In person uniform fitting will be Saturday, August 1st – 12pm – 4pm at the Gardner Veterans Arena. Please come at your assigned time to avoid congragating, and as usual have your player bring shoulder pads for proper fitment. ALL PLAYERS and PARENTS are required to wear Masks. For those concerned, this fitting session is in compliance with guidlines set by the Board of Health.

  • Mite Players – 12pm – 1pm

  • Squirt Players – 1pm – 2pm

  • PeeWee Players – 2pm – 3pm

  • Bantam and Midget Players – 3pm-4pm.

Jerseys cost is est. $75 each and will be added to your account. In order to have jerseys before any potential games we need to factor in a 3 week lead time.

If you can’t make it to the fitting you still have additional 2 options to get sized.

  1. Go to John’s Sport Shop and they can get you fitted anytime between now and August 7th .

  2. Use the sizing chart below to size your child - if you choose this option; you must email your measurements to Rich Gauthier   with Player name, team and size.

The Deadline to get orders into NCMYH is August 7th.

SIZING CHART – This size chart defines the jerseys actual measurements for each size.

What that means is that if your chest measures 42” around, and you select a jersey whose measurement is also 42”, the jersey will be too small.

Please add the allowances you need to be comfortable. If you’re in between sizes, choose the larger size for a looser fit or the smaller size for a tighter fit.


Chest SMALL – Youth 36" – 38" / Adult – 41"-43"

Chest MEDIUM – Youth 38" – 40" / Adult – 45" - 47"

Chest LARGE – Youth 40" – 42" / Adult – 49" – 51"

Chest XLARGE – Youth 42" – 44" / Adult – 53" – 55"

House Hockey Registration OPEN & Travel Hockey Enrollment

Hello Everyone! 

All NCMYH Players must register with USA Hockey! 

Go to our USA Hockey Registration page for step-by-step directions.


This morning we have opened up House Hockey Registration! House Hockey is our in-house hockey program played locally in Gardner and Ashburnham.  This is an excellent low cost way to get your child on the ice for a competitive hockey season.  You can register and find more information by going to our Online Registration section of the

We have also finalized our Travel Hockey programs for Mite, Squirt, PeeWee, and Bantam. The only significant change we made was reduce the Bantam program from 3 teams to 2. All coaches have been assigned, and players placed on their teams.


*** Your 2020-2021 Travel Hockey Tuition is now reflected in your account. The first payment is due July 15th, 2020. ***

As you may know, two very Important changes to our regular payment process have been made for this year.

First, the first payment has been pushed back one month to July 15th, 2020. This hopefully has allowed families to budget a little more for this tuition.  

Second, we have extended the number of payments from our typical 6, to 7 months. This has effectively reduced the monthly payment to an amount we hope is more convienent for those hockey families adversely affected by the Covid-19 economy we're all living through. 

We are thankful for your commitment to Sting, and look forward to seeing your family for the upcoming House Hockey and Travel Hockey season. 

Go Sting!
