For Immediate Release:

High School Hockey League of Suffolk County Inc. Larry Sprung, President

We are pleased to announce some exciting developments for High School Hockey in Suffolk County. The 2021-22 Season promises to be one of our best ever!!

We have elected a new Board of Directors. Larry Sprung, known to many in the local youth hockey community has been elected our President. Our Board members include:

  • Treasurer - Jeanne Campo

  • Vice President - Ken Tatarian

Rest of Board to be elected this summer

In 2021-22 we will be a member of the New York State Club Hockey League, whose participation includes the New York Islanders High School Hockey League (Nassau County) and about 40 other Varsity programs in Central and Western New York. Our Varsity teams will be part of the New York State Championships which will be scheduled in late February or early March. In the past this tournament has been played at Northwell Ice Center at Eisenhower Park.

Being a member of the New York State Club Hockey League will afford us the opportunity to play teams in Nassau County on a regular basis. We also expect to be a founding member of the Long Island Championships which will crown an Island-wide champion from the schools located in Nassau and Suffolk County and maybe other communities. We are also looking forward to having an Island-wide All-Star Game, which has many exciting possibilities to showcase the best players of Suffolk playing against the best players of Nassau County.

Our format for the regular season may undergo some minor changes which will be announced at a later date as we complete these details and partnerships. As always, we will have our games hosted by The Rinx in Hauppauge and will be adding games at other rinks as we expand our geographical reach.

Other exciting developments planned are partnering with Nassau County to host a College Combine in 2022 as a player showcase and informational opportunity for players looking to play hockey in college.

We have also adapted new tools and methodologies that will help bring players, family and friends closer to the action. We will be broadcasting a select number of games next season to bring you the best match-ups to wherever you are. We will be using a new website and tools that will have real-time statistics, scoring and tons of news and information to keep you engaged with the happenings of our league. Starting immediately, we are looking for scoreboard operators who can help us operate this platform during games.

Commencing immediately, we are looking to provide Suffolk County students with valuable experience in promoting the Clubs and our League in Social Media. Students thinking of exploring this field should reach out to us at suffolknyhshockey@gmail.com.
