YOUTH HOCKEY

Amateur hockey development has been a major focus on Long Island since the Islanders were founded in 1972. In those 40 years, the development programs have grown exponentially. Today, there are year-round clinics to teach kids of all ages the essential skills needed to play hockey.

The Islanders also help to develop youth hockey on an international level by hosting foreign teams for a tournament at Nassau Coliseum every January and by sending Long Island Pee-Wee players to a world-renowned tournament in Quebec City.

The Islanders are committed to growing the sport of hockey on Long Island and around the world. These programs, funded by the ICF, are the building blocks of that growth.

Islanders Jamboree

Every year, the Islanders host several youth hockey tournaments geared toward local in-house teams on Long Island. The Jamboree is a day-long event that features cross-ice games for mini mite and mite teams. This past season the Islanders Jamboree was held in November and featured sixteen teams from across Long Island. It was a day of smiles, sportsmanship and hockey for all the young participants.

Hockey Across America Weekend

Hockey Weekend Across America took place from February 28-March 2, 2014. The effort is aimed at two major objectives with a weekend of events at the local and national level to promote the game of hockey. The weekend's festivities are used to celebrate the game of hockey and all involved in the sport throughout the nation using all means possible.
