The Jr. Islanders 2008, 06, 05, 04 and 15 AAA teams faced off against the Jr. Panthers and Jr. Black Knights in the Battle of the Hudson at West Point Academy over the weekend. 

The teams each received a one-hour tour of the military academy and climbed Torne Mountain as a team-building and fitness exercise with an Army Colonel. While hockey brought all of these teams to West Point, the weekend was ultimately about teaching these kids about collaborative leadership and team building.
