The mission of the Clarence Modified Hockey Club is to provide all Clarence Middle school students a quality hockey experience for that reflects a sense of school pride and a commitment to excellence. Our goal is to instill in all participants the excitement of personal development, working as a team and respect for others as they prepare for competitive high school hockey.
Attention 7th and 8th grade boys and girls
The Clarence Hockey club will be hosting tryouts for the middle school hockey teams. Experienced hockey players who have played at the House or Travel level are encouraged to sign up.
There will be a Student Meeting in January 2015 at the middle school to announce tryout dates and locations. Check the website www.clarencemodifiedhockey.com and listen to Morning Announcements for the date, time and location for the Student meeting.
Practices will be limited to twice a week and will begin in late March. The season will consist of 12 games, played primarily on the weekends through June 30th. Players will be ranked based on their skill level and placed on a team that would compete at that skill level in the divisions set by the Western New York High School Club Hockey League (WNYHSCHL). The four divisions ranked by difficulty are: AAA, AA, AA/Mixed and House.
To qualify, eligible players must be a 7th or 8th grade student enrolled at Clarence Middle School. Players must have been no older than 14 years old on August 31, 2014. No 6th or 9th graders, regardless of their age. Any 8th grade student that has competed at the JV or Varsity level in 1 or more games is ineligible to compete at the Modified level.
Interested coaches should email firstname.lastname@example.org with their contact information. Coaches need to be at least Level 1 completed this season and have USAHockey Bantam or higher module done and will need to do the AAU Positive Coaching Alliance on-line course (free and about 2 hours). Level 4 or higher coaches do not need the USAHockey module for AAU coaching, but still needs the AAU PCA course.
