REMINDER: Travel Team Uniform Purchases & Fittings
This is a friendly reminder. If you need uniforms for next year and haven't yet ordered and been fitted, please plan on doing so this week!
Uniform purchases and fittings are now available. Like last year, registration and purchases of uniforms for Squirt, Peewee, and Bantam must be done online through our Registration page. All Squirt, Peewee, and Bantam players must have a home and an away jersey. You are not required to purchase a new pair of jerseys if your existing pair fits.
We are requesting that all purchases and fittings be done in the month of July.
Please use this registration if you are a Squirt, Peewee, or Bantam player in need of new uniforms for the 2015-2016 season. Uniforms must be purchased online. Fittings will be handled in person at the NEPA/Blue Heron store in Leominster at 300 Hamilton St in Leominster.
Uniforms must be ordered in pairs, one home jersey, and one away jersey. Cost will the $115 for the pair. Please pay online via credit or debit card if possible. If paying by check to the PO box, uniforms will not be ordered until payment is received.
For your fitting, please visit the NEPA/Blue Heron showroom at 300 Hamilton St in Leominster. You may go there any time after your registration during their business hours. You will receive an email confirmation after registration. Please bring this and provide to NEPA at the time of your fitting. We will reach out to you separately to take care of number assignments for new players. Please remember to bring your shoulder pads to the fitting. You will need them to ensure a good fit.
Please make sure that you indicate in the form during registration if you are a new player or an existing player requiring a new number. Our Apparel Director will reach out to you. We will do our best to work with you, but please understand that not all number requests can be accommodated.
UPDATE: We've had enough registrations to go forward with the program. Thanks for your interest! If you have already registered, please go back online and pay at your earliest convenience. If you are still interested in registering, we still have plenty of available slots. The first session is this Saturday, July 18 @ 9:00 at Cushing Academy.
Walkons will be accepted at a rate of $20 per session. This is out of fairness to families who committed for the whole series.
We understand this is very short notice, but Twin City Youth hockey will be conducting a six (6) session clinic this summer at Cushing Academy led by Coach Thibault. There will be six, fifty minute sessions, held Saturday mornings at 9am running from July 18 to August 22. Sessions will focus on skating and skills and is open to all players.

New Members -- Import your schedule into Google Calendar
Many of you already are doing so, but for those who have not yet, here is a video explaining how you can add your team's schedule directly into your Google Calendar so that it is available on your Android smart phone or computer.
Welcome new members. There have been many questions recently on accessing schedules for your team, particularly from new players in either No Player Left Behind, Learn to Skate, and House Hockey. Accessing your schedule is easy.
To do so, use the Team menu above in the horizontal navigation menu. From there, choose select Choose a Team, your division, and then your team. For example, U11 No Player Left behind would be Team -> No Player Left Behind -> U11 NPLB.
You will also begin to receive email notifications approximately two days before each scheduled practice or game. The email will let you know the date, time, and rink that you will be at. For those that are new, there are two rinks at the Civic Center, Gaetz and Landry. The Gaetz is the rink closest to the street. Landry is next to the Gaetz and is separated by the parking lot.
