Need team website volunteers

11/30/2019, 7:30am EST
By Walt Milligan

As of today, we have volunteers for 13 out of 40 teams. 

The league cannot function if scores are not reported.  Please check the "Website Team Reps" tab to the left to see if your team has a volunteer, and if not, please talk to your coach and volunteer if you are interested and even moderately handy with computers.  The link for signing up is on the same page.

Click the "Website Instructions" tab to the left for more information on what is required from the volunteers.  After "learning the ropes", it takes less than 5 minutes a week to update your game scores, and you help is greatly appreciated.


Update, December 7.  We are up to 19 teams with representatives out of 40 teams.  Please check the list and help us fill out the volunteer team.

The season is built.  If there are any mistakes or you want to change a team name, please e-mail

As usual, we need each team to have a website rep to enter game scores.  See website instructions on the tab to the left.  If you can order from Amazon you can probably do this job, which is necessary for the league to function.

Team website reps should volunteer at the following link:

After this is completed, I will give you permission to edit your team pages and enter scores.  If you don't receive an e-mail within a couple of days, send an e-mail to  and don't be shy about pestering me.

Have a great season!


Update, November 20:  The list of current website reps is now posted, link to the left, and it will be updated regularly.  If your team is not seeing game results posted, check the list to see if you have a rep or not.  If not, talk to your coach and volunteer!

As of November 12, some associations are not sure yet what their 16/18U teams will be, due to high school and JV team cuts not being made yet.

The Districts will need to be either the weekend of Feb 7 or 14, to be determined later.

High Performance Clinics are now scheduled for November 5 and 6 from 6-10 pm at Houghton County Arena.  Coaches must attend both nights to get credit.  There will be lots of on-ice time.  

Bob Mancini from USA Hockey will be the lead instructor.

These clinics will move a Level 1 to a Level 2, or a Level 2 to a Level 3.  They will not count for obtaining Level 1 or Level 4.
