WHO IS WINNING IN THE ECRHA
After 5 ECRHA weekends with 4 events counting towards ECRHA stats, any conclusion as to who's going to emerge as #1 this season is impossible to predict. The races in both Division I and Division II are wacky with no prediction being valid. Any team can take it. This upcoming weekend's round the clock event in Rahway will add to the tight races. Come on down to Center Circle and join us! See big games this weekend like James Madison U vs. University of Rhode Island, Northeastern vs. U of Delaware, Towson vs. Boston, Maine vs. Neumann, Millersville vs. Wentworth.
ECRHA TO SEND SELECTS TO NARCh
The ECRHA Selects will be competing in DI at NARCh Winternationals in Las Vegas this coming January. The Selects will be headed by Coach Kevin Murphy of Penn State Altoona and accompanied by the ECRHA President, Commissioner, and team trainer out to Nevada in January. While the roster has currently not been released, you can expect to see top talent from the Eastern college teams of the CRHL. The ECRHA Selects players will also be available to discuss their college roller hockey programs and educate the public about CRHL and ECRHA. ECRHA is seeking to raise $3000 in funding for this venture and humbly requests that if anyone would like to make a contribution, please send any amount to ECRHA even if only a few dollars. We are also looking for sponsorship relationship. If you are interested in assisting the team, please contact the ECRHA President Rebecca Breitel 516-238-4040. Any support of the college program is appreciated.
NARCh will also be host to a CRHL Elite Tournament Series at Winternationals. CRHL will qualify 16 member college teams who will compete in the college Division. For more on this, please visit www.crhl.net, which has recently undergone a great makeover.
Mike Jones from Williamsport YMCA: Thank you for your assistance in the recent Williamsport event. You recruited 40 children for the free Hockey College Clinic and helped make it our most successful clinic so far this year. Your tribute to Penn State's fallen player Ron Dax was beautifully conveyed in the absence of many still not feeling the strength to speak aloud. We appreciate your flawless support. Thank you to Betsy, Anna, and Amy Yoder of Alafia for their beautiful song in prayer of Ron and a gorgeous rendition of our National Anthem. The Williamsport event was refreshingly redeeming after the suffocating snowstorm that brought tragedy upon us last January.
That's it for now. Don't forget to register for the Winter Break Event! The event is packing out quickly and only a limited amount of spots exist!
