Janas Rink Update 10/12/17

Janas has now been open for one week and most of the feedback has been very positive.  They are still actively working to make further improvements.    We all have responsibility to help keep Janas looking good, so please be sure our players and families are behaving appropriately inside the facility.   There is no ball playing or indoor street hockey allowed in locker rooms or lobby areas.  The only hockey is on the ice.   Let's not leave it to rink management to babysit our kids -- we can all help instruct kids on proper behavior.  

 

Thank You!

GLYSA Board of Directors

Massachusetts State Hockey Tournament

Many Greater Lowell Hawks teams decide to participate in the Massachusetts State Hockey Tournament.   We will update information about the tournament here.

For more information please see the Mass Hockey Tournament Website.

Here are a couple key things to know as it relates to our program:

  • DISTRICT - We are in District 10.  Each district gets to send a team at each Level/Size/Tier to compete in State Tournament.   Teams in district include Cambridge, Melrose, Stoneham, North Reading, Tewksbury, Malden, Reading, Wakefield, Medford, Somerville, Wilmington, and Greater Lowell.
  • LEVEL - States exist for Squirts (10U), Peewee (12U), Bantam (14U), and Midget (18U).  There is no Mite division.  
  • SIZE - We are considered a "SMALL" program and get paired up against other "SMALL" programs.  This is based upon average number of players at Squirt, Peewee, and Bantams being 29 or less.   
  • TIER
    • The top team from each of our league age groups will play at the "Tier 2" level.   (Ex. Squirt 1's, Bantam 1's)
    • The second team from each of our league age groups will play at the "Tier 3" level. (Ex. Squirt 2's, Bantam 2's)

 

To qualify for States you need to either:

  1. Be the only team in your district at your Level/Size/Tier or
  2. Win Play-Down Tournament -- matchup of all disctict team at Level/Size/Tier
