Mike Falanga, a former standout at SCYH has given a commitment to play for Sacred Heart University.
Mike was able to grow and mature under the direction of Erik Roos and Rick Beckwith, while at SCYH and East Haven High School. He has earned a number of accolades including First Team All-State honors in 2014. Mike was also a key member of the 2012-2013 midget U16 team that captured the national title in Troy, Michigan.
Mike will continue to develop and grow as a player in the junior ranks for the Brooks Bandits in the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL). The entire Southern community would like to congratulate Mike and wish him luck!
The Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League was created to prepare players to become the EHL and College recruits of the future. Many of the owners of the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), Metropolitan Junior Hockey League (MET), and Atlantic Youth Hockey League (AYHL) are affiliated with the EJEPL and it's (45) partner organizations. Players will be exposed to the EHL's NCAA style practices--including systems, plays, skill development, off-ice training techniques, and most importantly--academic guidance.
The EJEPL is designed to help create a seamless transition, to allow players at the 12U to the 18U levels to develop their skills with the ability to stay in their organizations all the way to College. Players can be promoted from the 15-16-18 U teams to their EHL Junior parent teams or similar junior development Leagues. The newly formed affiliation between SCYH, the New York Apple Core and Brewster Bulldogs, provides the SCYH skaters an additional opportunity to skate at the higher (juniors) levels beyond Midgets.
Emphasis will be placed on practice and skill development as well as off-ice strength and conditioning while always focusing in on academic excellence in the classroom. Parents will be guided on the proper college process through seminars, meetings and constant contact to help players prepare hockey resumes and video. Parents will not have to spend thousands of extra $$ for this service. The EJEPL provides its skaters the maximum opportunity for exposure, while skating at a very competitive level. It is a very exciting time to be part of the league as it is quickly expanding to all areas of the country. Unlike many of the other elite travel hockey programs in the country, the focus of the EJEPL is to minimize travel and prevent missed school days. The league is split into conferences based on team geography. SCYH teams will be in a conference where travel would not be much different than it would be for a normal season. There are several local EJEPL tournaments held throughout the year, to allow league play with teams from across the country. This will provide SCYH players the opportunity to skate against teams, they would not play in the regular season. The EJEPL league schedule is designed to supplement the team’s traditional season schedule, not replace it. SCYH is proud a partner of the EJEPL and is excited about the opportunities it will provide for our skaters.
