This Labor Day weekend, in partnership with the MidFairfield Connecticut Stars and Ironbound Elite, the NGHL hosted the 2019 Labor Day Challenge. Fifty-two teams across 5 divisions – 12U – 19U – played across three days. Most games were played at the Northford Pavilion Rink but some teams had the special opportunity to play on Wesleyan’s beautiful Spurrier-Snyder Rink. 

It was gratifying to see such passionate and talented players.  Feedback from the college scouts that were there was very positive. We were fortunate to have a section of coaches from D1, D3 and NESCAC schools: 

Alvernia • New England College • Nazareth • Trinity Kings • Quinnipiac • UMass Boston •  Wesleyan • Manhattanville • Yale • Amherst • Maryville Buffalo • St. Lawrence • UConn • Bowdoin • WNE • SUNY Oswego • Post • Merrimack • Colby • Becker • Chatham • Sacred Heart • Aurora • CT College • Nichols • Elmira • Brown • Wilkes

We’d like to congratulate all the division winners:

We truly appreciate all the teams that came out to skate and those who posted pictures and #GameDay creative on social media (@nghl_hockey), raising the level of awareness of our new league.
