If your hometown Mass Hockey Program has a Midget Team and you are going to play for them you must make sure that your hometown team is not a “National Bound Team”. Massachusetts/USA Hockey rules prohibit players to be on more than one “National Bound Team”. If a conflict is discovered, the player’s first commitment would be to his “Senators Team”.


The fee for those who play on one of our teams will be $1495.00, which will include 2 game jerseys, practice jersey, 2 pairs of socks, equipment bag to new players to our program, practices, league games, Two local tournaments and the Mass Hockey State Tournaments for those teams that qualify.
