Any idea who the 04 coach will be? Any chance that it's OV?
Then they should be really good.
What if this program resembles AI or BA more than LK? And, really there is nothing wrong with LK. There are some good coaches slated for next season at 95. We'll see where it goes.
RB,AB,SW and BJ
TL and JL have been developing quality players for years into the college and junior ranks. What makes you think things will change now? They won't.
I guess the old man coming out of retirement to coach the 08s. The guy is a coaching legend and they will be a force to be reckoned with possibly the new world beaters to surpass the flames.
"The original Tweet Tweet"
Just curious, any idea what the jersey will look like? Islanders colors?
They will be crap yellow and green. They will say LK across the front as this program not launching next year and all players will be forced as second-team Knights
Edmonton Oilers, baby!
How does 07s and 08s look
The 07's look like they will compete very well. Come to tryouts on Saturday at 11:20 and see for yourself.
They are working really hard to put some competitive teams together. There will be growing pains like any successful program at the beginning. But, when this organization is established, why won't they be as good as any other E9 or BHL American team? and, they'll have a skating facility that will be new and very accommodating. Go Giants!
Drove by new rink today and spoke to one of the construction foremen. He said first sheet will be ready mid-Feb 2017.
Even if what you say is true, aren't some things worth waiting for?
The 95 Giants will be fine....relax. All organizations have some teams that do some post tryout recruiting, if you will.
My kid signed up!!
Several very competitive defectors from other notable conferences has signed up. Go Giants!
I signed with these guys they better have a team for my kid!
Registrations will be opening soon I heard.
Full season filled with town b players, LK rejects and kids cut from other programs. Check please!
You sound pretty bitter sorry your kid didn't make the team.
I sound like the guy who never responded to Joe asking my son to come play.
Sounds like you did him a solid by not wasting his time with you or your kid.
It will be interesting to see how these teams do. At the 03 level new teams didn't have a lot of success, in the EHF anyway.
Frankie, have you seen the new 95 Giants logo? Freaking awesome and original! Check out the web site www.95giants.com
It's awesome that this organization is getting noticed. The owners seem to have organized things very well from the beginning and are putting in the right coaches and skill instructors. We'll see how the teams fare, but, don't be surprised if this program becomes a choice place to play in the near future. Kudos to the parents and players that took the leap!
Looks like someone pulled it from Stan Lee's garbage can.
What are Giants doing about ice now that high school is starting up at Raynham?
Not going be solved anytime soon. Games cancelled. And no ice in Attleboro anytime soon. Even now ice in Raynham/Hingham is scarce for Giants teams to squeeze into possible odd slots. Too many teams, not enough ice for weekend games.
Expect this thru at least November..
Lenghthy discussion about this on the Town Board under the SSC thread.
Again, this is a disaster if the rinks are not open by thanksgiving once High School Starts and rinks start losing Ice to College and High School programs
Plus the issue with the multiple high school teams that contracted ice for this season in Attleboro will have to take additional ice elsewhere.
So how do we fix the problem. No kid should be without ice?
Took a ride by today and saw the zambonis on site. Looks like they have ice.
Have had Zamboni's for a while..
Any news on when the ice will be ready?
1 week for ice on main rink
week after Thanksgiving
Ice is almost frozen, kids will be skating next week. come on by and check us out!
Are the locker rooms ready?
I'm painting them tonight
With the new facility opening Friday, this program is going to take off.
Is it true the foxboro pro league will be run out of NESV in 2017?
Took a swing by. This place is amazing. They did it right.
I saw a General's' post on Twitter with photos of the rink and the bleacher section doesn't look all that huge. How many sheets with seating do they have? Was I looking at the little rink?
the main rink has 750 and rink 2 has only 250.
Not too bright..
Once things settle my kid wants to leave foxboro and sign up for this program. Best skills, best coaches, best facility, the list goes on and on. All I can say is wow! This program has it all.
I gotta say, I don't blame him. All his buddies are talking about it and everything the program is doing is top notch, they are not cutting corners anywhere.
Hats off to the Lovell family for making this dream a reality as fast as they did. Now more kids will have the opportunity to skate and play for a premiere program in thbest facily in the northeast.
Glad they got it done for December, this is a great move with High School starting !
Plus, we will start to see all of the "EHF" bags back at the Iceplex now that walk on skills will start again !
Joe and Tim bought ice. And lots of it. Upfront.
However, They do not run the facility.. not even close
Checked out the village yesterday. What an amazing facility!
Is there just one rink open at this time or more than one?
The two full size sheets are up.
Anyone know if we can get skates sharpened on site?
Played our first game over at the new rink this past weekend and that place is fabulous. The ice is outstanding. Kids loved it!
Are there walk on skills at that place? If is so what are the days and times?
Check out the Lovell Hockey website. Schedule is posted.
Not Joe, but you're welcome.
there are at least 3 teams that will be making the switch over to 95 Giants next year. How many do you know of?
Sweet facility! This program is going to be top notch!
They are coming because of a new building, 2 miles away are the saints a legit E9 team. Im confused why these kids are coming.
Yeah that 05 Saints team has lost there best players to SSK and Caps over the past 3 seasons and the kids were from all over RI. Listen Saints dad you brought up the Saints in the post. I just chose that team as an example so stop being defensive. Just stating facts. The 05 Caps team is good, but needs to score more and way too many ties. They would destroy the 05 Saints. 5-15 in E9 is not good friend.
Saints aren't in the discussion of people going there. They're a stepping stone for players trying to make EHF.
Driving from South County/Kent County to Burriville for games isn't a big difference from Foxboro, and 146 is a heck of a lot closer than Burriville or St. George's.
So don't worry Saints Dad, no one will leave, or come to you. You're the frustrated one friend. We get it...
