"Greetings Warrior hockey alumni, and hope that all is well with you!
We’re 3 months away from celebrating 102 years of hockey in Clinton NY. We received confirmation from local authorities that the Clinton Arena has set aside 4 hours for our alumni hockey games on Saturday, Feb 8th between 10 AM and 2 PM. We wanted to get the word out now, so you can plan…and fire up your blades in advance, for some tuning up.
How we set the games up will entirely depend on turnout. Based on the TYAP 2018 games, the Hockeyville games last September, and the enthusiasm shown at the impromptu TYAP 2019 ”Over 50” game at Sage Rink in February, alumni player spirit continues to rise. The games have been an absolute blast, while our Warrior camaraderie has extended well beyond the teams with whom we originally played.
As such, we’re expecting more than 100 players to return again. In addition, there is possible interest in a Warrior Women Alumni game as well. With that kind of participation, we may be able to carve out more ice time—so this increases the importance of knowing who’s interested ASAP, for ice scheduling purposes.
At this early point, we envision the following TYAP 2020 Alumni Game Program:
Note: All games “running time” with 3 periods
For the Over 40 alumni players, the “Recreational” and “Competitive” distinction is designed to create games that are safer and more fun. We will provide you an easy self-evaluation method which will enable us to slot you into a game that is best. It is also our intention to spread all participants evenly among the 4 teams, to ensure an equal amount of ice time happens for everybody.
So that’s the gist. We need to start planning now, so please let us know your interest in playing by Sunday, November 17.
Please go to the link below and fill out the applicable information so we can gauge participation and develop a plan.
As feedback comes in, we will periodically update everybody —so you’ll know who may be participating or not.
By December 1st we will take a final poll of those who want to confirm participation. Thereafter, we will begin the process of putting together the teams.
Really hope you’ll make it—and looking forward to another successful TYAP celebration!
