Jr. Hockey Is Back !

The Chester Castaways Jr. “C” Hockey Club is excited to bring junior hockey back to Chester.  We will begin our inaugural season in September 2019 in the NSRJHL.  We are recruiting player’s ages 16-20 years old.  We will strive for excellence on and off the ice.  The Castaways staff will strive to bring a true Junior Hockey experience in a competitive environment to all players. All home games will be played at the Eleanor Pew Arena.  Local and surrounding area players will have a chance to play their Junior Hockey close to home at an affordable price. Buckle up Chester fans, you’re in for a fun filled winter of hockey at its best so dust off your noise makers and come out and cheer on your Chester Castaways!

Interested players are encouraged to contact Mike LaPierre for information / questions about the Castaways program.

Remember When?

In 2008 the land at the East side of the parking lot housed a Scout Hall and Tea Room, shown below.  These two buildings were used by numerous community groups and organizations for many many years.
