Re: 95 Giants

Looks good!!

Re: 95 Giants

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!

What are Giants doing about ice now that high school is starting up at Raynham?

What are Giants doing about ice now that high school is starting up at Raynham?


That's the million dollar question. As well as when will this issue be solved?

Re: 95 Giants

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..

Re: 95 Giants

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.



Re: 95 Giants

So how do we fix the problem. No kid should be without ice?

Re: 95 Giants

Took a ride by today and saw the zambonis on site. Looks like they have ice.

Absolutely, there were a lot of Caps parents ready to jump ship this year, but were smart enough to see that the rink would not be done for the start of the season and were nervous about that. You bet there will lots of Caps kids going there next year !

The place is sweet! There is a Krispy Kreme onsite too!

Re: 95 Giants

the main rink has 750 and rink 2 has only 250.

Not too bright..

Re: 95 Giants

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.

Very Exciting!!!!

The Lovell family?? Great guys but unless I'm missing something they had nothing to do with making this dream a reality. Pretty sure they are just renting ice and the developers did the rest...

Re: 95 Giants

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 !

They were heavily involved and their involvement was key, from who is running the facility to the GC to the investors.. most got involved because of the faith they have in the Lovells.

Their involvement was/is key to this getting off like it did.

Thank you!!!! Exactly the Lovell Family was actively involved in every aspect of this facility. Don't get me wrong the investment group is a big deal but if Lovells ever oulled out this thing would be in trouble.

Re: 95 Giants

Played our first game over at the new rink this past weekend and that place is fabulous. The ice is outstanding. Kids loved it!

Nope just a fact, Saints aren't relevant. They were when they played Hockey Northeast. Landscape has changed and the few teams they have that qualify for E9 get smoked. 05 team loses 1/2 kids every year to EHF, and that teams is plain bad. RI parents realize better off driving to 146 or foxboro to play teams that are closer and more competetive.

For a RI kid who's good enough, EHF is the smart option, and more teams to choose from based on where you live in the state (SSK,Caps, Jr. Terriers etc.). Saints are a Tier 1 program that places a few teams in the weaker E9.They will lose those e9 spots to the 95's as they continue to grow and improve.

funny how you mentioned the 05 Saints and kids leaving to what? The stacked team that is the 05 Caps. 2 professional hockey coaches and can barely get kids to play hockey together. Only kids who live in the north would bother driving to foxboro for hockey and i think that affect the Caps way more than the Saints. Sad to see the Caps dying off and need to take your frustration out somewhere. we get it.

Re: 95 Giants

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...

Yea old news... GC fired and kicked off sight for not doing work and overcharging for what they did. This was talked about months ago.

Now they are suing for the money they would have gotten had they actually done the job and done it right.

Re: 95 Giants

Re: 95 Giants

Giants will be scouting the caps kids this weekend at JWK TO DETERMINE WHICH PLAYERS THEY WANT FOR Giants teams. Please play your best.

Re: 95 Giants

Give it a rest blue, green and now orange Kool-Aid drinkers. Most overrated program you can imagine. There are a lot of crappy ones out there but a total scam for the money. Go watch a knights or a giant practice. Either a crony daddy friend of the Lovell's or JL sitting off to the side blowing a whistle running open line drills for an hour. Every year the knights end up with rejects from other programs. No one on one instruction. Look at the quality of the players and the wins and losses. Limited developing going on there. They produced strong 02'2 at BA because of his son. Every other birthyear in everyone of his programs is weak Massive turn over every year. Week league. Even in his older levels those kids still have to go to the Kings or Islanders or junior Bruins to play juniors to develop to play in college. Sorry folks but that is the truth.

Re: 95 Giants

2 teams on life support to the north and the south, 05 Caps and 05 Kings. Sure to be a lot of kids coming over at the 05 level due to current implosion status.

Seriously??? This program has nothing. They are waiting for the RI Saints to fold so the can collect their remnants. Stay away or good luck.


most of the saints kids would go back to town. Most live in Central to southern RI and wont travel to north Smithfield for the Caps never mind go to attleboro. you dont know the RI mentality when it comes to driving. Anything over 20 minutes is a day trip.

Re: 95 Giants

Agreed but it looks like the saints are revived and players are migrating back.
Saints now have convenient locations and good numbers.

Re: 95 Giants

When it is up and running, what's going to be more convenient that right off of I-95 with state of the art facilities and with some of the best skills around?

Re: 95 Giants

Re: 95 Giants

With the facilities it might be their flagship program...wouldn't doubt it for a second.

Re: 95 Giants

Supposedly all skills for 95's and LK's will be moved there by 2017.

Re: 95 Giants

It's only early April but don't be surprised if the rinks are ready to go in September. The pool, fields, and hotel are not a concern.
