The Mercer Chiefs are pleased to announce that Charlie Crispino will be the Club's Tier 2 Program Director. We want to take our Tier 2 program to the next level and eventually be one of the top Tier 2 clubs in the country!
Charlie Crispino will be in his first season with the Mercer Chiefs and will be entering his 25th season as a hockey coach. Starting at the Richmond Roller Hockey League and moving to the high school level, he was named the Head Coach of Wagner College after 4 seasons. In those 10 years, his record was an impressive 311-49-15, winning 9 league championships and taking Wagner College to Nationals in 4 different seasons. After leaving Wagner College, he coached for the NJ Devils Youth Hockey League for 2 seasons, taking the Bantam A team to the NJYHL playoffs in both seasons. In 2010, he became the head coach of the NJ Rockets Tier 1 Bantam AAA for 2 seasons, taking them to the playoffs in both seasons. In 2013, he was named the head coach and General Manager of the Metro Moose Jr. Hockey Team. In the 4 seasons he coached them, the Metro Moose never finished any lower than 3rd place, with a notable record of 111-44-8.
We welcome Charlie and his vast hockey knowledge and experience to the Mercer Chiefs and to Ice Land!
This season, the Mercer Chiefs are seeking local families to be billet families. What is a billet family you ask? An exceptional young player who lives outside the area and wants to come play for the Chiefs. Enter the billet family. Billet families provide a caring, supportive, family environment to be the home away from home for each of our players. Billeting can be a very exciting and rewarding experience for those willing to open up their homes. I know from personal experience – I have billeted boys the last 4 years and I can share that the experience was a wonderful one for my family. We will always consider these young men a part of our family. Also, I was once a billet player and I will always consider my host family my second family.
The player pays you $375 a month and these players have all been vetted and are special young men. You are not responsible for driving them to or from the rink. They are busy and are all young men who are looking to move on to play college and professional hockey one day.

Ice Land Skating Center opened its doors in the early 1990s and has been providing the community with a place to enjoy ice related competitive sports and recreational activities for many years. Ice Land's current owners purchased the facility and business in early 2018 and are firmly committed to the support and advancement of youth athletic programs in the region.
It is the overall goal to make Ice Land the premier ice skating facility in the area with its mission to provide disciplined, competitive, and fun hockey and skating programs to teach and to nurture the potential budding hockey and figure skating stars of the future. Additionally, the owners want to provide a venue to promote fun and physical activities for both adults and children out on the ice with a variety of in-house leagues, clinics, figure skating, Learn-to-Skate and open skating for all to enjoy.
Plans for the future include a remodeled pro shop, snack bar, locker rooms, rest rooms and entrance lobby, new rental skates, expansion of existing hockey and skating programs to meet the needs of our valued customers.
The future looks bright at Ice Land…come see for yourself and enjoy the fun while you are there!
