My my My my
Taimer Hill McGowan - Please Support

My name is Jody Rumfola.  My son, Christian plays on the Pee Wee Major AAA Coalition Team.  Hockey is a commitment for the player and the player’s family.  With practices, games and tournaments, players and their families get to know each other well- as second families.  One of our family members needs help.  

Ethan McGowan, plays on the Pee Wee Major AA Team.  His mother, Taimer is undergoing treatment for cervical cancer.  Taimer had completed two treatments previously but the cancer returned.  In this, her third bout of treatment, Taimer has had allergic reaction requiring her to be inpatient to receive treatment.  She has been unable to work for the last two years.

Please consider making a donation to members of our hockey family, Taimer and her family.  Any amount of money can be helpful.  A few dollars can cover transportation costs and parking at the hospital.  Larger donations can help cover electric bills or mortgage payments.   Any amount will help.  

Please visit Taimer’s go fund me page: https://www.gofundme.com/a65sxy8g .  Please forward it to others that may be able to help too.

In her last update on go fund me, Taimer posted:

Please support and share my life with cancer.
Life is priceless, yet, I'm not able to afford to keep up with all that comes with treatment.
Please donate, my family and I thank you all for support you can give.
Peace and love- fighting cancer.
Hugs Taimer

Top Midget Organizations Join Forces for Beast Tournament Series

The top midget organizations in the northeast have come together to form the Beast Tournament Series in an effort to provide exposure and competitive hockey.

The founding members include Mid-Fairfield, Neponset Valley River Rats, North Jersey Avalanche and Yale Midget Hockey. Those four organizations will have teams in each division — 15U, 16U and 18U.

The Boston Jr. Eagles will field teams at the 18U and 16U level while Rochester Coalition will have an entrant at the 15U level.

The Philadelphia Jr. Flyers will be an affiliate member, appearing in two of the five showcases. Selects Academy at South Kent will appear in two of the events.

Each team will play a 10-game schedule with a championship series during the last weekend of October. Most games will be played at the Neponset Valley River Rats Jamboree, East Coast Classics Labor Day, Yale Jamboree and Beast Columbus Day Showcase.

The organizations had 70 NCAA Division I commits and six players selected to USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program (NTDP) between them during last season.

The Beast Tournament Series will be great for players, coaches and scouts as it will be the best of the best competing against each other instead of the watered down product there is at most showcases.
