    2021-22 SEASON

    Interested in playing for the NC Force/NC Golden Bears program in 2020-21? 

    The NC Force program started in 2015 with two teams and a desire to provide a place for every kid to play travel while providing quality coaching and a more affordable situation. Very rapidly the NC Force Program grew to be a top program in the Wake County area. In 2020-21 the program boasted 11 teams from U10 to U18. Of those 11 teams, 2 we known as NC Golden Bears U16AA and U18AA and were national bound. 

    In 2021-22 the NC Golden Bears will also include U14 AA National Bound and U12 AA. These will be partial tryout based teams. The Program has done a great job of building players internally and we will continue to develop those who wish to and have worked to develop their ability, but each year we understand that we are attracting players from out side the program who want good coaching and development, with reasonable costs and a more family friendly schedule.

    The NC Force Brand of the Program will remain in tact in that it will continue to take all who want to play Travel hockey as long as we have space, on a first come first serve basis. 

    If interested please fill out the google doc and Paul Strand will be in touch to discuss the options.

    2021 STRAND SPRING 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 MARCH 1 FOR $50 OFF.
