1) We should have our summer schedule at Port Washington by May 13 at the latest. 2) Our practice/game slots should be set by the end of May 3) Game schedules should be set by mid August with LIAHL 4) All rosters as sent out will remain set as is and there will be NO player movement at this time. The staff has worked hard to set competitive rosters. Of course with our 8U and 10U teams we realize that we have a long way to the beginning of the season and would hope/expect some players to improve before the first puck drops at which time we might be able to to take another look at players/rosters.
The primary goal of our program is to help each player realize their full potential as hockey players, by fostering competitiveness and sportsmanship in an environment that promotes the fun of the game, so players have a great time while developing their skills.
We hope that ice hockey becomes a passion and a lifetime sport. There are many, many steps along the way to that end and one way we measure success is by taking the long view and seeing youngsters eagerly adopt hockey into their lives.
That said; please understand that travel hockey is a competitive activity. The following is intended to help guide your expectations on specific aspects of the functioning of our program.
Our program consists of six teams ranging from Mite 8U to Midget 18U. Our coaching staff is dedicated, knowledgable and qualified. All coaches are required to attend annual coaching conferences to ensure our organization remains up to date. The sport is growing vastly across the world, including on Long Island.
The Bruins organization takes pride in our reputation for sportsmanship and respectable conduct. We abide by the USA Hockey Zero Tolerance Policy for unsportsmanlike behavior that prohibits verbal abuse of players, spectators or officials during any USA Hockey covered function.
