Hello Hockey Players,
I wanted to update everyone on the status of the league for 2013. You have no doubt heard from your captains inquiring about your playing status this year and the push of the league start. We are working feverishly to secure field time for the upcoming season and overall have great news.
The great news is that we have a new field at Stanford that is waiting for us to break in. I know everyone is as excited as I am that we will have access to such a great facility and to create such a positive hockey experience for the league. Our communications with Stanford have been positive, but because of the newness of the field, Stanford scheduling for Fall 2013 has not been finalized.
The challenges … we will get a commitment for the league dates in the next few days and get the schedule together. We have been in continual communication with Stanford, but are waiting for the schedules of their internal coaches before releasing availability to outside groups. With this in mind, and with the leagues preference to play primarily at Stanford, the current status of the league is to start mid September and end closer to the end of the calendar year. We will target Sunday games when possible, but other weekend dates may be required to complete our season schedule. We are lucky to have access to such a great facility at Stanford and want a positive experience for the league, but we will have to work around the Stanford schedule. Thanks for your patience as we can get this worked out.
Key Dates for the League
• September 8: New Player Day at Saratoga High School. We have lot of new players and are excited to have them drafted into the league. Any questions should go to Katie (email@example.com).
• September 15: Proposed season start date. We will post the schedule on the cool new NCFHA website as soon as we get field confirmation.
Thanks again for everyone’s patience, but we are excited for a new facility and a great hockey experience for 2013. Go NCFHA!
