Travel Hockey

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 2004-2014. We also have a developmental mites program available for players in the birth years 2014-2016.

When

Tryouts will take place in early April 2020. Please see "Tryouts" under the tab "Programs" for details and registration. Registration for Tryouts is free of charge.

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 ordered annually in May. Practice jerseys, 8U Mite jerseys and other North Park accessories can also be purchased in when the online store reopens in May.
