LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR USPHL TEAMS
Last week, the Utica Jr. Comets announced a merger with the Syracuse Stars that, for the first time in the history of Central New York, allows for players to remain and grow within the same youth program from Mites through NCDC (tuition free juniors).
The Jr. Comets will field five teams competing in the highly competitive United States Premier Hockey League (USPHL). At the junior levels, an NCDC and a Premier team. At the youth level U15, U16 and U18 teams.
The USPHL is uniquely positioned to facilitate a clear path way for players graduating from Bantam who are looking to progress through Midget and Junior Hockey on to college and professional hockey. Each division provides a critical step in the progression to fulfilling a player’s ultimate goal of becoming a collegiate or professional hockey player.
The Jr. Comets will hold an NCDC Early Bird try-out April 6-7 at Meachem Ice Arena in Syracuse, NY. The cost for this tryout is only $99. REGISTER HERE!
