NCWC FALL 2016 MIDGET HOCKEY PROGRAM

NCWC is pleased to once again sponsor split year season Midget teams to give age appropriate players the opportunity to prepare for their High School seasons.  Last year while we had some growing pains the program was deemed a success and provided an opportunity for players to get some quality ice time and play in some competitive games.  We spoke with many of the participants in the program and have incorporated many of the suggestions and hopefully negated some of the issues that will enhance and improve the program.

Program structure:

  • U18 Midget Major Team – Will play in CHC Tier 2 and aim to make the CHC playoffs once again.  We will shoot for 20-25 games, 1 local tournament

  • U16 Midget Minor Team – Will play as an Open Division team providing more flexibility in scheduling. We will shoot for 20-25 games for this team as well

  • NCWC Host/Sponsorship: Like last year NCWC is the sponsoring organization both for insurance and league membership assistance.  Preference will be given to NCWC families however players do not have to be full members of the NCWC to participate and the rosters will be rounded out that way.

  • One (1) full sheet practice for the combined teams like last year – worked out great to get all the boys out together.  We will have 4 dedicated coaches including Clark Jones, Chris Taliercio, Jamie Hanford and Dave Cochran.  We will always have a professional coach on the bench for all games and multiple coaches at all practices.
  • Player Evaluations: NCWC under Clark Jones’ direction will coordinate and conduct tryout/evaluation process for placement purposes.  The goal is to have some on ice evaluations in the early part of August.  All decisions on placement will be made through their evaluations.

  • We anticipate the same structure of last year of approximately $1400-$1500/ player.  We won’t know the exact amount until we get some ice costs etc, but if we get the numbers we expect we will be able to keep it at those levels.  Given the coaching, number of ice slots and games that is a very competitive lev. 
  • Summer Skates: Depending on ice availability we expect to be able to schedule some summer skates.  There is / will be work going on at several of the rinks including Darien & Terry Connors taking their ice away so look for emails as to when we can get some availability.

Registration process / What we need from you:

In order to move forward we need everyone to register On-Line for the upcoming season.  We will not be collecting any funds until tryouts but need to get going on numbers and scheduling. There are a few steps to the process:

  1. Every player must have a valid USA Hockey number for the 2016-17 season.All USAH’s memberships expire on Aug 31st so all will need that.The registration link can be found on the NCWC tab under USA Registration (5th tab down) or at: http://usahockeyregistration.com/

  2. Every family will have to go to the Register On-Line tab and do a General NCWC registration. Link: https://leagueathletics.com/Registration/Default.asp?n=48904&org=ncwinterclub.com

  3. Every player will then need to be registered on via the Midget program selection again under the Registration On-Line tab: https://leagueathletics.com/Registration/Default.asp?n=48904&org=ncwinterclub.com
