The P.A.L. Junior Islanders, formerly known as the Suffolk Juniors, field 10 elite teams from Mites to Juniors. Each of these teams plays at the highest level of competition, with the goal being to develop the best student-athletes possible.
Our NCDC, 18U, 16U, and 15U teams compete in the United States Premier Hockey League (USPHL). Here, the players will continue to develop under coaching staffs led by former professional players and coaches. The goal of our organization at this level is to advance each player into college hockey. Our staff has played a role in the development of numerous NHL and Minor Professional hockey players over the years. In 2014, three of our players were invited to take part in New York Islanders Rookie Camp and Scrimmage.
