Practice Times


 I've been asked by a few so sending a quick reminder. There are very few 5pm practices between Thanksgiving and March 1st. The Haverhill High School Varsity team uses the practice ice at 5pm most days.  So that means, like usual, our skills times shift by 1 hour. Mites at 6pm, Squirts 7pm, Peewee 8pm and Bantams at 9pm. That also means that other consistent practice schedules from the fall, may not be the same. Please check the program website for all the latest schedule additions/changes.

Santa Parade Update / Details
See Below for an update from out Santa Parade organizer, Tama Parsons. Good afternoon everyone. Thank you for your interest in walking with the Haverhill Thunder for the 2021 Santa Parade. Please see below for information that I ask that you forward along to your players/parents regarding Sunday. MEETING PLACE: Wood School 25 South Spring St. Bradford (you will see us) this is for drop offs only, you can NOT park at Wood school, if you are a parent and plan on walking you also must be dropped off or park further away and walk over. There will be a shuttle service offered to bring you back to wood school from the end of the route. TIME: 11:00am...PLEASE NOTE: They start to shut down roads early so please make sure you have a plan to get there no later than 11:30am (we start lining up around 12:15) WHAT TO WEAR: Green game Jersey over their sweatshirts, rollerblades if they have them and street hockey sticks... (if you are a Coach/ parent walking with us please rock your favorite Thunder gear) (I will bring a few street hockey balls and will explain that this is just for stick handling and showing those skills NOT for taking slapshots) GAME PLAN: 3-4 kids will be walking with banner, some kids rollerblading, some kids tossing candy (please ask for candy donations from your team to be given today at practice or bring with you sunday), us parents and coaches will be handing out flyers with program information. WHAT HAPPENS AT THE END OF THE PRADE: There is a new route for the parade this year. The parade officially starts at Hunking School, goes over the Bradford bridge, takes a left to go downtown, takes a right at the post office and comes around the boys and girls club and finishes at Garr Park. I think I covered everything, I have walked in this prade for many years as a participant growing up and 15 years as a coach so I know how smooth it can go and also know how crazy it can get, so please reach out if you have any questions I am here for you!! I'm hoping this becomes a fun annual tradition for the Haverhill Pentucket Thunder Hockey program for many years to come Tama Parsons (978)-401-8860

Schedule Updates - Games and Practices

Hi Parents,

 We have updated the next round of games and practices to the program website. Because of the way the VHL releases the schedules, we hold back practice times so we can ensure there are no confilcts. As the VHL releases games, we add practices to maximize the ice time we have as best as we can. We appreciate your patience. As we turn the page towards the fall season, I did want to remind you of one item, High School season. Once we get past Thanksgiving, we lose all of our 5pm ice times. The Haverhill High School Varisty teams takes this ice, and they have priority over us. That means our times typically slide back an hour, notably on Tuesdays. We will look for additional ice time during the week to supplement when available and if possible, we'll add more practices at that time. 

Speaking of the high school boys team... In the event that locker rooms are once again opened (fingers crossed), I do want to remind the teams that have practice at 6pm to be mindful that there will be 15-18 year old boys coming off the ice, and likely using the showers. They are not shy about using the showers and want to warn everyone so they can determine where their childen get ready for practice.
