WHAT I NEED FROM YOU!

In order to register our team and compile a roster, I desperately need coaches and parents of our athletes who will be attending Frankenfest, to email me no later than September 6th with the following information:

  1. Your athlete’s name
  2. Their Storm Jersey #
  3. Their T-Shirt Size
  4. AND how many adults (13 and over) and children (0-12) will attend the tournament dinner on Saturday night

Don’t yet have the details or the location of the Frankenfest Dinner Dance Party. I do not know what food will be served at the tournament dinner. There is no cost, and lately it’s been kid friendly.

When I receive the tournament schedule, about a week before the tournament, I will send it out to everyone. In the meantime, if I receive any updated information, I will send it out.

Remember there are a lot of fun things to do in the immediate area of the Richard Cody Arena:

Essex County Turtle Back Zoo, http://turtlebackzoo.com or the Tree Top Adventure Course, http://turtlebackzoo.com/discover/treetop-adventure-course/ both are next to the Richard Codey Arena.  Also, a short drive down Northfield Avenue is the Essex County Mini Golf Safari, http://turtlebackzoo.com/mini-golf/

Sound Tigers Clinic at Webster Bank Arena: 

The Sound Tigers are holding a very special on-ice hockey clinic for our Storm Athletes. Our athletes will  be doing drills and skills with some of the Sound Tiger players and coaches. What a great way to start our season. Hope everyone can attend!

See information below and go to Sound Tigers Clinic Sign-Up so that the Sound Tigers are prepared for us! Thank you - Rose

Location: Webster Bank Arena, 600 Main Street, Bridgeport, CT
Date: Wednesday, October 17, 2018
Time: Be ready and on the ice for 6 pm. Clinic will last about an hour.

How to get into the arena: Enter through Media Entrance (side door around the back side of the arena)

Parking: In the Media Entrance back lot. To get there, drive past the parking garage and enter at the next driveway. 

What to Bring?: Full hockey gear, and your own water bottle, juice, or sports drink. A personal snack if you like.

Special Note: Like every other Storm practice, game or event, the athlete's parent or guardian must be present the entire time. If your athlete is not able to independently dress themselves in their hockey gear and lace up their skates, it is the parent or guardian's responsibility to assist their athlete in getting completely dressed, and ready to be on the ice on time. Likewise, it is the parent or guardian's responsibility to assist their athlete in removing their gear and skates.
