New England No Check Hockey Program

Know any older kids (13-18) who left hockey for a while but want to come back? Any kids who want to play some hockey with room for other winter sports too? Any kids who've had too many concussions to play checking hockey? Tell them to check out the new No-Check Division of Valley League! www.valleyhockeyleague.com

VHL BANTAM & MIDGET No Check Divisions! New for 2016-17

The Valley Hockey League will be offering a No-Check Division at the Bantam and Midget level for the 2016-17 season. This new offering will provide an opportunity for hockey players age 13-14yrs old and 15-18 yrs old to continue playing the game they love in a fun, competitive and organized environment without the checking component of the game. Interested players should check with your local Town Youth Hockey Organization to determine if your program will be offering a no-check team for the 2016-17 season.

If a No-Check team is not offered by your local program the VHL will assist in placing interested individuals on an appropriate regional team. Interested individual players can contact the VHL office at nocheck@valley-associates.com

This should end up replacing high school in a few years, college a few years after that and then the NFL.

Is it really worth scrambling your brain just to play football? Not my kid!!

The chances of ever playing Pro football are so miniscule especially if you are a new englander. Not that it matters because the damage will be done long before then anyway.

Not looking to sissify sports but to allow your kid to play this barbaric sport is a poor parenting choice.

They say the same thing about hockey. More concussions in soccer anyway.

Ha ha. Ok. Go let your kid scramble his brains so he can be third string at Bridgewater State. Give it up already and join the Rugby Club

Re: New England No Check Hockey Program

The fact of the matter is that the chances of catastrophic head injury from football are very slim, and the sport teaches valuable life lessons about teamwork, showing up to play/work every day despite not feeling your best, and fighting through adversity that every kid could use in their professional career. Don't be scared away because of the sad stories you hear about NFL players. Or at least try and come to grips with the real magnitude of the risk before you write the sport off.
