All hockey programming is on pause at LECOM Harborcenter as we continue to follow all mandates set forth by the Federal, State and County Health agencies. With BEHL originally set to begin March 22nd and finish June 14th, we are working hard to plan for the future. It is our hope that we are able to begin by May 8th and still be able to finish the entire season with a short extension of the season into July. We will consistently reevaluate on a week to week basis and make additional announcements as needed to ensure all are informed. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we all adjust to the changes in our lives. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Sean at firstname.lastname@example.org
