The 18U and 16U Tier 1 Yellow Jacket National Bound teams are made up of prep school players from all over New England. The prep teams will solely play games on the weekends, Saturday evening and Sunday mornings with the exception of local tournaments, where Friday night games could be scheduled. There will be no practice with this team. The structure of this program is to provide exposure for players to elite competition, Division I & III colleges, NHL Scouts and help them better prepare for their upcoming prep school season. This team will play 25-30 games over the course of the fall season. The season will start August 26th and end November 13, 2022.
