Are there any practices?

As of now there are no practices. Depending on registration and requests, we may add a practice/clinic for each team.

Each team will be coached by an experienced yeshiva high school hockey player and each coach provides instruction to their team before, during and after games. Therefore, it is important to not miss any games if possible in order to keep up with the progress of the rest of the team and league.

Does skill level matter?

No. All skill levels are welcomed. Teams will be filled as equally as possible with players of all skill levels.

What should I do if my child is a beginner?

If your child is a beginner, there are options to have either a private or group lesson for a fee with the directors and/or another coach per request. Please contact us at sarfhl@gmail.com to schedule a private or group lesson.
