Hello hockey families, It is time to start gearing up for the 2015-16 Newark Generals hockey season!
We wanted to communicate some scheduling information. This information will be added to our calendar in a matter of a few days.
Here are a few reminders:
1. We understand that it can be confusing with our site (newarkhockey.com) AND The Lou & Gib Reece Ice Arena (newarkicearena.com) both having an ice schedule calendar. Our hockey program is scheduled exclusively on our website. Most of the time you will see matching data on the arena website, but please know that these are manually updated and it is possible that the calendars may not always match. We encourage our membership to go to newarkhockey.com for NIHA related events such as games, practices and NIHA clinics. If there is any confusion we urge you to communicate directly with your coach.
2. Please note that events like drop ins and stick & pucks are not NIHA programs. These programs will ONLY be listed at newarkicearena.com.
All Peewee and Squirt age groups... LOOK CLOSELY

Immediately following the ice we will have Season Kickoff Party! Of course, this is all dependent on how many players show up, so bring yourselves and bring your friends!Right now we are planning to have a bonfire with smores.
On Sunday Oct. 11th at the OhioHealth Ice Haus we will have the second day of this event from 1:40 pm to 3:10 pm with the same format, but we will get an extra 40 minutes!
All NIHA girls are encouraged to attend (wear your jerseys!), and bring your friends!
UPDATED AND MUCH IMPROVED FORMAT! Please see details below.
We wanted to update all those interested in possibly joining our new Midget program for this coming season. NIHA plans to operate a Midget team that will practice each week, and possibly play a few other teams we have found through our communications with other area organizations this season. Here are the details so far:
This program is intended for players that are birthyear 2000 though 1997. This is a less intensive program intended to keep newer and developing players involved with ice hockey, whether they wish to prepare for a transition to JV/Varsity or until they are eligible for our adult leagues. Anyone with the appropriate age (boys and girls) may join our Midget group from any geographic area.
Season Length: 24 weeks

Three NIHA adult teams traveled to Northern Michigan this past weekend to participate in U.P. Pond Hokcey Championship. The tournament was held on Lake Huron in Moran Bay in St. Ignace, Michigan. Despite temperatures in the teens for most of the weekend, over 170 teams participated on 30 outdoor rinks.
Although none of our teams brought home any trophies, they all brought home great memories. Everyone is already looking forward to next year, when we hope more teams from Newark will participate!
The Generals JV team as they took 1st place at the Fire on Ice Tournament in Cincinnati last weekend. They finished the weekend without a loss, and only let in one goal the whole weekend! Congratulations to the entire team!
The Newark Generals are the 2012 Ohio High School Club Hockey State Champions!!!
The top 12 teams in the state met this past weekend for state championship tournament play. The Generals first had to qualify for the Sunday championship rounds by being one of the top four point winners from round robin play. The Generals opened with a close 3-2 win over Medina, followed by an impressive 7-0 victory over Mason, and then clinched a number two semifinal seed by defeating Northern Kentucky by a 5-3 score. The Sunday morning semifinal matchup was a rematch with league rival Westerville with the Generals posting a convincing 5-2 victory. The finals held Sunday afternoon matched the Generals against the Cleveland league champion, Jackson Polar Bears. The Generals won a fast and furious game by a 3-2 score.
This is the Generals’ second state championship and first since the 2009 championship season. Please congratulate Thomas Nichols, Christian Thomas, Zach Dennis, Ryan McCabe, Alex O'Neill, Gabe Parini, Tate Stewart, Drew Stewart, Ben Dickson, Austin Pitcock, Ben Dennis, Mitch Anderson, Christian Hayden, Matt Congos, Austin Smart, Gus Goumas, Lucas Chacey, and Ben Baldwin for this outstanding accomplishment.
