Regular Season

Founded in 1987 in Central Park, North Park is New York City's only not-for-profit elite-level travel hockey program. We compete in the Hudson Valley Hockey League and the Metro Elite Hockey League, and against other competitive hockey clubs in Long Island, Westchester, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Ages

Our travel hockey program in 2020-21 will be for players in birth years 2006-2013. We also have a developmental mites program available for players in the birth years 2014-2016.

When

Registrations for the 2020-2021 season are currently taking place and will be accepted until June 30, 2020. Tryouts/team formation will take place in early September 2020. If we cannot place your child on a team in September, your deposit will be refunded in full.

Where

For our 2020-21 season, we will have practices and home games at several rinks around the area, hopefully including a new rink in Long Island City (preliminary being called The Graveyard), Cutting Edge Ice Academy, City Ice Pavilion, MacKay & the Ice House.

Practices

Each team will practice twice a week. We will offer all players specialized powerskating training either in the regular practices (8U & 10U) or on an opt-in basis separate from the regular practices (12U and older). We also offer a weekly goalie academy for our goalies in addition to specialized goalie training in regular practices.

Games

Our teams will typically play 1-2 games per weekend, with a mix of league and exhibition games, plus league playoffs and/or ~2 independent tournaments. We target 35 games per season per team at 10U and older, and 20 games per season (one game per week) at the 8U level.

Jerseys

Uniforms for new seasons are typically ordered annually in May, but will take place in September this year. Practice jerseys, 8U Mite jerseys and other North Park accessories can also be purchased in when the online store reopens.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

This schedule is indicative and subject to refinement, in particular to the extent DOB permitting for Graveyard facility is delayed.

All practices will be full facility sheet per team except where noted. The Graveyard and Cutting Edge are 2/3rd size rinks, ideal for games at the 8U level and training/3v3 at older levels.

Head coach is listed on left in coaching assignments. Additional coaches will provide practice and game support.

September schedule will vary from above, and will likely include weekend sessions at Cutting Edge and Ice House until MacKay opens in October. 

We also have additional season-long, contracted ice not shown below at Cutting Edge on weekends and MacKay on Fridays and Saturdays, which provides back up and flexibility.

We are exploring potential collaboration with peer clubs in the NYC area. These discussions remain at a preliminary stage, but will become more clear, one way or other, before we conduct tryouts. Any sort of joint venture that we pursue would be done with the goals of tightening up the talent bands within every team to increase the quality of experience for all players, as well as providing our most talented and committed players with an opportunity to compete locally at a higher level than we can currently offer at North Park. Any sort of joint venture would initially get tested at the Bantam and/or PeeWee levels only.
