Nassau County Hockey Recreational League Interest/Wait List

Our NCHL "House" League for the 2024-2025 season will run from September through the first weekend of March.  We will open registration for the NCHL 24-25 Season toward the end of Summer in August.  If you are interested in the 24-25 NCHL Season beginning in September, please complete this form, and we will reach out when registration officially begins.

The cost for the 24-25 NCHL Season is much less than travel hockey, and we are generally on the ice three to four times per week.  The last few seasons, we had more than 50 ice slots per team, including open skates and skill sessions for all players.

For more information on the NCHL 24-25 Season, please reach out to Peter Zsamboky via email at

10UA Lions Triumph in Hershey

Lions Take Over Lake Placid

The 12UAA and 14UA Lions are wrapping up their season in style, traveling up north to the Winter Olympic Village in Lake Placid, New York, playing in the CAN/AM Challenge Cup Tournament. Players participated in the opening ceremonies on-site where the 1980 Lake Placid Olympic Winter Games were held, on the same ice surface where Team USA captured the Gold Medal during its "Miracle on Ice" run. Best of luck to all the Lions players in creating memories that will last a lifetime.

What's in the Box!

The mysterious parcels that arrived a few weeks ago at Cantiague Park have been unveiled. The program's new four-sided scoreboard will hang at center ice for all to enjoy for years to come.

Two Honored With Inaugural 'Pride of the Lions' Award

On February 25th, the Nassau County Lions introduced the first ever “Pride of the Lions” Award, an honor given to players who have spent their entire youth hockey career (8u-18u) as a member of the Nassau County Lions.

The inaugural award was presented to 18u co-captains Miles Hochman and John Dunn, both of whom began their respective travel hockey careers back in 2011 as 8U players.

In addition to this, Miles and John were presented with a citation recognizing their achievement from Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman.

Pictured here are the Hochman family, the Dunn family, Nassau County Director of Hockey Mark LaMarr, Nassau Lions President Scott Gerstner, Administrator Eric C. Peck, bookended by the boys' first coach Rob Hoppe and last coach Ian Clugston.

Nassau County Hockey

Nassau County Hockey's Mission and Vision
The Nassau County Hockey Program operates under the auspices of the Nassau County Department of Parks, Recreation, and Museums and exists to serve the interests of the residents of Nassau County.  Over the last quarter century, we have built a strong tradition of quality hockey programming.  Our staff has brought us to the respected position we now hold in the hockey community.  We are proud of that heritage and are committed to achieving even greater success.

Our Mission Is To Become The Best Hockey Program In The Nation
By the best, we mean a rapidly growing organization that provides innovative programming of the highest caliber for the youth of Nassau County.  Our goals go far beyond merely developing the athletic ability of our participants.  We want to help develop the character and interpersonal skills of each of our boys and girls in such a way that participation in one of the Nassau County Hockey Programs will benefit them long past the time when they hang up their skates.  Our aim is to develop first-class citizens for our county, as well as first-class athletes for our hockey teams.

People Are Our Most Important Asset
It is important that we:

  • Attract, motivate, and retain the most talented people in our hockey community for both our professional and volunteer staff.
  • Provide the opportunity for all employees and volunteers to develop their potential and make the best use of their abilities.
  • Promote mutual trust and respect for each other.
  • Practice open and timely two-way communications with the expectation and confidence that well-informed people will do the right thing.

Excellence Must Become A Way Of Life
This demands that we:

  • Define excellence as performing up to the public’s expectations and then doing more.
  • Maintain a dynamic growth-oriented environment that promotes teamwork and encourages individual initiative.
  • Provide leadership that will motivate both employees and volunteers to practice excellence in every dimension of their assigned responsibilities.
  • Pursue functional excellence as an integral part of our total program performance.
  • Take pride in all the programs and services that we provide to the citizens of Nassau County.

We believe that if we live and work by these values, we will establish Nassau County as the premier hockey program in the United States of America.
