The Northern Cyclones are proud to announce that the U19 and U16 teams will be scheduling games against Selects Hockey Academy for this coming winter. The teams will be doing home and away weekends during the winter. The U19 team has added some depth up front with a couple of local boys Joe Sartorelli (Chelmsford, MA), Shaun Moody (Londonderry, NH) , and Jonah Hadley (Saugus, MA). Alec Rippetoe will also be a big piece of the team’s offense next season along with returner Alec Lefave. The U16 team has signed its second goalie Drennen Atherton. The ’97 goalie is coming to the Northeast from Florida. Channing Gorscak will be a big piece to the team’s offense next season after having a great season with the Pittsburgh Selects last year. There are still a few spots open for both teams. There will be a Main Camp June 15-16 at Cyclones Arena.

The U19 and the U16 Cyclones are proud to announce that they will be competing in the EJEPL this coming winter. The U19 team will compete as a U18 team in the league while also playing in the MET League. The league will consist of a twenty game schedule with games against teams from all over the east coast. The Cyclones will be hosting a league showcase in December. With the season months away, both teams are comin g together very well. The U19 team seems to be very strong in the net with three very strong ’96 goaltenders: Jimmy Poreda (Buffalo, NY), Joe Beauchesne (Londonderry, NH), and Nick Amato (Coconut, FL). The U16 team is proud to announce that local boy Alec Marshall (Nashua, NH) will be one of the goaltenders for the team this coming fall. There are still available spots for both teams. Please contact Head Coach Frank O’Connor at email@example.com for more information. Look for more updates each week!
Each season the Cyclones recruit talented junior hockey players who show great potential to play at the college level, and beyond, who do not live within a reasonable driving distance of the Cyclones Arena. To take advantage of this great opportunity, the players need families willing to share their homes, and become a “home away from home” for them. The importance of the billet families to the Cyclones organization is immeasurable.
Many of our billet families have done this for dozens of players from all over the United States, Canada and Europe through the past 9 years. These boys, ages ranging from 16-20, have been able to complete their high school educations, take classes in local colleges, or hold part time jobs while pursuing their hockey opportunities and dreams. In most cases, very strong bonds are made between the player and his billet family as well as with the player’s family. These relationships will often carry on for many years after the player has left the team. Often billet families can be seen following the player in his future career be it college, semi-pro or pro. Our players have proven to be great role models for younger children in the billet family, as they demonstrate hard work and determination to achieve tough goals.
What is expected of the host family? The player needs a room of his own, or can share with a team member. He needs a bed, bureau, closet space and a desk or table and chair. While players are expected to provide bed and bath linens, personal care items, cell phones, media equipment and take care of their own transportation needs (most have their own vehicle). The family also needs to make food available throughout the day. For example: a basic breakfast, sandwich meats/leftovers at lunch and an evening meal if he’s home and you’re cooking! While on the road, players will take care of their own food expenses.
What is expected of the players? They must adhere to all team and house rules and show respect and consideration toward all family members. Your generosity will not be taken for granted.
