Hello Hockey Families!!!!
Here is a little update on happenings and hockey season.
This Wednesday evening is our New Player Information Meeting and equipment handout from 6:00-8:30.
The ice is open for all members this week. There is nothing structured on the schedule for hockey, just open ice. The Figure Skating Club has the ice reserved on Wednesday night from 7:00-9:00.
Next week we will begin with our "pre-season" ice for squirts, peewees, 12U and bantams. There will be practice times for these different age groups starting on Monday. This time will be used to get our players back on the and preparing for the upcoming season.
The week of October 25th, we will begin tryouts for squirts and peewees. The plan is to field both B and B1 teams at both of these levels. Teams for these levels will be announced on Monday, November 1st.
The week of November 1st begins our regular season with practices for all age groups other than High School. The Varsity and JV will begin practice on November 8th. Practice times will be very similar to last season and will be updated on the calendar in the next day or so. Please remember to check the calendar frequently for changes and updates.
Games schedules for Peewee, 12U and Bantams are nearly complete and should be on the calendar in the upcoming days as well. Schedulers around the area are just beginning the scheduling of squirt and mite games, so please bare with us as we get these games hammered out.
I look forward to seeing everyone around the arena in the upcoming weeks!!
The Hazen Winter Sports Board of Directors is pleased to announce that we have formally approved a project to replace our aging ice plant/refrigeration system. The budget for the project is $950,000, and will include the new system and its installation, as well as a separate new building of approximately 30'x40' to house it. The new system will be expandable to accommodate a 2nd studio/smaller practice rink in the future if HWS ever decides to pursue such a project. HWS has enough savings and investments in our portfolio to cover about 2/3 of this project ourselves, but we are targeting $250,000 in a fundraising campaign to cover the rest. This fundraising campaign is being spearheaded by Mandy Senske and our Events/Fundraising Committee, and is well underway. HWS has a GoFundMe page set up for your convenience, but to save the GoFundMe service charge you can also mail your donation directly to HWS.
