The Appalachian Elite, in conjunction with the Mid-State Mustangs, will have a post-season 10U program in March of 2019. The goal of this program is to offer the opportunity to prospective new 10U players to receive a sample of the type of player development, training and a high level of competition that Mid-State Mustangs teams are accustomed to.
The program will feature on-ice practices and tournament competition. This will be a nice introduction and preparation for the upcoming Mustangs spring program and the tryouts for 2019-20 regular season that commence in April.
The program will be led by Kris Carlson. Kris has an extensive hockey background with over 35 years of experience spanning from high school, AAA, Junior, College and Professional hockey.
An open skate for interested players will be held on January 16 at 6:00pm at the North Central Recreation Center in Ebensburg.
There will be a $20 fee to participate.

Growing the game we love is successful when you have strong relationships. Over the past year, the Mid-State Mustangs have worked alongside our colleagues with Appalachian Elite Hockey program to continue to grow our programs and ensure the long term viability of providing the quality program that has become a tradition within the Mid-State Mustangs. Through this relationship, we have been able to give local players opportunities at the 14U and 16U levels that otherwise might not have been possible. We are also working together to introduce the next wave of new Mustang players that we hope will wear the uniform for years to come. And lastly, we will be soon introducing a scholarship program that will be introduced to help players and families that are less fortunate the ability to afford the often high cost of playing hockey. Although the logos differ, we are united in our mission to provide the very best hockey opportunities for local players. #strengthinnumbers
The Mid-State Mustangs 12U team hosted Team Philadelphia for a pair of game on December 16. The day had more than just hockey in mind. The team held "Pink The Rink" throughout the day which included food, 50/50 drawings, prizes, t-shirts and more as we show our support in the fight against cancer. Proceeds of the event benefited one of our own Mustang families as they are in the fight against cancer. Hockey is family!! Great job 12U team!!
