Greely Girls Hockey Registration

GREELY/GNG GIRLS HOCKEY WANTS YOU TO JOIN THEIR TEAM NEXT YEAR! 

Is any experience required? No. In fact, one-half of the players on this years’ state championship team started playing hockey in high school. 

Do players new to hockey just “sit the bench” the entire season? No. The team has a long history of all players (regardless of skill level) getting meaningful playing time during most games. Every player on this years’ team had at least one goal and one assist during the season. 

What have some of the players that started playing hockey in high school said about their experience? 

     “Couldn’t have imagined a better team or better coaches. Everyone was supportive and encouraging” -- Lauren Gervais ’18 (started playing hockey sophomore year) 

     “The best sport to improve physical and mental toughness, but have the time of your life at the same time” -- Danielle Holt ’18 (started playing hockey junior year) 

     “I cannot express how much this experience added to my senior year. Being a first time player was fun, challenging, and fulfilling. I wish I had found GGH sooner!” -- Nettie Cunningham ’18 (started playing hockey senior year) 

How much does it cost to play? The only financial commitment to play next year will be a $250 registration fee, although players and parents will be encouraged to help with various fundraising activities. 

What about equipment? Full hockey equipment is required, but the team has a system in place for new players to borrow some equipment from other members of the Greely/GNG hockey family. 

How long is the season? Practices usually begin the first week of November and the season ends no later than the Saturday before President’s Day in February (i.e., you can play hockey and still plan a vacation for February break!!). 

Where and when does the team practice and have games? The team has a practice or game each day Monday thru Saturday during the season. All practices are in Falmouth (either at Falmouth Family Ice or Casco Bay Arena located next door) and are generally held right after school (i.e., there are no crazy early morning practices like some other schools have). There are usually two games a week during the season (one during the week and one on Saturday). Home games are at Falmouth Family Ice and the farthest away games are in Augusta and York. 

Who should you contact if you (or your daughter) is interested in playing next year or you have any questions? David Shapiro (Greely Athletic Director - dshapiro@msad51.org) or Dan Roberts (Team Assistant – DRoberts@maine.rr.com)
