The NC Golden Bears Tryouts at the U11AA, U12AA, U14AA are closed for new registrations. If you are looking for a place to play within the NC Force program we do have limited spots available for the NC Force teams which will play in the Carolinas Hockey League. 

The NC Force teams are competitive teams that are not tryout based. These teams are well coached by experienced Coaches with hockey backgrounds. The NC Force is a place for players who:

  1. a) simply want to play at a travel level of competition, without the heavy travel costs and/or
  2. b) is part of the pathway to our growing NC Golden Bears AA program. 

We are a program with a pathway that strives to put kids where they can succeed based on not only their skill level, but also takes their physical development into consideration. All kids develop at different rates physically and mentally and it is our job as an organization to recognize that and envision a future for each of our players based on that growth. 

If this interests you then please fill out the NC FORCE interest form below: 

Sincerely,

Paul Strand

2021 STRAND SUMMER PLUS MINUS TOURNAMENT

A one of a kind on ice experience, the STRAND +/- is a spring tournament like no other. The game like format provides all the on-ice conditioning needed in in an enjoyable format with no pressure after a long season of demanding practices and coaches barking orders.

As well, the format FORCES players to play both ends of the rink, back-check, fore-check, play offense and play defense. Standings are kept by +/- and not by goals and assists. 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 +/- lower. Great ACTION!

Players are placed on teams each week and the attempt is made to make teams as even as possible. 

The team with the best +/- are 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 +/- are also recorded for each player, each week. At the end of the summer the +/- for each week are tallied and the top three Plus players are given a prize as well as a prize for the Green Jacket (highest minus).

PLUS/MINUS SELLS OUT EVERY YEAR IN A HURRY. 

PLEAE NOTICE THE EARLY BIRD SPECIAL - REGISTER AND PAY BY MAY 15, 2021 FOR $100 OFF.
