The USC Varsity is gearing up for our trip to USA Hockey Nationals.
Schedule: USA Hockey High School Nationals will be played in Mansfield, TX. Games will be played starting Thursday, March 26 at 10:00am leading up to a potential championship game on March 30 at 10:00am.
Deposit: The USC Hockey Association is collecting a $150 deposit for each player committed to attending. You have received a separate PowerPay invoice from USC Hockey for each player on the varsity roster. Please pay that invoice by January 12th to secure your player's spot on the roster for this tournament. The coaches are planning to take a full 20 player roster to this event so please commit ASAP so call up players can be contacted in a timely manner. The final total cost per player is pending and will be communicated once all costs are determined.
Air travel: The Association is recommending regular commercial air travel. Players and parents should book a flight ASAP to secure the best fares. You may elect to travel at your discretion. Direct flights can be found on both Southwest and American Airlines.
**Dallas Love Field (DAL - Southwest Airlines) is about 45 minutes from Mansfield while the Dallas Ft Worth (DFW - American Airlines) airport is about 30 minutes away.
** Note that the potential Championship game will be Monday at 10:00AM so plan your air travel accordingly.
Local Transportation / Cars: Families are recommended to coordinate local rental cars or other transportation while at the tournament. This provides more flexibility than a single chartered motorcoach and is likely a lower cost option per player. Families may coordinate on their own to share cars etc.
Hotels: USA Hockey coordinates all hotel arrangements for this event. As soon as details are available on this we will coordinate with families to book rooms.
School Absence: The Association will be contacting the high school to work to secure an approved absence for this team event.

Many thanks go out to all of the families that donated lunch prep items to our third annual bagged lunch project yesterday. As you can see from the pictures our awesome players came early and stayed late to pack lunches for the Light of Life Mission on the Northside. Together the JV and Varsity players made 600 ham, turkey and cheese sandwiches and packed them along with other lunch essentials into 300 brown bags. Thanks to all of the coaches that stopped in to lend their support and an extra big thank you to Coach CJ for staying with the varsity players and lending a hand! Thank you to Ann Shiry, Chris Fairful and Rona Daley for volunteering your time and talents to the event and an EXTRA BIG SHOUT OUT to Mike Daley for rescuing us with more boxes and top notch delivery service to the shelter. This project is a group effort and shows that you can "have fun and get things done when you cooperate!" (thanks Sesame Street). Upcoming freshman...... we look forward to seeing you next year at this amazing event!
