HOW MANY TEAMS DO WE ANTICIPATE FOR THE 2021-22 SEASON
The developmental program is made up of players from kindergarten to 6th grade. Players must pass a learn to skate program to enter our program as a mite. Players that play 8u will be placed on the cross ice mite team. We have had 2 teams at this level the past few years. We expect to have one 10u team and one 12u team. These teams all play an independent schedule. We also plan on a middle school, jv and varsity teams.
WHERE AND WHEN DO WE PRACTICE?
We practice at our home rink, Baierl Ice Complex, 103 Marshall drive, Warrendale, pa. Our practice ice slots are select Tuesday and Thursday from 4-5:20 p.M. And Sunday 6-7:20 p.M. The developmental program game slots are Saturday from 7-8 p.M. The Tuesday slots are ear marked for the ms/jv/varsity teams.
WHAT ARE THE COSTS FOR EACH TEAM AND WHAT DOES IT INCLUDE?
ARE UNIFORMS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?
No, the developmental program is required to have a team jersey and matching socks. The fee will be ~$40-50. At the beginning of the season, your manager will handle ordering any jerseys and you will need to provide 3 number choices. For the PIHL teams, the player is required to have an away/home game jersey that costs ~$100 each, plus socks.
WHO ARE THE COACHES?
In the developmental program, we have wonderful volunteers. Each volunteer has passed a background screening process and has gone to USA hockey certified classes to coach their particular age specific team.
