Spring Plus/Minus League

The Triad Storm +/- league is a new format for the spring of 2021.The game like format provides all the on-ice conditioning and skill development needed leading up to tryouts with no pressure after a long season of demanding practices and coaches barking orders.

The format encourages players to play both ends of the rink, back-check, fore-check, play offense and play defense. Standings are kept by +/- only, not by goals and assists. Due to the unique structure, you will find the players going harder at the end of the session than the beginning in order to keep their +/- lower. Great ACTION!

Players are placed on teams each week and an attempt is made to make teams as even as possible.  Each hour long game will have 2 teams with 3 full lines (30 total skaters) and 3 goalies.  Line changes will be determined by coaches whistle (60-75 seconds), with a live puck on the change.  The team and goalie with the best +/- for the session are given a weekly prize, something small like a roll of tape or $5 gift card, etc.

The +/- league will begin April 28th and continue until June 2nd, the 1st group (birth years; 2010, 2009 and 2008) from 6:30-7:30 and 2nd group (birth years; 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004 and 2003) from 7:40-8:40.  Adjustments to team placement based off of birth year could be altered due to number of signups and skill level.

****This skate is open to ALL hockey players and registration is based off a 1st come 1st serve basis. Spots will fill quickly, do not delay your registration.
