Massachusetts Hockey, Inc. (Mass Hockey) is an Affiliate of USA Hockey, Inc. for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This is a national sanction under federal law that allows Mass Hockey to implement USA Hockey programs, policies, procedures and rules in the Commonwealth relative to the sport of ice hockey and to initiate its own programs, procedures and rules to administer the sport in Massachusetts. In this capacity, Mass Hockey runs open playdown tournaments for national bound tournament teams at the Tier 1 and Tier 2 levels and conducts various tryouts for national and state player development camps.
