      As we are going into the coldest part of winter, we know that spring cannot be far behind because we are beginning to plan for the spring, summer, and next fall already.  We will soon be making decisions and advertising the following programs; so please keep checking this spot for information regarding the following programs which are to come:

      • ADM to Squirt Transition Camp

      • Checking Clinic for those moving into the Bantam program

      • Pre Tryout camps for those who want to keep sharp for the Tryouts

      • Summer League

      • Tryout Info including Costs and Schedules

      ADM to Squirt Transition Camp

      All ADM participants who were born in 2006 will be moving into the regular squirt teams for next season.  That means that they will need to tryout to determine which squirt team would be the best placement for them.

      Our tryout schedule is being developed, but there will be three tryout sessions and all participants are to attend all 3 sessions.

      In order to help our members who have been participating in the ADM program feel confident and do well, we will be holding a Transition Camp prior to the tryouts.  The schedule for those camps will be posted here shortly; so keep your eyes on this spot.

      The cost of the camp will be a very economical FREE; however you must register for the camp and that registration will be available here shortly as well.

      December Board Meeting

      The next Board Meeting will be January 21, 2015 at 7:00 in the office on the second floor of PIA.

      ADM / Mite program

      Do you have a new young player who would like to learn to play hockey or a young player who would like to further develop hockey skills he may already have?  Players born in 2006 or later must participate in a cross ice ADM program.  We are taking registrations for our ADM program. 

      Our ADM program season has two sessions each week, on Monday and Saturday, and includes participation in our Thanksgiving Tournament.  For more details on the program click here.
