Greater Lowell Hockey travel teams play in the Valley Hockey League. Mite 8U teams play a cross-ice format following the USA Hockey ADM model. Our organization consists primarily of players from the Greater Lowell area, including Lowell and Dracut.
The program ages range from our Mite 8U program for children 8 years old and under, up to the Bantam 14U program for children up to 14 years old.
Our season begins the week of Labor Day and ends by mid-April. Tryouts are typically held mid-March for the next season.
Practices are held at the Janas Rink in Lowell, MA, and games are held at various rinks across the region.
Practices are held 2 times a week on Tuesdays (skills) and Wednesdays (team practice), with occasional weekend practices on Saturday or Sunday morning, depending on game schedules. Off-ice skills sessions run in the Fall and Spring when weather allows use of outdoor space at the rink.
Our Mite 8U teams play a 25 game season and our Squirt 10U through Bantam 14U teams play a 35 game season, plus playoffs. Midget 18U teams play an 11 game season in preparation for high school season.
Custom game jerseys with player names on the back are included in the tuition fees for each year, along with one pair of game socks.
If teams choose to play in a tournament during the season, these costs are extra and will be collected by coaches or team managers. These costs vary depending on the tournament, and can range from $100-$300 plus lodging costs.
