Start preparing for High School hockey now!

If your hockey player has the desire to compete at the high school level, our Modified Hockey program will position your player to succeed. The mission of the Clarence Hockey Club is to provide a quality hockey experience 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.

The Clarence Hockey Club participates in the Western New York High School Club Hockey League (WNYHSCHL). Practices will be limited to twice a week and will begin in March. The season will consist of 10 games, played on the weekends (including Easter) through June 4th.  Student cost will be approximately $350.00.

Player Qualifications:
To qualify, eligible players must be a 7th or 8th grade student enrolled at Clarence Middle School. Students must have been no older than 14 years old on August 31, 2016. 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.

Experienced hockey players who have played at the House or Travel level are encouraged to sign up.  Students are required to attend all tryout dates and have full hockey equipment to be considered for the modified hockey team.

Private school 8th Graders that live in the Clarence school district that have not committed to any of the Catholic School teams (St. Joe's, St. Francis and Canisius) may play for the Clarence Modified Hockey Club providing that the club does not cut any current Clarence middle school students.  No 7th Grade private school student may play for the Clarence Modified Hockey Club, regardless of what district they live in, unless they enter the player pool and get assigned to Clarence by WNYHSCHL. (not likely, since ALL public school students that tried out and were cut by their school will have 1st rights to assignment on a team in need).

Seeking Coaches
Adults interested in coaching a modified hockey team, should contact Joe Heim using the Contact tab.    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 your paragraph here.
