The Official Press release on joining the Beast
The New England Generals Affiliate Midget Program is proud to announce that they are providing yet another way to get great exposure for its players. We are going “Beast” mode and joining the Beast League in the U16 & U18 Showcase Divisions for 2019-2020 with our Split Season Teams.
The Beast League features some of the top programs in USA Hockey providing great exposure & competition for Midget hockey on the East Coast. Since it’s inception, the league has boasted more Division I commitments than any split season league in the Country.
The Beast is expanding & will feature a Showcase division at the U16 & U18 age groups. The founding members of the Beast league are committed to providing more opportunity for players to be seen by College, Junior & Professional Scouts. The Beast events have already proven to be a destination for Scouts and by adding more top teams and top players, it will enable Scouts to be able to more effectively evaluate a broader spectrum of talent.
The Northeast Generals organization already has had scores of NCAA commitments in its four-year existence, only three years in the NAHL, with many player awards at the collegiate level from their #GENSFamily that have progressed from our organization.
These U16/U18 teams will be comprised of the top players on various Prep School and High School teams throughout New England.
Our affiliate teams interact & feed players to the NAHL/ NA3HL clubs post-graduation and are a great way to get a season-long “tryout”.
