ELEMENTARY WHITE WINS CHAMPIONSHIP

Congratulations to the players and coaches on the Elementary White Bulldogs.  The Bulldogs beat Springfield March 20, 2017 to win the Upper Division of the DSHL. 


From The Main Line Times:

The Lower Merion Elementary Bulldogs – White Team won the Delco School Hockey League Elementary Upper Division championship Monday night with a 10-4 win against Springfield Elementary.

The scoring in the championship game opened up early for the Bulldogs with Parker Hoppy finding the back of the net at 2:53 into the first period. The Bulldogs maintained a comfortable lead throughout the game with goals from Owen Davis, Braden Fisher (two), Sam Flood, Toby Myers and Lucas Yenal.

Ben Rabinowitz led the team in scoring with a hat trick in their final game – scoring his last goal with one second left on the game clock. Goaltender Christian Mackey made 18 saves to secure the victory.

Lower Merion, led by team captains Esref Erkmen, Parker Hoppy, and Marco Mazzarelli, finished its regular season in first place with a 13-2-1 record. The team’s head coach, Brian Hoppy, was assisted by coaches Kadir Erkmen, Dan Flood, and Justin Mackey.

The Bulldogs tallied 121 goals during the season, while goalies Christian Mackey, Will Zeger, and Andrew Bachman allowed only 55 goals during the regular season. The team had several first-year Bulldogs, and one player – Toby Myers – has been a Bulldog for the last five years since he was in Kindergarten.

The Lower Merion Ice Hockey Club was established in 1970 with the entry of the Lower Merion High School team into the Inter-County Scholastic Hockey League (ICSHL). The team’s first uniforms were donated by NHL Hall of Famer Ed Snider, the late founder of the Philadelphia Flyers. Two of Snider’s sons, Craig and Jay Snider, played on that first team.

The Lower Merion Ice Hockey Club has also grown from one varsity high school team to an eight-team club including two High School varsity teams (boys), a girls’ high school team, a middle school team and four elementary school teams – two Under-10 teams and two Under-8 teams. The Elementary program is where the Lower Merion Ice Hockey Club has invested many resources and volunteer coaching time in player and skills development.

LMIHC SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

 

2016/17 Lower Merion Ice Hockey Club 

Dear Ice Hockey Enthusiast:

We are currently seeking Lower Merion Ice Hockey Club sponsorships to offset some of the costs associated with providing a successful and enjoyable ice hockey season.  Your sponsorship would help cover the cost of ice time and league fee expenses. Your assistance will make it possible for our players to develop, train and participate in the Lower Merion Ice Hockey Club programs starting as elementary level players and progressing through to our high school programs. We greatly appreciate your consideration.

We are a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit ice hockey club supported entirely by volunteers and players’ families.  Registration fees cover all expenses related to team operations which include ice costs, league fees and coach related expenses. The most significant of our expenses are the ice costs and league fees.  

Over the years, we have been able to provide each team with sufficient amount of ice time. Without support from the community, we will either need to increase the registration fees for some of the teams or reduce the amount of ice time.

Our ultimate goal is to have the opportunity to keep the number of middle school practice slots, bring in a goalie coach or power skating instructor, hold team social events and participate in extra events. This is why we ask you for your support.

We have four options for your donation.  In exchange for your level of generosity, your Company or Organization will receive the following:

  • Level 1 - $195 - Special recognition on our Club’s website at www.lowermerionihc.com
  • Level 2 - $245 - The name of your Company or Organization will be included on a ½ page in Club’s yearly Ad Book as well as recognized on the Club website
  • Level 2 - $295 - The name of your Company or Organization will be included on a full-page in Club’s yearly Ad Book as well as recognized on the Club website
  • Level 4 - $215 - The name of your Company or Organization will be listed on a page in Club’s yearly Ad Book along with other organizations as well as recognized on the Club website

If you are able to donate towards our efforts, we will promptly forward you a thank you letter with our tax identification number for your records.

On behalf of the Club, I thank you very much for your support and consideration of this sponsorship opportunity. Please do not hesitate to contact the Larry Kagan, Club Treasurer and Registrar or me if you have any questions about the sponsorship program.

Sincerely,

Carole D. Santilli, CPA

Lower Merion Ice Hockey Club President

SI PLAY APP EXPLANATION

 

Some Clarifying Information About the SI Play App

The company that we use for this webste was formerly owned by a company called League Athletics, but League Athletics has been acquired by SI Play.  The site is currently co-branded but is in transition to SI Play and will eventually only be an SI Play website.  The SI Play app is connected to this website and already supersedes the League Athletics app.  You can therefore delete the League Athletics app from your phone.  

The SI Play app is connected to this website.  All notifications and information come to your phone/SI Play app from info entered on the website.  You can see this information on the website by clicking Teams then choosing your team and then clicking Schedule.

In order for the SI Play app to work on your phone, your profile information on this website must be complete.  Most of the time, for most people, this was accomplished through registration.  The most important piece of information that MUST be entered in your player and parent profiles is your email address.   

If, after downloading the SI Play app to your phone, your team is not found on the app, then you need to login to your account on the website and make sure your email is entered.  Enter your email in the profile of both players and parents.

Once you have populated your information, including email address into your website profile, the app can find you and you will have SI Play on your phone.
