Remember, the NE District will not issue Temporary Cards for anyone.  It must be an extreme circumstance to even be considered.  Compliance deadline for coaches of split-season teams(Midgets) is October 31, 2014.  This includes National and Non-National Declared teams.  Compliance deadline for coaches of all other teams is December 31,  2014. 

Also, please remember that coaches will not be placed on a roster until they have completed their SafeSport training.  In addition, please check very carefully whether your current Level 3 certified coaches that expire 12/31/14 need to attend a Level 4 clinic. 

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Newport Christmas Tournament

Hotel Reservations


One again, our entire travel program, mite thru bantam, will be going to the Newport Christmas tournament.  The dates of the tournament this year are Dec 27, 28 and 29.  The game schedule is usually published a month or so before the tournament.

We have a block of rooms at the Hotel Viking as well as a block of rooms again at the Courtyard Marriott in Middletown.  This year we have a LIMITED number of rooms at the Hotel Viking.  I am hoping that our Bantam teams will choose to stay at the Courtyard Marriott, to allow the younger kids access to the knee hockey that the Hotel Viking provides in their ballroom – but I cannot dictate where you make your reservation. 

To book at the Hotel Viking:

Call the Hotel Viking at 401-847-3300 - you need to speak with in-house reservations, not central reservations.  Be sure to ask for the AVON HOCKEY rate, which is $109/night plus tax.  Parking is an additional ($12/night), as are rollaways ($15/night), if you need one.  There are a limited number of rooms with 2 Double Beds – if you don’t need a room with 2 beds, please book a room with 1 bed in the room.

UPDATE:  The Hotel Viking is SOLD OUT of our room block




To book at the Courtyard Marriott:

Call 800.321.2211 and reference the Avon Hockey Room Block at the  Courtyard Newport Middletown Marriott to make their reservations at the group rate.  Again, it would be best to speak with in-house reservations as opposed to central reservations.

They may also book directly online by using the below link:

Second LTS session

by posted 11/21/2014


Ryan is a beautiful nine year old boy from Bristol, CT who is non-ambulatory and non-verbal. He lives with his parents and brother in a two story, cape-style home that needs to be renovated to meet his needs and growing body. Currently there is only a full bath on the second floor and Ryan needs to be carried there to be bathed. As his weight climbs to over 50 pounds this task is becoming more and more difficult. Ryan’s parents are hoping to renovate a small half bath on the first floor as well as Ryan’s bedroom which is already unable to hold his entire medical and mobility equipment. This renovation will enable Ryan’s parents to continue to care for him at home!!

We hope you will attend a silent auction fundraiser on November 7th at the Farmington Club to raise money for this much needed project. Please visit for more information.
