Chelsea Piers had to update the scheduling for the second to last game. The Yellow and Sky Blue teams will be playing at 7pm, and Maroon v Royal Blue are at 8:30pm. But! If you come early or stay late, you can play a second game. Since the benches were short last time we had a 7pm game, we could definitely use the extra skaters.
Personally, when I hear that there's extra ice time, I feel like this:
Ladies,Since some of the goalies are out of town and considering it's a double header weekend, we're going to combine the two games. For the rankings, that means that the win will count for both teams (or the loss depending if you're a glass half empty kind of player). Please don't use this as a complete hall pass to skip this weekend - we'd like to just have a few lines on the bench for a game :)
I'm also planning on using the other side of the ice to have a one-off game for more of the Div 1 players. It may or may not happen, but it's worth a shot. As always, the proceeds will go back into the league, probably in the form of post-game refreshments :)
And lastly, as summer is starting to dwindle down, people are asking about the winter league. There will be a women's league at Lasker. We're not completely sure of all the details, but it will be a week night. If you're interested and want to get on a mailing list, email us at ContactUs@athletes-only.co and let us know!

Just a quick announcement for the weekend, this is the last of the Sunday games (yay!). Both Friday and Sunday are at 8:30pm. Please let us know if you won't be able to make it! If the numbers are low, we will combine the two games so that summer Iron Man hockey does not have to happen.
Cause hockey is a gentleman's game (ladies game??) and we can all play together... even if it takes a few tries to get it right.
We need your help to fill the bench for each game. There was a great turnout for the first game, but the ranks have been thinner since then. We know that Sundays and early Fridays are not as easy to get to as the usual 8:30pm Friday night game, so we could use everyone's help to get full lines. Please let your friends know that we are now offering Walk-On's to join the games. It is $30 per game, and all of the proceeds will be put back into the league (either post-game refreshments or injury refunds).
First and foremost we wanted to thank everyone for making our first game a huge success. Although we still have a few kinks to work out everyone has been incredibly enthusiastic. We couldn't be more excited to playing with such an amazing group of women. A few trades will be made this Friday to help even out the teams and make the league as fun as possible! All updates will sent out by an e-mail and posted it on the site.
Looking forward to another fantastic weekend!
