Trying to build a new team at Valencia Ice Station...anyone interested?
Folks, I'm currently on a division 4 team at Ice Station Valencia and I have a few friends that want to join up but we no longer have any roster space. I'm trying to gauge interest from some other puckheads to see if I can get enough people to form a team for the next season which starts in march (I believe). I'd like to get enough people to have at least 2 full lines and d-pairs before commiting to submit the roster to the league. So if you're interested let me know, and ask a friend or two also. I'll start building a list and see where we're at around the middle of february to get it going.
I'm unsure as of what day/time we'll be playing, last season we played sundays and this season we're playing monday nights...I'd imagine it to stay either one of those nights. It is division 4 so there a lot of people who are either new to hockey or (like myself) just getting back into it but there are always a few people on each team that definatley play at a higher level...so if you're a D1/D2 player (meaning you have life long experience in the sport, college/junior experience etc) it might not be for you (i.e. boring).
The other caveat is that ISV is known for being a fairly pricey league, $585 if you pay in full up front, or $610 if you split it into payments (I'm sure some of you are saying hell no at this point). If you haven't played there yet, its a very nice facility. The thing is we can pay as a team ($6000+/-), which is worthwile if we get enough people (15 or so) and could drop the cost down a bit.
Hit me up, lets do this. And I'd be more than down to make our team name the Kings and rep the colors but we'll obviously have that discussion when the time/need arises. Hope to hear from you and feel free to hit me up with any questions and I'll try to answer them to the best of my ability.
