Edge players celebrate victory at NYS Tournament

First ...Congratulations to the EDGE teams for their success this season and good luck in the LIAHL playoffs.

I AM PROUD OF THE TEAMS THAT HAVE MADE THE LIAHL PLAYOFFS.

 OUR  PEEWEE MINOR, BANTAM MINOR,BANTAM MAJOR, AND MIDGET MINOR TEAMS WILL PLAY IN

THE LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES.  OUR 2ND  MIDGET MINOR TEAM ALSO

FINISHED IN THE TOP 4 IN THEIR DivISION, BUT LEAGUE RULES ONLY ALLOW ONE EDGE TEAM TO COMPETE IN THE

LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIPS.


In addition to the top finishes in the LIAHL, Edge Teams at the 2004, 2001 and 2000 levels all made the playoffs in the EJEPL.  

EDGE TEAMS WON the EJEPL  CHAMPIONSHIPS  at two levels --  2004 and 2001 !   

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL FOR THEIR HARD WORK, DEDICATION TO THEIR TEAMS, AND

FOR THE SACRIFICES  MADE OVER THE SEASON TO INSURE SUCCESS. I HOPE IT

SERVES AS A MODEL FOR OUR YOUNGER TEAMS TO KEEP  SKATING, KEEP LEARNING,

AND KEEP DEVELOPING AS PLAYERS AND TEAMMATES.


A note from the EDGE PRESIDENT:

I have been running the EDGE Hockey program for over 25 years - ever since I was asked  "Can you do me a favor and help out...".  Today I am asked "Why do you keep at it?  Isn't it a lot of work, and sometimes a headache or two?"

The answer is simple...I love hockey and what it has meant to the hundreds of families 

that have had players with the EDGE over the years.

I love the friendships formed and camaraderie among players and families.

I love to see the growth of players from children to responsible men (and women)

I love how the sport has develops traits and discipline that empower players to become successful and healthy adults

I love the spirit of competition.


While there certainly are challenges to be overcome when participating in a travel hockey program, the incredible rewards are worth far more than the effort required.  I hope you have a chance to experience this for yourself.

ABOUT THE EDGE>>>


The goals for our organization remain the same. We have enjoyed great success on the ice  but we also are aware that winning is not all consuming, and there are other values and considerations in determining the make-up of our club and the success of a season.


As an organization try to balance movement and accessibility for new skaters, (whether from our house league or outside organizations) with stability from the families who have been here for years. We expect our players to show a level of involvement and commitment to training, practicing and playing that matches the commitment they receive from the organization.


All of us - coaches, managers, administrators and parents must continue to keep in mind values and goals that go beyond hockey.  These values include (among others) loyalty, self improvement, teamwork, dedication and self control – all factors in player selection and development.


Game and practice ice has been secured at Port Washington, Iceworks, Ice Hutch and more limited ice at Aviator to accommodate our schedules.  Other requests have been made for ice at Northwell, but requests have not yet  been confirmed.  Games will be played in the LIAHL and the EJEPL where the talent level of our teams and scheduling for games is appropriate.


Cost for the season is expected to remain in line with this year's costs, provided no major changes in rink fees need to be passed on. We expect to continue having Eric Nates and his staff provide additional power skating and shooting training sessions for our younger teams.

Anticipate a season fee of approximately $3300.00 per player - Squirt through Midget. Jerseys and socks will cost $195.00.  These fees include the fees for 2 tournaments per team. Mite players will pay a lesser fee of $2100.00 based on their cross ice schedule. There are no added "Fundraising" or "Journal" requirements, although most teams collect  a small party fund to be used for special team events.

Good luck at tryouts!!

A note from an EDGE alum....what hockey really means.  Nick plays varsity hockey at Binghampton Univ. along with two other former Edge players...

Today was my last ever game of competitive hockey. What an incredible journey of hockey I have been on for the past 17 years of my life. I never knew of life without hockey and I know it will always be with me. Between my 11 seasons with the Long Island Edge and 4 with the Binghamton Bearcats, I have had the pleasure of playing with some of the most talented players and coaches. Beyond all of that, this man right here has been with me since day one. All the early mornings, long car rides, big tournaments, rivalry games, and giving me the opportunity to play at anytime of year has been the best part of it all. Thank you Dad, because of you I will always play hockey, coach hockey, and cherish all the memories we have built up together


EDGE  TRYOUTS COMING SOON !!!

The EDGE will try to be as transparent and straightforward during the tryout season as possible..

We will try to identify all of our needs on a team by team basis to allow players to make good choices in where they will spend their efforts, time, and money.  Our coaches have worked all year with current players and have a good idea of how many players may be needed on each team. Similarly teams that need or wish to upgrade goaltenders will be identified.

We ask for the same sense of honesty and integrity from those outside of the EDGE  who attend tryouts.


If you have any questions or comments regarding tryouts or the forthcoming season, please feel free to contact me at the rink 516-484-6800 or email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Good luck at tryouts!!
