    ** UPDATES**

    Our Stampede teams are off and running

    Our Stampede teams are off and running (pun intended! LOL). Practices have been happening all month long at rinks in Central New York and, while not always convenient, these rinks have offered our players, coaches and families what they have missed most… being on the ice! We both applaud and appreciate the flexibility of our families as we continue to book ice for the month of November. Please check with your coaches for updated practice schedules and locations, as they should be available soon.
    This week, it was announced that SUNYAC is canceling all winter sports, so we are fairly confident that we may not be returning to the IcePlex this year. With no college games taking place, it’s unlikely they will continue operating the rink at full steam. We have not received official word on this and anticipate we will have news from MAC/IcePlex management next week, but in the spirit of transparency we wanted to keep you updated. THIS DOES NOT MEAN WE WILL NEVER RETURN TO THE ICEPLEX!!!! This also DOESN’T mean anything will happen to the Center State Youth Hockey organization. We are devoted to bringing youth hockey to this area and will continue to do so as long as we have players who want to play!

    Practice Update for October Only

    By Admin 09/24/2020, 9:30pm EDT

    PRACTICE UPDATE FOR OCTOBER ONLY:
    * Ice has been secured for practices for the month of October (we are waiting on times to be confirmed)
    * Practices will be held ON THE WEEKEND
    * Mites, Squirts, and PeeWee teams will practice at Lysander and Utica
    * Midgets will practice at Whitestown
    * SUNY Morrisville is revisiting their "no visitor" policy on October 5th so we will have a better idea of what the next few months will bring.  If we are able to go back to the IcePlex, we will do so beginning November 1 and resume a practice schedule similar to last year.  If we are unable to return to the IcePlex, we will provide you with practice schedules and locations at that time.
    * As always, please reach out to president Chris Lott via phone (315-368-7288) or communications director Heather Howard via text (315-436-3341)
    * No matter what happens with the IcePlex, CENTER STATE PLANS TO MOVE FORWARD WITH OUR SEASON AND WILL DO EVERYTHING IN OUR POWER TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN FOR OUR KIDS!

    10U Evaluation Process

    By Admin 09/17/2020, 8:15pm EDT

    2020-2021 

    10U Evaluation Process 

    $45 registration ($15 per hour of ice time) 

    Evaluation location: Lysander Ice Arena (2725 W Entry Rd, Baldwinsville NY, 13027) 

    3 separate teams consisting of 11-20 players based upon assessments made by independent evaluators: Independent travel 

    Snow-belt White 

    Snow-belt Blue 

    Ideally, we will have 3 separate teams consisting of 11 players each. Our goal is to place “like-skilled  players on like-skilled teams.” 

    Adjustments will need to be made to the evaluation process if a significant number of more or less players  register for the evaluation. We anticipate 30+ players. 

    Snow-belt Blue evaluation 

    Players are not required to attend the evaluation process if they choose to play on this team. 

    Evaluation dates: 

    Saturday, September 26th (9:30 am – 10:30 am)

    Maximum 18 player roster and 2 goalies 

    We anticipate 15-20 players taking part in the evaluation process for this level. Must attend evaluations for consideration of placement on the team. Attending all days of  evaluations is recommended to give evaluators more time to observe your player and give them  the best opportunity to make this team. 

    Failure to attend evaluations due to situations out of your control will be evaluated by the board  on an individual basis. (We recommend prior written notice describing your unique situation so  we can plan accordingly) 

    Players with the highest evaluation results from September 26th will have the option to try out for  Independent travel if they so desire. (The number of players advancing to the Independent travel 

    tryout will be dependent upon placing “like-skilled players on like-skilled teams.” We anticipate  a minimum of 5 players advancing.) 

    You will be notified by September 27th if your player has been selected to advance to the  Independent travel team evaluations 

    Players who advance to the Independent travel evaluation will automatically earn a spot on the  Snow-belt white team if they are not selected for the travel team. 

    Independent travel evaluation 

    Evaluation dates: 

    Sunday, September 27th (9:30 am – 10:30 am)

    Team selection based on assessments made by independent evaluators

    We anticipate 15-20 players taking part in evaluations

    If you are not selected to the Independent travel team you will automatically receive a spot on the  White Snow-Belt team 

    Failure to attend evaluations due to situations out of your control will be evaluated by the board  on an individual basis. (We recommend prior written notice describing your unique situation so  we can plan accordingly)
