House League registration is open!
by posted 04/10/2019


 

What is House League?

Junior Railers House League is designed to provide players of all abilities with an opportunity to play quality, competitive hockey in a supportive, friendly environment with a level of commitment (both in terms of time and money) which is as manageable as possible. We put an emphasis on developing every child, both as a hockey player and as a young person, over the course of the season. We cherish the fact that our House league coaches and players both compete against each other, yet help and support each other at the same time. We have worked hard to build a hockey league which feels and functions like one big, happy family.

Practices for each team are run on half-ice and follow USA Hockey's American Development Model (ADM) to maximize each player's repetition through the drills and time touching a puck. Games face two House League teams in the same age group against each other on full ice with 2-3 USA Hockey-certified on-ice officials plus a scorekeeper.

Parity & Evaluations

Players undergo evaluations at the start of the season (late August / early September) and are then divided equally per age group based on skill (roughly 12-15 players per team) to ensure parity and competitive play between teams each week.  

Schedule

Typically practices (50 minutes) occur on Saturdays, games on Sundays at local hockey rinks such as Horgan Skating Arena in Auburn, MA or Worcester Ice Center in Worcester, MA, with opportunities to play at other high-profile rinks over the course of the season (see Highlights, below). We try to keep this schedule as consistent as possible for the season, which runs from September through March, however it is subject to change based on enrollment.

Highlights

  • Highly consistent schedule at local venues (see Schedule, above) you can count on and plan around
  • No-checking at all age levels
  • Opportunities to skate at Warrior Ice Arena (the Boston Bruin's new practice facility)
  • All players can optionally attend a weekend tournament for House League teams (last season in either Dover, NH or Portland, ME)
