Western Mass Vipers Will Field Teams at the 14U, 16U and 18U levels for 2017
The Western Mass Vipers will field split season teams at the 14U, 16U and 18U levels for 2017. The teams will skate with the Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League (EJEPL) this Fall and the EJEPL games will be complemented with a strong independent schedule. The Fall season will consist of two single-team full-ice practices a week and approximately 20-24 games, including tournaments. Following tryouts in mid-March, the 16U and 18U teams will conduct a series of spring practices and skate in a least one spring tournament. The Vipers are a not-for-profit organization and our ice fees are determined only by our expenses. (For the Fall 2016, these fees were $1150 per player as detailed in the menu tab.)
The 18U head coach is Mike Rousseau. The 16U team will be coached by Dan Kearns. The 14U head coach is Bill Grise – see bios below. Check back in the coming days for tryout/open skate details.
