The 2009 Frozen Four will be held at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC and is co-hosted by the U.S. Naval Academy and the Greater Washington Sports Alliance.  The United States Naval Academy does not have a Division 1 Ice Hockey team, but they do have a rather competitive ACHA Division 1 team.  

 

During the day on Friday March 27, 2009, the Navy Hockey team will engage in a leadership outreach activity at St. Benedict’s Preparatory School in Newark, New Jersey.  St. Benedict's Preparatory School has served students from the Newark area since 1868 with an emphasis on rigorous academic study combined with a focus on developing virtue, character and talent of students. 

 

St. Benedict’s Preparatory School Student Demographics (per their website):
Black - 58.7%; Hispanic - 25%; White - 10%

Newark residents - 42.5%,

Irvington, Orange, and East Orange - 20.7%
Students come from 100 towns and about 215 schools; more than 60 are from 23 other countries; and about 40% are Catholics.

 

During the leadership outreach activity, the Navy Hockey players will host sessions in academic tutoring, leadership training and mentoring, and physical training and development.  Then at 6 PM, the Navy Hockey team will practice at the AmeriHealth Pavilion at Prudential Center (New Jersey Devils’ practice facility). 

 

Finally, the Navy Hockey team will conclude the 2008-09 ACHA season with a game against the Rutgers University Ice Knights at 1:30 PM on March 28, 2009 at the AmeriHealth Pavilion at Prudential Center.  Following the game, the Navy Hockey team and staff will watch the Devils vs. Carolina Hurricanes game, as guests of Mr. Jeff Vanderbeek, New Jersey Devils owner, and Rev. Edwin D. Leahy, Headmaster of St. Benedict’s Preparatory School.  This will be the second time Navy Hockey will be invited to attend a game at the Prudential Center, as they were also invited at the end of last season.

 

The previous owner of the New Jersey Devils was Dr. John J. McMullen, USNA Class 1940.  Due to his very generous donation, Navy Hockey’s home arena, The McMullen Ice Arena at The Brigade Sports Complex, is named in his honor.
