Starting the 2020-2021 hockey season NEZ Hockey and the Braves, Eagles and Northstars will work collaboratively to improve the competitive balance of our teams.
Starting in U13 (Peewee); NEZ, Braves, Eagles, and Northstars will host our evaluations starting with the Zone Peewee 1 team formation, then continue to form all our teams jointly. The same procedure will happen in the U9 (Novice) and U11 (Atom) divisions.
All U9, U11 & U13 players in Northeast Zone will continue to register with their home club and then will be combined for joint NEZ team formation. The Braves, Eagles and Northstars will continue to host teams in every category.
This is a very exciting initiative allowing the potential for greater development, increased involvement and more competitive balance on our teams within the Northeast Zone.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact:
All players from U9, U11 & U13 register with their home Operating Area for the BB program. All U7 (Discovery & Tim-Bits), U15 (Bantam) & U18 (Midget) players register directly with NEZ Hockey. U13, U15 and U18 players wanting to try-out for the AA program register directly with the Maple Leafs. You must NOT register with NEZ until you are released from the Maple Leafs.
