January 2019: Challenge Games and More

Welcome back to hockey in the new year! 2019 is starting off with a bang with our challenge games… and more!

First, we’re having our normal 4 challenge games on January 6th. We’ll do 2 early and 2 late and sandwiched in between will be a half-ice skills clinic and a half-ice goalie curious session.

First, the challenge games… as usual, please sign up for a game where you can learn and play safely. While it’s good to challenge yourself, please only do so within your safe limits. Remember that in the advanced games, skaters do not ‘play down’ in the same way they do during the regular season MGHA games. As always, HOps reserves the right to shift players if we feel you have signed up for an unsafe level.

You may sign up for one game right away. On Saturday, January 5th at 4 PM, you may sign up for a second game if there are spaces available. We’re also looking for a few bench coaches for the beginner game. If you feel you have sound hockey knowledge and can help our beginners, feel free to sign up!

In the middle slot at 7:10 PM, we’re hosting two special events. First, we’re having a session we like to call ‘goalie curious’. Basically, if you’ve ever wanted to try goalie, now’s your chance. We have limited equipment and we’ll do what we can to get you suited up but this is first come, first served based on size. We want everyone to try it, but our resources are limited.

In addition to ‘goalie curious’, we’re hosting a mini skills clinic. This is intended as more of a shake-off-the-rust kind of clinic to get you back into the groove. This is more geared toward beginner and intermediate players, but all are welcome. Please sign up so that we know how many plan to attend.

The night will be scheduled as follows:

4:50 PM – High Intermediate Game
6:00 PM – Advanced Game
7:10 PM – Goalie Curious / Mini Skills Clinic
8:20 PM – Low Intermediate Game
9:30 PM – Beginner Game

See you on the ice!
