GNYCIHL and New York Apple Core Juniors to Work Together
NY APPLE CORE JUNIORS & GNY STARS FORM WORKING RELATIONSHIP
BROOKLYN, NY…. Two of the area’s best known programs, the NY Apple Core College Development based out of Long Beach & Brewster NY and the Greater NY Stars, based out of Coney Island, Brooklyn have formed a Youth to Junior Hockey progression. The GNY Stars run a top youth program and the NY Apple Core a top Junior program. The transition from 16 U to Juniors will be coordinated by both organizations. The GNY youth teams play in both the LI League and the Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League. The NY Apple Core provides three levels of Junior teams playing in the EHL, MET and Empire League Hockey Leagues. Apple Core has sent over (275) players onto top College and professional careers, including players such as Rob Scuderi (2 Stanley Cups), Mark Eaton (ex-Islander) & Matt Gilroy (Ex-Ranger). The two organizations have many ties already such as the Davie brothers who both played at the ‘Core and went onto play their College hockey at SUNY Cortland. GNY Stars employ many ex-‘Core players as Coaches for their Youth Hockey teams. “This is a great opportunity for the GNY players to move to a top Junior program with easy transition” stated GNY President Matt Davie. At the same time AC will direct young players from their various clinics to play at GNY, develop as hockey players and then move onto Junior hockey as they prepare for College. “Greater NY has some great young coaches who are teaching the players character as well as hockey” stated Apple Core GM Henry Lazar. “Based on the tradition the two organizations have with each other, this progression was a no-brainer. The Stars top 16 U players will be practicing with the ‘Core Junior teams ensuring a total experience for the players.
