Mite Community Service
On December 5th 2016, the PAL Mite Sound Tigers Bronze and Silver teams participated in a community service project for an organization called Gavin's Got Heart (GGH). GGH is a non-profit organization that provides financial and emotional support for families with children affected by congenital heart defects. GGH helps to subsidize medical bills, travel expenses associated with hospitalizations and medical care, as well as offset the loss of wages for caregiver/parent(s). GGH also provides free heart screenings, and CPR/AED training for the community through a partnership with Northwell Health and provides outreach for the heart families. The boys participated by collecting infant socks, baby books, and $5 gift cards to Starbucks. These items are then put into "Smile Sacks" by the organization and given to the families in the hospital.

The United States Premier Hockey League (USPHL) is excited to announce its intention to offer an 11-team, tuition-free division of Junior hockey in 2017-18.
“For many years East Coast hockey players have desired a tuition-free option of Junior hockey,” said USPHL Commissioner Jeff Nygaard. “We have always been told it will never happen. The USPHL owners and operators are now making that happen through their continued commitment to both Junior hockey and NCAA Division I development opportunities.”
Players who desire to stay closer to home in the East will now have not only a tuition-free option but be able to compete in what the USPHL feels will become a pipeline for training, development and NCAA Division I advancement. With 56 percent of NCAA Division I schools in the Northeast -- which matches up with the USPHL’s tuition-free footprint -- the scouting and development opportunities will increase significantly. Last year the USPHL had over 300 NCAA commitments and the league plans on that number steadily growing as the tuition-free league solidifies itself in the marketplace.
The USPHL has submitted a formal application to USA Hockey for approval to be certified as a Tier 2 League. The matter is pending with USA Hockey.
Teams that have been accepted into the new tuition-free division are:
Boston Bandits Junior Bruins Connecticut Jr. Rangers
Islanders Hockey Club Jersey Hitmen New Jersey Rockets
Northern Cyclones P.A.L. Jr. Islanders Rochester Monarchs
