Building off what is developing into an outstanding second season in the South Shore Conference, the King Philip Walpole Youth Hockey board of directors is excited to announce registration is open for the 2014-15 team tryouts.
Already this season, KPW has enjoyed success on a number of different levels:
- The Girls U14A, Bantam 3 and Squirt 4 teams captured District 3 championships.
- The Squirt 1 and Midget White teams finished second in their district tournaments and earned bids to the state tournament.
- The Bantam 2 team will play host to the state tournament.
- The U19B team won the South Shore Conference crown.
- KPW was one of only 10 programs throughout all of New England selected by the Boston Bruins to participate in a Bruins Alumni youth hockey clinic
- KPW introduced more than 30 first-time players to hockey as part of World Girls Hockey Weekend and USA Hockey’s Try Hockey for Free Day.
Growth plans for 2014-15
Looking forward to 2014-15, KPW will offer all of the travel teams, in-house and learn to play programs fielded this season, providing a hockey home for players of all skill levels and experience, from ages 5-18.
KPW also plans to continue building its girls program — with four teams and a girls Learn to Play program this season, KPW plans to introduce a U10 team and a new U8 development program in 2014-15.
The tryout fee is $50 per person, and registration and more details are available on the KPW Web site. The complete tryout schedule is listed under the blue ‘Tryout Schedule’ tab, and complete information about next season is available under the blue ‘2014-15 Program Offerings’ tab.
