SDI Summer 4on4 League

Summer 2024
May 21st - June 14th
Trenton Kennedy Recreation Cen

The Summer 4on4 League is designed to be high-tempo to simulate real games to provide players with an opportunity to have fun while competing, conditioning, and working on their skills in an organized setting throughout the summer. Our goal is to provide an environment that balances the intense situations of the "real season" with the non-structured sticks-and-pucks sessions of the "off season". This is a summer league focused on fun. Although our goal is to host the most competitive league possible, winning a summer league championship should not be any parent’s goal for their player.

Note for 2024: The Trenton KRC will not have ice throughout July and August, so we pushed the 5-week 4on4 League ahead a month so we can finish by the end of June. Because of this schedule shift, we consolidated the amount of available player spots for each division.​

Registration Notes

  • Players register individually and we divide the players into teams. Our main focus is creating competitive/equal teams. We do not accept any requests from players to be on the same team as their friends/teammates.

  • Unlike players, goalies are not assigned to one specific team for the whole league. They are assigned to individual games.

  • Player payment is not prorated for missing a game(s). If a player's absence is communicated in advance, we will work to get him/her a makeup game.

  • Substitute players are assigned for missing players each week.​

Evaluation Notes

  • We follow a detailed process to create teams which includes using performance from the Evaluation Games(Week 1), our personal experience/knowledge of each player(we know the majority of the players), and notes from other coaches that know the players that we are unfamiliar with.

  • Players will be assigned to teams for the Evaluation Games(Week 1). Following these games, players will be assigned to a different team for the remainder of the league schedule.
