Substitute Policy (Players and Goalies)

Substitute Goalies

Goalie Requests
We make our BEST EFFORT to find a goalie when your team goalie can't show up. If you need a goalie, captains must contact no later than 4 days before a game to allow us time to find a replacement. Best efforts will be made, however, there is no guarantee that we can find a replacement.
If you need a goalie, please contact
goalies@hockeynewengland.net.
