Welcome to the 2021 "Bubble Cup" on MLK Weekend, January 16-18.
In 2020, the NHL established their "bubble" in Edmonton and Toronto to compete for the Stanley Cup. In 2021, North Park will establish our own "bubble" at Mackay to compete for the "Bubble Cup," a series of fun tournaments and skill competitions by age level. Should be a great weekend of hockey all around, with special giveaways and prizes, and let's hope this will be the first, best, and last "Bubble Cup" for North Park!
A club record three North Park teams won HVHL Championships this past weekend: Bantam Green (14U A), PeeWee Green (12U A TB), and Squirt Green (10U A1). We had three other teams finish runner-up: Bantam White (14U B), Squirt Black (10U A) and Squirt Blue (10U A1).
Our Mites also distinguished themselves in the first ever 8U Junior Rangers Cup Regionals on Saturday, with three teams (one in each of the A, B and C divisions) advancing to Championship Sunday at Madison Square Garden. We came close to raising the cup in at least one division, but came up short in two finals that ended in shootouts.
In addition, our PeeWee Green team advanced to play in the 12U NYSAHA State Championships, which unfortunately ended up being cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns.
Our first ever all girls team came back from 1-4 down in the finals to complete an undefeated four game romp on the shore and capture the title in the Girls Beach Bash in Ocean City, Maryland, last weekend. Congrats to Coach Katherine and all of the girls. We would welcome all girls interested in joining the fun!
All four of our 10U teams brought home banners by reaching the finals of their respective divisions in the 2020 MLK Liberty Cup in Philadelphia, with 10U Black and 10U Blue capturing titles. 10U Blue shown in picture celebrating with a “fun version” team photo.
The WSF Sled Rangers hosted our 10U White players yesterday evening in a Holiday Classic at the World Ice Arena. Big thanks to the New York Sled Rangers for sharing their sleds and gear, a fun scrimmage and post-game pizza. We encourage everyone to please support the WSF Biennial Fundraiser on February 4th at Bryant Park:
