If your child likes to play ice hockey, summer doesn’t mean the end of the season for Town of Oyster Bay youngsters; indoor Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center in Bethpage will provide the venue for the Summer House League Ice Hockey Program.
Registration will be held on Tuesday, May 1 and Wednesday, May 2, at the Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center, in Bethpage Community Park, at Stewart and Cherry Avenues, from 6 to 9 p.m. Space is limited and registration will be done on a first-come, first-served basis for kids between the ages of seven and 13. If there are still openings after May 2, registration will be conducted in the recreation office at Town Hall South, 977 Hicksville Road, Massapequa, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
To register, a parent or legal guardian will need to bring a copy of the child’s birth certificate, proof of Town of Oyster Bay residency (a tax, utility bill, etc.), and a check or money order. These documents must be provided even if the child has been in previous town programs. The fee to register is $150 for one child or $225 for two or more children in the same family.
Players will get two evaluation sessions, eight games plus playoffs and a jersey. Games will be played Sunday mornings and Monday and Thursday evenings. The season will run from July 22 through August 30. Participants must wear full ice hockey gear. The schedule of games and an equipment list will be distributed at registration.
