Alumni Hockey: Save The Date!

Relive your glory days on the Avon ice in the Alumni Face-off game and then bring the whole family for an open-skate!

Mark your calendars and tell your friends —the 2019 Alumni Hockey Faceoff is happening Friday, Feb. 8, and Saturday, Feb. 9!

Last year, more than 80 of Avon's alumni hockey players returned to campus to get on the Jennings Fairchild ice once more. In total, 150 alumni, family, and friends of Avon hockey all came together for a weekend full of fun.

This year, activities will kick-off with a cocktail reception and registration on Friday night in the Avon Old Farms School Commons Room. Afterward, the hockey reunion will continue at The Olive Bar in Unionville, thanks to owner George Psaras ’98.

Year one was a huge success and feedback thus far for year two has been massive….We've expanded the format to include three games this year!  Don’t miss this opportunity to see the newly renovated rink and reconnect with old friends and one of the most storied programs in the history of prep school athletics!  We encourage you to bring your wives, kids, moms, and dads!

Registration will continue for those who arrive Saturday morning from 9 - 11 a.m.

Following the alumni games will be a family skate hour and lunch before the Winged Beavers Varsity Hockey Team takes on Deerfield Academy at 3 p.m.
