We will be having preseason team meetings at the Jordan Valley Ice Rink conference room on Tuesday, July 23.  These meetings will let everyone provide important information about the 2019 – 2020 season.  The meeting times for each group of teams will be as follows:

  • Squirt and Pee Wee Team Meeting – 5:30pm
  • Bantam – 6:15pm
