Nassau Hockey League is open to boys and girls living in and around Princeton, NJ and the Hopewell Valley area. Our mission is to create a fun and relaxed environment for kids to make new friends while teaching them to skate, play the game of hockey and to have a good time. We strive to create a safe and disciplined environment where kids are able develop sportsmanship, respect for others, and also a strong work ethic. It’s common at the end of the season for parents to remark how much their children have developed on the ice. But just as often (and perhaps even more importantly), we hear how Nassau Hockey has helped to improve and transform their kids behavior off the ice as well. Hockey is a competitive and sometimes demanding sport. It often creates situations which require kids to dig down deep and to constantly reach for new goals. Nassau Hockey provides kids with an environment to grow both as hockey players and to develop character and skills that will serve them well in all facets of life.
The underlying key to the success of the Nassau Hockey tradition has been the restraint and support of the parents in helping us to create and maintain a constructive, low key atmosphere at the rink. We also are fortunate to have a high degree of participation from parents both on and off the ice. Your direct involvement is always welcomed. Just ask how you too can be involved!
Nassau Hockey has 3 divisions loosely based on age, although we have plenty of overlap to accommodate the outliers.
Juniors – Ages 4-7
Seniors – Ages 7-12
Varsity – Ages 11-15
The registration process will open up in August on our website. You'll be asked to first register with USA Hockey and then you can register for the appropriate house league division. Nassau Hockey Travel team tryouts will take place September 13-14. Our travel teams are comprised of many of our best house league players who are looking for a bit more competitive play against other metro area clubs.
Please do not hesitate to contact me, if you have any questions about Nassau Hockey!
