Hopedale Draft League Mission Statement:

"This league has been established to provide a fun, friendly yet competitive environment for hockey enthusiasts of all skill levels to enjoy the game of hockey.  By continually recreating teams via the draft method, players more easily cultivate friendships with players they may not otherwise know, as well as allowing for more skilled players to aid the development of lesser skilled players.  The Hopedale Draft league differentiates itself from other leagues by encouraging mutual respect, integrity, and sportsmanship among the players and officials. The league is promoted as a safe, friendly and competitive environment with no tolerance for body checking, aggressive use of the stick, and fighting."
