Draft set for September 8th

The SCHSHL draft will be held on Thursday September 8th at 7:00pm at the Rinx.
Players and/or their parents do NOT need to be there. Players will be contacted within 48 hours to advise them of their team or if they were not selected.

If your school does not have an ice hockey team, or if you tried-out for your school’s team and were cut, you have to submit the Draft Form on the Draft page under the LINKS tab above and a $300 deposit to be eligible.

On-Line Registration forms and deposits will be accepted until the night before the draft. Personal checks will be accepted until 8/31; Cash, Credit Cards, Money Orders and Certified Funds after that.

There will be a league representative at the Rinx on September 7th from 6:00pm-7:00pm to accept deposits.

Registrations Looking Up for 2016-2017

Player and Team registrations are UP for the upcoming 2016-2017 season.
Preliminary counts show 18 Freshman, 10 JV and 12 Varsity teams. Several clubs have multiple Freshman teams and once again, we have a club with two Varsity teams.

Was it Northport/Huntington and Smithtown/Hauppauge recent trips to the National Tournaments?
Was it the local NHL teams making the Stanley Cup Playoffs?
We don’t know but let’s continue the trend. If you know a hockey player not playing for his/her school, get them to contact their school club; there may still be roster positions open. No school club? Enter the draft (see Draft link on the menu bar) and get skating.

Local player receives state scholarship.

Bob Allen Scholarships

In 2000 the New York State Amateur Hockey Association named their scholarships after its long time President and Director Emeritus, Bob Allen. Each year at the Annual Meeting of the New York State Amateur Hockey Association, four scholarships are awarded to High School or Prep School Seniors going on to college. The $1000 scholarships are awarded based on the individuals participation at school, with their community, and involvement in youth sports.

This year, William Sergio from the Sachem Flaming Arrows was one of the four winners.
Will will be studying Naval Architecture and Design for a year at either Georgia Military College or Marion Military Institute and then on to the US Coast Guard Academy for 4 years.

Congratulations William.
