Jr. Monarchs U16 and U18 Set to Join ECEL in 2015/16

The New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs are pleased to announce that they will be joining the East Coast Elite League beginning in the 2015-16 season.  The ECEL is one of the countries premier showcase leagues.  The move was made as part of an ongoing effort to improve the visibility of the strong midget programs that the Jr. Monarchs already offer.
Director of Junior Hockey Operations Ryan Frew, tadalafil said this about his programs move to the ECEL:

“We are incredibly excited to join the ECEL with our u16 and u18 full season midget teams. In the leagues short existence, it has emerged as a premier showcase provider. The exposure of our players to these new markets will provide them with an exceptional scouting opportunity that is not similar to anything currently offered in the Northeast. Our players will get a unique hockey experience at the highest level of play.  What’s not to love? We are also really looking forward to working with like-minded partners who focus on the highest quality product.”

Frew added, “When we were approached by the ECEL we knew right away that it was the best option for us. We have continued to stay committed to our our focus of attracting the best u16/u18 players around to play for the Jr. Monarchs. We will add a u14 team in 2016-17, and then have a true development model in place to recruit, retain, train, track, and deliver players to the highest levels of Junior hockey. Players and parents will be able to do all of that while staying with the same program and one trusted development model: OURS. This is a new opportunity for us and we are committed, and driven to continue to provide the best hockey option for players in the northeast.”

Assistant Program Director for the Jr. Monarchs Youth Programs, Jeremy Vega said, “It is a great opportunity for our youth aged players to compete vs some of the strongest teams in the country and gain exposure by playing in front of NCAA and Junior scouts.  We are excited about next year and our growth in the 2016-17 season, when we will field a Full Season U14 team. We pride ourselves on offering opportunities for our players and providing a great development model for them. We are continuously trying to improve for the benefit of our players, and coaches as well as the Junior Monarchs family, this is a step in a positive direction.”
