A MESSAGE TO OUR AIH FAMILIES | JUNE 29, 2020:
We understand there is still a lot of uncertainty regarding the scheduling of upcoming events and what next season will look like for our club. Please keep an eye on this space for the latest information:
1) Registration is currently open for the 2020-21season. Because of all of the uncertainty due to coronavirus, we have decided NOT to require the initial $250 deposit to register, but we do ask that you take a moment to fill out this registration form so that we have your commitment to participate this year. As an added incentive, we are also offering an exclusive Abington Ice Hockey "swag" item for everyone that signs up before July 4th. (You can still register for the club at any time during the summer, but why would you wait if you can get something cool for free, right?!)
You do not need to fill out the paperwork packet (yet). I am trying to simplify this process for everyone this year! In the meantime, you can go ahead register your player with USA Hockey. (Player registration numbers need to be renewed every August, and no player who hasn't registered with USA Hockey will be permitted on the ice when practices begin.
Register with USA Hockey here: https://membership.usahockey.com
2) Practices for the club next season will be held on Mondays at the Flyers Skate Zone (10990 Decatur Rd., Philadelphia). We are still awaiting word from the rink on the exact slots, but we are expecting the start times to be similar to what we had at Wintersport (5:30 for Middle School, 6:40 for Varsity).
3) We are currently seeking a head coach for our Middle School Team. Please contact us if you are interested.
4) Another unfortunate result of the pandemic is the cancellation of our annual University of Delaware Training Camp in August. However, we are still planning to host an intensive 2-day training session for all Varsity players filled with on and off ice activities. The sessions will be held at one or more of our local rinks and will not require an overnight stay, but the scheduling and format will be in line with what was done in the past. More details will be coming soon as things come into focus.
Even more information about the club and next season will be sent out or posted here soon. If you have any questions in the meantime, please reach out to me via email, text or phone: 610.209.7310
