Preparing for the 2020-2021 Season

As the COVID-19 Pandemic appears to show signs of slowing down, we hope that all of our players, coaches and families are well and remaining vigilant.

USA Hockey has opened the on-line registration for the 2020-2021 season and we encourage players & coaches to register with USA Hockey now as we prepare for the hockey world to reopen. Registration can be found on the USA Hockey web-site www.usahockey.com  by clicking “Become A Member”. You should print one copy of your registration receipt (bar-code) for each team on which you will play and one copy for your records.

  • Returning members must use your same name as last season so your records can be synchronized.
  • New USA Hockey members will have to submit proof of birth date and citizenship at a later date.
    Be sure you have a copy of your Birth Certificate, Passport, Adoption Papers, Naturalization papers or other Government issued proof available when requested.

 

Adult Members:
Background Screenings will now be handled directly through USA Hockey. USAH has selected NCSI to provide its background screening. All adult coaches, officials, board members, employees, volunteers, and anyone else who will have regular interaction with, or authority over, athletes under the age of 18 are required to submit to a background screen before any such interaction with those athletes. Go to www.usahockey.com , scroll down and click “Background Screening”.
For members who were last screened after April 1, 2019, for the 2019-20 season, their screens will be valid for the 2020-21 season. If a members most recent screen is from prior to April 1, 2019, the member will need to be screened under the new system in order to participate in the upcoming 2020-21 season.

NYSAHA Extends Scholarship Application Deadline

NYSAHA Bob Allen Scholarship Program

Updated 3/29/20

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are extending the deadline for applications this year. With schools closed we understand students are having a difficult time getting transcripts and letters of recommendation. Please continue working on your application and send in what you have completed. Once schools reopen we will establish the new deadline. Good luck and be well.

Scholarship Deadline Extended

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 School & Business closures, obtaining school transcripts and references has become increasingly difficult. Therefore, the April 1st deadline for scholarship application submissions has been extended. When the restrictions are eased, a new deadline will be published.

2019-2020 Season Ending Friday March 13th

As many of you know, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are school closings and sporting event closings happening all across Suffolk, Long Island, New York and the whole country.

With so many schools cancelling their sports programs and their hockey teams adhering to that decision, the SCHSHL has decided to end our 2019-2020 season after Friday March 13th.

This will complete the JV regular season (no playoffs) and leave the freshman season 39 games short and again, no playoffs.

More information to follow as it becomes available or necessary.
