Hello Memorial Sports Center Hockey Players, Coaches, and Enthusiasts;

                On Sunday October 8th please join us in kicking off the 2017-2018 Ice season at the Memorial Sports Center with a day of cross ice “indoor pond hockey” to benefit the Expansion Project that will finish the final phase of renovations to MSC started in 2007. This fun day of hockey for a great cause will consist of 45 minute game blocks, starting at 9 am and continuing throughout the day, in which teams of 5 players total play 3 v 3 cross ice scoring on wooden slot goals.  It is an exciting and fast paced style of play and a great way to meet up with hockey friends and start the season off with some fun!

  -Teams of 5 play with three players on the ice at once per team with substitutions "on the fly”
