Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino announced that registration will be opening soon for the Town’s Spring Youth Dek Hockey League both online and in person. The league is open to boys and girls ages 6-12, and will begin on Monday, September 12th. Dek hockey is a variation of traditional ice hockey, where the games are played without skates on the ‘dek’ of an ice rink after the ice has melted away for the season. The season will feature 10 games, weekly practices, and an end-of-season playoff competition. Openings are also available for Dek Hockey coaches for the fall 2022 season.
“Boys and girls who are enrolled in the Town’s Youth Dek Hockey League will have a great opportunity to not only improve their hockey skills, but to also learn important life lessons such as good sportsmanship and teamwork from our talented coaching staff,” Supervisor Saladino said. “This is a great activity for youngsters, whether they have experience in hockey or are just learning and are interested in playing hockey for the first time.”
Online registration will take place from August 29th to August 31st beginning at 9:00am at oysterbaytown.com/parks. To register, please login to or create an account, and be prepared to upload a copy of the child’s birth certificate (for first-time registrants).
In person registration will take place on September 6th from 5:30pm to 8:00pm (Syosset-Woodbury Park Skate House) and September 7th from 5:30pm to 8:00pm (Allen Park Community Room.) The program will cost $95 for residents, and $110 for non-residents. Each child will need to provide their own equipment, a list of which will be supplied upon registration.
Families must provide a copy of their child’s birth certificate at in-person registration, and checks, money order and credit cards will be accepted. If a session is canceled due to inclement weather, make-up day(s) will be attempted. For more information, please call (516) 433-7465 ext. 8234.
