Congratulations to all who have been successful in securing spots on our EDGE teams. Be prepared for a season of hard work, good competition, and fun for all. Updated team rosters have been added to this site - check them out.
Some teams have elected to practice through the spring to begin the process of blending new players into teams and to continue the development of skills and team concepts. We also realize that many of you have committments to other sports, other family activities, or other spring hockey programs, and may not be available for all of our scheduled events. Try to make as many of these as possible and keep in shape by remaining active.
We have a number of clinics and camps planned for the summer and will announce those events later this month.
Let's go EDGE !
Edge Parents, players, and prospects,
Another season is drawing to a close, and just as quickly, another season is nearly beginning. In accordance with the rules of the Long Island League, tryouts have been moved up and will now take place even earlier than in past years. We expect competitive tryouts, so please stay in shape if your tryout is later in the schedule.
The goals for our organization have remained the same. We enjoyed great success on the ice this season – 3 of our teams competed in LIAHL playoffs, our Bantams won their division playoff, and our Midget 16 U team qualified for the NY State Tournament – the 4th team to go to states in the last 2 years. We also are aware that winning is not all consuming, and there are other values and considerations in determining the make-up of our club and the success of a season.
As an organization we try to balance movement and accessibility for new skaters, (whether from our house league or outside organizations) with stability from the families who have been here for years. We expect our players to show a level of involvement and commitment to training that matches the commitment they receive from the organization.
All of us - coaches, managers, administrators and parents must continue to keep in mind values and goals that go beyond hockey. These values include (among others) loyalty, self improvement, teamwork, dedication and self control – all factors in player selection and development.
Game and practice ice has been secured at Port Washington, Iceworks and Aviator to accommodate our schedules. More information with specific practice times and costs for next years program will be available prior to tryouts. We expect to continue having Eric Nates and his staff provide additional power skating and shooting training sessions.
Cost for the season is expected to remain in line with this years costs, provided no changes in rink fees need to be passed on. Anticipate a season fee of approximately $3000.00 per player. Jerseys and socks will cost $195.00. These fees include the fees for 2 tournaments per team and Nates skating. We have no fundraising obligations. Mite players will likely pay a lesser fee based on their cross ice schedule.
