2019-2020 NC Force Youth Program

The 2019-2020 Season will be NC Force 5 Season. Beginning with a U16 and U18 team in 2015-2016 the Force have grown each season. Designed as a program that is family friendly the Force, led by Paul Strand, focuses on quality coaching and leadership as the primary factor for development. 

NC Force ice time is weekend based and is again done by design. Monday through Thursday is reserved for families, school and other activities. Kids are shaped as they grow older and the Force understand that Hockey may not be their sport or activity of choice. NC Force feels that it can provide high level competition for those who want nothing but hockey, while simultaneously providing a quality place for those who have multiple focuses in life. 

In 2018-19, The NC Force program fielded 5 youth teams, U10, U12 Upper, U12 Lower, U14 and U18. 

In 2019-2020 the Force intend to keep moving forward and will provide a place to play for all those who want it.

2019 SPRING PLUS MINUS TOURNAMENT

Details: 

A one of a kind on ice experience, the NC Force Plus/Minus is the best spring tournament and all the hockey you will need to stay in shape for tryout. It is once a week and is as game like as any tournament can be. The game like format provides all the off-season on-ice conditioning needed in order for a player to stay in game shape or just enjoy competition as school winds down

As well, the format FORCES players to play both ends of the rink, back-check, fore-check, play offense and play defense. Score is kept not by how many goals an individual gets, but how many goals a team gets and keeps out of their own net. Due to the unique structure you will find the players going harder at the end of the session than the beginning in order to keep their weekly plus/minus lower. Great ACTION!

Players are placed on teams each week and the attempt is made to make teams as even as possible. Players need to let NC Force know each week if they will not be attending in order for the most competitive teams can be formed.

The team with the best plus/minus is given a weekly prize. Something small like a roll of tape or pack of hockey cards or $5 Chick-Fil-A gift card, etc. The individual plus/minus are recorded for each player and each week they are on different teams. At the end of the summer the Plus/Minus for each week are tallied and the top three PLUS players are given a prize.
