming JHL events. 
  • Our JHL schedule for both Groups I and II should be finalized by November 17th, which will enable parents to plan accordingly for the entire JHL season. 
  • If any parent with hockey experience is interested in helping coach as a volunteer in either JHL I (developmental league) or JHL II this season, please email me at .   Our philosophy is the more, the merrier so do not hesitate to contact me if you are interested. 

 

Please see the information below for the appropriate evaluation times for your children:

 

JUNIOR HOUSE LEAGUE:

The JHL evaluation schedule will be determined by each player’s last name so please look below to find your child’s corresponding tryout time:

Players A-H:

Sunday, November 2nd at Darien Ice Rink from 10:10 AM - 10:40 AM

Players I-Z:

Sunday, November 2nd at Darien Ice Rink from 10:40 – 11:10 AM

 

Players A-H:

Tuesday, November 4 at Darien Ice Rink from 6:00 -6:30 PM

Players I-Z:

Tuesday, November 4 at Darien Ice Rink from 6:30 – 7:00 PM

 

Ideally, we would like for everyone to attend their corresponding tryout slots on BOTH days, but you are welcome to bring your child on either time slot for convenience purposes.  If your child cannot attend any of these dates, please send me an email at and we will evaluate your child at the start of the season.

For planning purposes, JHL parents should anticipate the following time slots for their children throughout the hockey season:

Junior House League-

  • Saturdays: 10:45 AM–12:45 PM
  • Sundays: 7:30-9:30 AM

Please realize that each of these weekend slots is divided into two, one hour sessions on Saturdays and two, one hour sessions on Sundays.  The exact times will be announced after evaluations are concluded and the Winter Club opens in early November. 

 

Best,

Mike Holland

SENIOR HOUSE LEAGUE (SHL) ANNOUNCEMENT

NOTE: THIS IS A ONE-TIME(R) EMAIL BLAST FOR NEW MEMBERS AND OTHERS NOT FAMILIAR WITH SENIOR HOUSE LEAGUE (SHL)

 

There’s something about the coming of Game 1 of the World Series (especially if the NY Metropolitans are not involved) that turns my mind toward puck! Yes, indeedy, it’s that time of year again to start thinking about lacing ‘em up and hitting the ice for the fun of it….it’s SHL time and it’s right around the corner!! The sign-ups have been coming in fast & furious but we have room for more, so keep ‘em coming.

                   

WE WILL HAVE OUR EVALUATIONS (ICE & WEATHER PERMITTING) IN 3 WEEKS AT OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED TIMES ON FRIDAY, NOV 14 (5:40-6:40P AND 6:50-7:50P) AND SUNDAY, NOV 16 (12:45-1:45P). More on our evals will be going out soon to all our registrants, but just keep these dates in mind.

 

QUICK BACKGROUND: SHL is co-ed, no contact ice hockey for grades 5th-9th and attendance is NOT MANDATORY. Basically, it’s glorified pick up hockey that is timed, supervised, refereed and played in FULL EQUIPMENT – MEANING EVERY BOY AND GIRL MUST COME WITH FULL COMPLEMENT OF PROTECTIVE GEAR THAT INCLUDES HELMET (WITH MOUTHGUARD), SHOULDER PADS, GLOVES, PANTS, SHINGUARDS, SKATES AND STICK (AND YES, WE’LL SUPPLY THE PUCKS!). We normally play Friday and Saturday evenings prior to general skate and Sunday mornings from 9:45-10:45A on a rotating basis. The schedule allows each team 2 games per weekend that are 1 hour each.

 

Depending on our final numbers, teams are divided by way of DRAFT into 4 or 5 teams that are coached by volunteer parents, most of whom are experienced and addicted hockey guys & gals, but not all, and we welcome other parents who would like to come out and assist (whether it be coaching, going on hot chocolate/donut runs or helping man the timer’s box – which incidentally is the best seat in da house for game viewing!).

 

YES, SHL is OFFICIALLY ON!! COME GET SOME!!
