The NYHA will be hosting the second annual CSU Women's vs Nederland Bantam/ Midget team fundraiser game this next Sunday Jan. 18th, from 9:00 am - 10:00 am at the Nederland Ice Rink (come early to watch CSU warm up at 8am).

This is a free family event open for everyone to attend. There will be a raffle of both CSU and NYHA items benefiting the Nederland Youth Hockey Association. There will also be a CSU Women's team autograph session after the game.

Kids: Come on out to the RINK, have a hot chocolate, bring your favorite jersey or hockey stick to be autographed, and watch the number 2 nationally ranked CSU Women's team compete against our Nederland U-16 team! Watch Nederland's own CSU rookie, Sarina Perret skate back in her home town as her middle level and high school friends take on this challenge!

CLINICS THIS WEEKEND

Adam Durkee Clinic (all ages)

Saturday, December 28, 8:30am-12pm

Nederland youth hockey alum Adam Durkee, who currently plays with the Fort McMurray Oil Barons in the Alberta Junior Hockey League, will be running two intense sessions which will help you, among other things, improve your stride, cross-overs, backwards skating, balance, speed, acceleration, agility, stick technique and shooting. You absolutely cannot afford to miss this one, if you're in town for the holidays. We'll start with ages 11 and up from 8:30am-10:00am, and yes, that means all the way up -- adults are encouraged to join us! The second session will run from 10:30am-12:00pm and is for ages 10 and under only.

Cost: FREE (donations accepted)

Please RSVP in a comment or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it if you plan to attend, so we have an idea of numbers. See everyone there!

2014-2015 Registration EXTENDED

  • Print
  • E-mail
Given the delay with opening registration, we're going to extend the close date by a few days. Our Registrar may be able to offer more detail. Our primary constraint is that we need kids registered in time to submit rosters ahead of the first round of games (complete schedule here: nedhockey.com/schedule).

People are also starting to experience sticker shock, and we totally understand. Once again, the idea here is that RINK is now charging its user groups for volunteer hours, then selling them back to volunteers at $9/hr. Volunteering wasn't happening, and rink managers were picking up the slack and getting a very raw deal. It takes over 1000 volunteer hours for one ice season at our uncovered multi-use facility.

Solutions might include:

* Decreasing the volunteer burden by improving the facility. Major inefficiencies include trying to do tennis and ice on the same slab (transition) and the lack of a roof (snow removal).

* Fundraising for the RINK. We would certainly benefit from some corporate sponsorship, for example.

* Getting the Town to subsidize their park. Most other small towns running rinks have a Parks and Rec department. We're trying to balance everything on the backs of our users and our generous but overburdened volunteers.

If you have other ideas, or you think you might be able to help with any of the above, or you want to volunteer for RINK, please let us know.
