2020-21 'Rocks Womens Adult Team

As of now playing hockey is an approved activity given Vermont's Department of Health COVID 19 guidelines.

For the first time, ever the Shamrocks are looking to offer a formal USA Hockey Registered Adult Women's Senior Team. This team will be able to play in sanctioned games against other women's' teams and could possibly enter tournaments or other events. The team will abide by ALL USA Hockey and VT COVID-19 regulations.

Because of these same COVID related travel restrictions, there could be a number of high school and college-aged girls/women looking to play competitive hockey who are unable to leave Vermont to do so.  

While players DO NOT have to be former Shamrocks, this team will seek to leverage the Shamrock Alumnae network and provide some fun events for VT Women who (still) love to play hockey. The team will also play a large role in helping to support other girls and women as they try and make the best of what will be a unique fall and winter.

The primary goal of the organization of the team (or teams if there is significant interest) is to help lend a structure (website, collecting money to pay for ice tie, refs, & help setting up games, etc) for adult women to play organized hockey in a fun environment. This team will be supported by the Shamrocks organization, but ultimately it will be "player run."  

It is expected that our Shamrock 19U, 16U teams and even some VT college teams will be interested in playing in-state games/scrimmages this fall/winter. The (to be determined) fee for this team will include a reversible Shamrock jersey, socks, USAH fees/insurance, and ice time, refs, or tournament/jamboree fees.  

This is a Womens Senior team as described in the USA Hockey Guide. This is for experienced players and while there is no specific age limit for this team players should be over 19 or enrolled in college.

2020-21 Split-Season 16u & 19u Teams

 

Three-time USA Hockey National Champion Vermont Shamrocks are committed to having National Bound Tier II 16 & 19U split season teams BUT will not skirt a single element of the Agency of Education and/or state department of Health COVID-19 guidance. 
 
Tryouts for 16U and 19U splits will take place at Cairns Arena. Are we are dealing with the arena's COVID regulations our first 2 tryout skates are FULL.

We will contact you to let you know when your assigned tryout will be. 
 
All players must pre-register for tryouts. Any out of state players must be cleared by the Arena prior to travel to VT. There are limited roster spots for non-Vermont players.
 
The 'Rocks will book enough ice in VT to hold a series of on-ice events involving our teams (playing each other and/or local youth teams) and/or teams from areas where travel to VT is permissible without quarantine. 
 
The 'Rocks are members of the Eastern Select Girls Hockey League (ESGHL). Many ESGHL teams are based in Massachusetts. We do not know if we will be able to travel there this fall.
 
The Shamrocks will not schedule games anywhere which will require our players or families to quarantine when they return home. There are new teams in the ESGHL based in Maine and NH so travel there may be more likely. The Shamrocks were 2019-20 16U ESGHL Champions and 19U Runner-up. 
 
Being upfront and transparent has always been important to our non-profit all volunteer association. While we all hope for a relatively normal season we can promise nothing more than high-level hockey within Vermont if remains a safe and approved activity. 
 
If the VPA and/or VT High School Hockey League cancels or delays winter sports or hockey specifically and hockey remains a VT Health Department approved and safe activity the Shamrocks would for the first time continue to operate 16/19 into the winter so our HS athletes can skate as much as 3-4 times per week. If HS hockey starts as planned the Shamrock fall season will end with the ESGHL Playoffs on the weekend before Thanksgiving.
 
After the winter season, the Shamrocks plan to regroup in March for the New England and USA Hockey National Championships if qualified.
 
Our fees are low as they reflect only the cost of our ice time, referees, jerseys, shells*, bags*, socks, league fees, insurance, and web site fees divided by the number of players. Everyone pays including coaches kids, goalies, etc. If a family needs financial assistance money may be available. *new players only
