Nan Rheault Tournament Weekend – January 25, 2019
This a big weekend for Girls Hockey-both JV and Varsity games on Saturday night and Sunday morning breakfast for all teams invited to the tournament including MV JV and Varsity teams. We have a lot going on this weekend and need everyone’s help to make this a great weekend for the girls!!
The Island of Martha’s Vineyard has a rich tradition of hockey. The program has existed since 1982 and has continued to stay true to its roots – Character, responsibility, and dedication are paramount traits of the program. We are members of the Division III Cape & Islands League, and also play several out of league games. The varsity team practices every day at the MV Arena in Oak Bluffs, MA with off-ice training and film twice a week. Off the ice, the team participates in various community service events through-out the year.
The JV hockey program skates on average 2X per week. The ultimate goal of the program is to develop the basic skills of hockey, and along the way, have lots of fun. There are only a handful of schools in Massachusetts that offer JV girls ice hockey, and because of that, the game schedule is very limited. Most of the development will be done in the practices on-island. Varsity and JV ice hockey have different levels of commitment, and like all high school hockey programs across the state of Massachusetts, the practice schedule and game schedules are very different
