By defeating the Brooklyn Aviators Monday night in Brooklyn, the Long Island Rebels 16U AA team secured a spot in the New York State Championship Eastern Zone Sectionals.  The win on Monday capped a succesful weekend where the team was faced with a must win two of three scenario.  Facing the tough Westchester Vipers on Sunday, on Westchester ice, Dan Talia's Midgets dominated the game taking a 5-0 win into Brooklyn on Monday where they clinched the playdown spot downing the Aviators 5-2.  This trip to the "states" marks 10 striaght years of a Rebel Midget appearence in the "Big Dance"!  Congrats to the M16U AA Squad and good luck in the sectionals.

The Midget 18U AA team led by Greg and Tom Cartwright have one league game remaining.  The 18 squad will take on Hudson Valley on Saturday where a win in that game will put them in a three way tie (Rebels, Hudson Valley and Brewster) for the 2nd seed in the NY State championships.  A three way tie would come down to a complicated series of tie breakers that can not be determined until the final score is posted but regardless of the outcome this will be the most successful showing for our M18U age in quite some time.

As the LIAHL seasons draws to a close several other Rebels teams will be making an appearance in the LIAHL Championships...The PW Minor, Bantam Minor, M16U A, M16U AA and M18 U AA have all secured a place in the Long Island battle!

Over on the Lady Islander side, the Girls 12U and the Girls 19U teams, in the middle of state playdowns, each are one win away from securing a trip to Rochester to compete in the NY State Championships!

Buddy Skate 2014 was undoubtedly the largest and best event to date since its inception 12 years ago. Players from the LI Rebels, Lady Islanders, and Junior Royals turned out in force to help the visiting students. Smiles, new friends, and laughter filled the Dix Hills Ice Arena with a glow.

 I want to share a story, which I believe is a perfect encapsulation of the event as a whole:

      Early in the evening a mother and father entered the rink with their small child who, upon seeing the swell of the crowd, worriedly clutched to his father. Volunteer players guided the parents to the skate rental area, and helped put on and tie the child’s skates; all while he still held tightly onto his father.

      This continued as they walked out to the ice surface. Holding on to dad, and with mom just inches away ,the players tried to connect with the child; talking, joking and showing him how much fun skating can be. The child watched, but would not let go of his dad.   After several minutes, Coach R skated in to see if he could help.  He got down on his knees and spoke with the child, which seemed to lessen his grip on his dad.  I don’t know what he said, but the child soon let go with one hand and reached out to Coach R.

      With one hand on dad and the other on his new friend, the child calmed down and then let go of dad completely. Coach R picked him up and started skating around mom and dad; first slowly and then much more quickly.  Then it came: the smile, which soon turned to a chuckle, and eventually laughter. 

        Coach R reached down and put the child’s skates on the ice, pushing him in a circle around mom and dad. The four laughed together, without a care in the world, and only having met just minutes earlier.

I’m often asked “What is Buddy Skate”?   It’s a lot of things.
