Heights May Consider Co-op Ice Hockey Program

Paramus Board of Education trustees hope to co-op with Hasbrouck Heights in order to save its ice hockey program.

Hasbrouck Heights school district is considering proposals from area high schools looking to co-op their ice hockey programs.

Paramus High School, one of the schools which has made a proposal to the Heights district, is hoping to co-op in order to save its program.

The Spartan team has decreased in the number of players over the past year and will need players from an outside district joining in order to keep it going, Paramus Board of Ed trustees say. 

Hasbrouck Heights has taken part in co-op teams such as Wood-Ridge for example for other sports but has yet to have its student atheltes play ice hockey.

According to Heights BOE trustee Connie Doheny, the district is considering the proposal from Paramus and also one from Old Tappan.

Paramus Board of Education trustee Jeffrey Warren says its team is currently at 18 members, 6 of whom have not skated before. The addition of six players from Heights would help save its team.

Decision on the coop partnership is expected to come next month.
