ECRHA Message Board
Come visit the ECRHA Message Board at www.ecrha.net. With school beginning shortly, the board is picking up again. If you are a current member of the league, a captain, coach, or authorized representative of your club, you may access a private message board not visible to the general public. The aforementioned persons can read the MB, but only ACC Reps can post responses. To be granted access to this board, you should send an email to [email protected] , state your name, club affiliation, and interest in access. This special ACC Message Board, along with the ECRHA Newsletter, is the lifeline of our communications; as we are no longer using mass email to contact the ACC about current events.

October 12-14 come have fun with us at Skate Safe of America and see 40 College teams participate in the ECRHA Pre-Season Jamboree. Come see incredible college games such as Division 1 teams playing Division II teams, rematches from Nationals, and two extra-extravagant featured games:
1. Battle of the Sexes: The W-MLRH team, NY Flash featuring Long Island's own Lindsey Reilly, will head up against a very special ECRHA Lottery Team. The ECRHA Lottery team will not be announced until the day of the game. Read about the NY Flash and Women's hockey at www.mlrh.com.
2. ECRHA Selects verse the NJ Riot: The NJ Riot currently play in the MLRH since 1997 with Christopher Puscian as the General Manager and Coach. The NJ Riot will head up against a very special ECRHA Select team; lineup to be announced later the summer. The ECRHA announces and congratulates the 2 coaches that have been selected to coach the ECRHA Selects. They are Coach Kevin Murphy of Penn State Altoona and Coach Robert Mariano of Boston University. Read about the NJ Riot at www.riothockey.com.
*Editor's note: The ECRHA does not promote or endorse checking in roller hockey. All ECRHA games are non-check, including games played at ECRHA events against non-ECRHA teams.
