"Raleigh Surge"


Raleigh IcePlex Youth Travel Team Surge


The Iceplex is proud to announce for the 2016-2017 season, a House Select Travel Program called "Raleigh Surge".

The Iceplex Surge's mission is to introduce the youth of the Raleigh-Durham area and surrounding communities to the great game of ice hockey. Every child, coach and parent through their participation in the program, can enjoy a positive, character building sports experience while creating a passion for the game.

Iceplex Surge believes that through the development of every individual the entire organization benefits, resulting in great depth and knowledge for the game. Teamwork, sportsmanship and discipline produces a level of confidence that brings success in the competitive hockey environment.

Emphasis will always be placed upon education, personal development, and respect for others. We are committed to creating a partnership with parents of the players and improving community participation. The individual conduct of board members, coaches, players, and parents will be maintained to ensure a positive culture in which all can honor the sport, and exemplify an organization in which to be proud of.

Iceplex Surge honors the idea that first and foremost the program exists for the benefit of the child.

Tryout Dates:
Monday Nov 7th from 6:45p-7:45pm

Most tournaments are combining the U16/U18 age groups due to low numbers, so, we do have the option to follow that trend in order to field a team.

You can download the Surge brochure so you can have this season's info. We use a practice slot at 6:45p - 7:45p every Monday. Teams will alternate when they have Monday practices. There will also be some all team skill development clinics as well as checking clinics for the U14 - U18 teams. I encourage you to spread the word, email your house league teams, and get the word out so we can have a succesful try-out and build our Surge program into a winner. Cost for the try-out is $15. Please arrive early to fill out the registration form, also please bring a copy of the player's birth certificate and a copy of their current USA Hockey insurance. We need this info to eventuallycertify the team rosters. If you have any questions please feel free to call me on my cell or text me, 919-624-2121, I will be very limited with email this wknd so my mobile is the best way to reach me.
