The Frederick Freeze is excited to announce that we will be welcoming some fresh faces to our Board of Directors, as well as the return of some our current board members. This year, there were five open positions to be filled. The board received five great new candidate applications as well as the application of an existing member who’s current term was up. Rather than holding elections, the board voted to expand the BOD by one seat to an eight member board and accept all of the very qualified applicants.
Returning members are:
Mark Macera, Maria Brown and Steve Ferrone
The newly appointed members are:
Sean McGee, Todd Blaszak, Nick Dabruzzo, Angie Hulton and Pamela Horan
The board would also like to thank Will Aleshire, Patty Finch, Scott Moyer and Don Asmonga for their years of dedicated service. Their dedication and contributions will surely be missed.
The current board will be welcoming the new members to the March board meeting for introductions and the new term will start April 1. We look forward to having the new board guide the future direction of our club.
Our U16AA team was victorious against the Nashville Flyers in the Smokey Mountain Shoot out with an impressive 3-1 win.
Unfortunately our two Pee Wee teams came up a bit short in the finals against some stiff competition. We congratulate both teams for putting up a fierce fight.
Wishing all our teams safe travels on the way home.

Please join us Sunday, October 22nd for our Party in the Lot to support Sammy McClellan. He can really use our support. See the link below for details.
It is hard to express the sadness that the Frederick Freeze feels to announce that we have recently learned that one of our own, Sam McClellan, was recently diagnosed with leukemia. Sam, a member of Coach Steve Renzi’s Upper A Pee Wee team, is currently receiving care at Inova Children’s Hospital, in Fairfax, Virginia.
The Freeze will be working with Coach Renzi, the McClellan family and others to plan various events throughout the season to assist Sam and his family through this difficult time. Please keep an eye on your email and our Facebook page for what’s to come. And most importantly, let’s all keep Sam and his family in our thoughts and prayers.
Parents and Players,
Last year, the Frederick Freeze participated in the October Saves program to raise awareness for cancer research for woman and children. We'd like to ask ALL goaltenders to sign up at https://octobersaves.org/goalie-register/. We encourage all coaches, parents, and players to support their goaltenders in this endeavor, https://octobersaves.org/goalie-list/. The players that raise the most for the charity are able to win some fairly spectacular prizes all while raising money for a wonderful cause started by a local hockey/goalie mom that has gone nation wide! https://octobersaves.org/rewards/.
Thank You in advance,
