Summer Pick Up League Hockey Champions!

As summer begins to wind down the summer pick up hockey league came to a close. The league, implemented for the first time during summer 2018, was a great success and enjoyed by a great many players. 
Pick up hockey differs from regular season hockey in that players are assigned to a team on a weekly basis with team configurations changing from week to week. This structure of play provides an opportunity for kids to play hockey with kids they may not have had the opportunity to play with during the regular season. 
Champions were crowned at each level of play: 14U (Bantams), 12U (Peewees), and 10U (Squirts).
