2022-2023 Mountain Top Ice Hockey Information
Mites (U8) League
Registration is now open for the Mountain Top Mites (U8) League. As always, this team will practice in Montclair as well as surrounding towns. We have a great opportunity to use a "new" rink in the Ironbound Section of Newark, so expect some practices to be held there. Games, as always, will be played as part of the Morris County Youth Hockey League at Mennen Arena in Morristown.
The Mountain Top Mites (U8) League season consists of 20 weekend games, one or two scrimmages, end of season jamboree and up to 10 practices (about 35 ice sessions) starting in September. Registration $900
All players are required to have a current USA Hockey registration number. You can get it by going to this link: USA Hockey Registration
Middle School (Grades 6-8) League - Must have previous ice hockey team experiance to join. If newer to team play, please see PeeWee league information below.
For players who are in 6 - 8th grade, we once again will be offering our Mountain Top Middle School League, again out of Montclair State Arena, but run by Mountain Top League. Practices will be held in Montclair, as well as surrounding towns (Ironbound Section of Newark). Games will be held at Montclair State Arena. This league is perfect for recreation players, as well as travel players who want extra ice time as the games are normally scheduled so as not to conflict with travel games. Our season consists of 10 games, and 5 practices. There will also be end of season playoff games. Registration is $ 400.00
Squirts (U10) and PeeWee (U12) Leagues
This year we do not feel we will have enough players to sustain playable teams for the Squirts (U10) and PeeWee (U12) leagues under the MTL league's name. This being said, we are recommending all players interested in playing in a recreational league register with Montclair State Arena. The Montclair JR RedHawks Youth Hockey League is for players not wishing to or not ready to play travel hockey, the Montclair State Arena offers a recreational in house league for Squirt (U10), and PeeWee (U12) age players. Weekly Practices and Weekend Games make up the season, from October 2022 through March 2023 at the Montclair State Arena. The program is typically 20 weeks, with one game and one practice per week. The 2022-23 Season will include Home and Away jerseys and game socks, as well as helmet stickers! A JR Redhawks Spirit Wear Store will also be available! Registration is $1,400 per player. There is a lot of ice time for that price, about $35 a practice/game. A registration deadline of August 1, 2022 is in place so that they have enough time to size and order jerseys by the first game. A $350 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit is required by 8/1/22 to hold your spot and order jerseys. The balance remaining is due by 9/1/22. On ice evaluations will begin mid-September to October 1st. For more information, email the Hockey Director, Mike Liu at MLiu@montclairstatearena.com .
Please make sure to note the registration deadline of August 1st, as noted above. Even though we won't be able to support these leagues, this season, we want to make sure our players stay on the ice and continue loving the sport of hockey. We will do our best to request that all MTL players are added to the same team at MSU.
If your player is in 6th grade, they are welcome to join our Mountain Top League Middle School team, which will play at Montclair State Arena. More details to follow. Please email us your interest, and we will make sure to send you all the information you will need.
