This level is comprised of players that are in 10th-12th grade, who want to play hockey but for various reasons, don't play for the High School team. STMA plans 2 teams this year, that will compete at the B level. (Blue team / Gold Team) the teams will play in different 'divisions', so they should not play each other in regular season play. The teams play in the Metro Hockey League.
The Junior Gold teams are formed after the High School tryouts are completed. Players can register with USA Hockey prior to the HS tryouts but can also wait until the HS tryouts are over and register before the first practice, mid November.
Junior Gold will have approximately 4 practice / inner squad scrimmages before games begin. The Junior Gold League games will start the first week in December and run through the end of February. The games are 90 minutes long. Each team will have 3 tournaments during the season, 2 of them in metro area, 1 out of the metro area.
In addition to the USA Hockey registration fee, the cost for skaters will be $750.00 with payments being split up into two due dates. (Dec. 20, $400.00 and Feb. 20, $350.00)
Goalies in Junior Gold play for FREE. (must still pay the USA registration fee.)
There will be a parent / skater informational meeting the end of November.
We ask the family to volunteer in the penalty box, game scoring (away games) and running the clock (home games).
We also require parents to attend the out of town tournaments, or to designate another responsible parent to act as guardian for the trip.
