  • Lawrence Hockey Association and Nassau Hockey League announce completion of merger
  • Results in a single, high-quality hockey organization serving Central New Jersey

 

Lawrenceville, NJ, April 4, 2017 -- The Lawrence Hockey Association, and the Nassau Hockey League are pleased to announce that they have completed the merger process initiated just over two months ago.

The merger of these two organizations will result in a single entity, known as the Lawrence Nassau Hockey Association, which will offer hockey for all ages and skill levels. Young players entering the program will start at the Learn-to-Play and Learn-to-Skate level. The current Learn-to-Play session, in association with the New Jersey Devils, resulted in more than 60 first time youth hockey players. As these players develop, they will then move into an already established, top In-House program - the former Nassau In-House league. Families looking for hockey on a more competitive level, with more ice time, will have the ability to have their children play Limited Travel.  Top level players will be offered an opportunity to play full Travel and participate as a member of the Lawrence Flames in the New Jersey Youth Hockey League

Mike Zammit, President of the Nassau Hockey League, said “Over the years, Nassau represented a way for kids just starting to learn to play hockey, and those who wanted a more recreational approach to the game, to have a place to play. Over the past number of years, as talent at the program evolved, Nassau started to play more teams at the travel level, thus making a merger with the Lawrence Flames a logical approach to continuing to offer a top-quality program.” 

Kathleen Preziosis, President of the Lawrence Hockey Association, stated “A quality feeder and development program is key to the development of our future talent, and the Learn-To-Play and In-House talent will feed into the Travel programs, ensuring a high-quality hockey program for families for generations to come.”

The merger brings together two of the premier ice arenas in Mercer County. Loucks Arena at the Lawrenceville School and Lisa McGraw Rink at Princeton Day School offer unparalleled convenience to families located in Lawrenceville/Princeton area.  Further proximity to I-295/I-95 allow easy access to players in Southern New Jersey and Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

Tryouts for the Travel Hockey program start the week of April 3rd, and continue for various age levels throughout the month of April. Players wishing to join the new combined organization are invited to visit our website at www.lawrenceflames.org  to learn more.
