Good evening All,
We have yet to get an official word from the State regarding ice hockey re-opening this weekend. As a league we are ready to go. Games and practices have been scheduled, refs, scorers and coaches are waiting for the final word. The website will be updated either today or tomorrow. Please keep an eye on it. There may be new requirements put in place. We do not have all of the answers yet but will pass on any info as soon as we get it. Hopefully we will see you all Saturday !!!!
Looking for some holiday Chiefs swag for the kids. Please visit the gift shop......Thanks

Greetings Chiefs Families,
As a part of the Covid-19 Contact Tracing Program, Massachusetts is requiring all sports organizations to keep a record of attendance for both players and parents. In order to streamline this process, each time you enter Driscoll we will be requiring that you scan the QR code that has been placed at the entrance. Once scanned, you will be taken to a series of brief questions to answer before coming inside the rink.
If you do not have access to a QR reader, or are having problems scanning the code, you can visit the direct link:
Thank you for helping us comply with state regulations to keep all players and families safe.
