You are cordially invited to tryout for the 2018-2019 Eastern Mass Senators Midget Hockey Teams at our tryout camps on April 11 – 14, 2018. We are looking forward to our 28th season of highly competitive hockey.

Our program has a history of excellence and success. This requires dedication and a commitment from all of our players and staff. We expect your attendance at our games and practices, which will result in us continuing this excellence and success. Your commitment to us will reflect in YOU getting the most out of our program!

This year our Midget Program will consist of Senators 18U, 16U & 15 Tier I, Senators 18U & 16U Premier and Senators 18U Elite.


One of our tryout camps will be held at Cushing Academy in Ashburnham, Ma.

The tryout dates & times for those specific teams for ALL Players will be on Thursday, April 12th @ 5:00pm @ Cushing Academy & Saturday April 14th @ 12:00pm @ Cushing Academy.

We will hold our other tryout camp at The Burbank Arena in Reading, Ma. You are encouraged to attend as many of these tryout sessions as possible. Each player will have the opportunity to attend ALL of our tryout sessions, which are listed below. The tryout fee is $50.00 if you register by mail. If you register at the tryouts, the fee will be $75.00. If you did not play for a USA Hockey Registered Team in the 2017-2018 season there is an additional $48.00 USA Hockey Registration Fee.

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 tuition for those who play on one of our teams will be $1595.00, 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 as well as League Championship Tournaments for those teams that qualify. The tuition is payable prior to our first game. All players selected will also be required to sell 4 – $25.00 Raffle Tickets as part of our fund-raising efforts to help keep our cost down.
