The goal of our “A” programs is to provide a balance between cost and providing the best program for our players. The program is designed to give the players the opportunity to develop skills, for those who want to play at AA or AAA while also providing a fun, competitive environment for the players who are happy at A. These teams are invite only (see below for dates). The teams will be entered in the NSSL.
Dates and times are based off previous seasons. These may change once we have our schedules from the HRM. Teams will be notified of any changes.
