      Tryouts Dates:

      Our Syracuse Blazers 14U, 15U, 16U teams all have rosters spots available to players. If you are interested in trying out please contact Coach Pompo, Coach Bird, or Coach Walsh for more information. These teams are looking to fill these rosters over the summer and will be holding on ice clinics.  

      Syracuse Blazers offer an affordable option for those midget players looking to compete at the highest AA level, while also competing against various AAA teams.  Our Syracuse Blazers 15U, 16U and 18U teams are coached by seasoned volunteer coaches, with 20+ years experience at the AAA and AA levels.  We play in the WNYAHL, with a structured league schedule and playoff format.  Our schedule offers equal home and away league games, with a travel distance no greater than 1-2 hrs away.  In addition to our 18th Columbus Day tournament, that includes 24-30 teams on average, we will compete in the top AA tournaments, as well as the various AA/AAA tournaments. 

      Since our 2009 inaugural State Tournament Bound season, moving from independent AA, we have had a 10 year run of qualifying for the State tournament. Syracuse Blazers teams have either reached the semi finals, championship game, state title and qualified for Nationals.  Syracuse Blazers are among the top Student/Athletes on their High School Varsity teams. The Syracuse Blazers Alumni have gone on to play Prep School Hockey, D3 College Hockey, D1 College Club Hockey and Junior hockey.

      DICK’S Sporting Goods was founded in 1948 when an 18 year-old Dick Stack was working at an Army surplus store in Binghamton, New York. An avid fisherman, Dick was approached by the store owner to come up with a list of products needed to get into the fishing tackle business.

      When Cam opened on July 2, 1980 in Geneva, NY, we knew it wouldn’t be easy to succeed against the giants in this industry. But we started with a simple philosophy: Offer the very best products, at a fair and reasonable price, and success will soon follow.
