Travel Hockey

Founded in 1987 in Central Park, North Park is New York City's only not-for-profit elite-level travel hockey program. We compete in the Hudson Valley Hockey League and the Metro Elite Hockey League, and against other competitive hockey clubs in Long Island, Westchester, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Ages

Our travel hockey program is for players in birth years 2004-2012. We also have a developmental mites program available for players who are not yet ready for travel hockey in the birth years 2012-2014.

When

We have completed team formation for the 2018-19 Season. If you have interest in joining North Park next season, we will be holding tryouts in early April. You can also contact northparkhockey@gmail.com if you have interest in checking out a practice prior to tryouts. Pre-tryout practice participation will be subject to USAH and NYSAHA protocol with respect to players currently registered with other programs.

Where

For our 2018-19 season, we will have practices and home games at several rinks around the area including Bryant Park (Devt Mites) Cutting Edge Ice Academy (Travel Mites), City Ice Pavilion, MacKay & the Ice House.

Practices

Each team will practice twice a week, with additional specialized training opportunities on a more occasional basis.

Games

Our teams will typically play 35-40 games in a season across regular season, league playoffs and 1-2 independent tournaments.

Jerseys

Uniform orders have been completed for the 2018-19 season. Orders for next season will be taken following team formation in April 2019.
