THE AMESBURY MAPLES
AMESBURY -- Maples Crossing is named after the legendary barnstorming Amesbury Maples amateur hockey club.
Started as a team representing the local mill, the Maples hold the distinction of being the first amateur hockey team in the United States.
Playing their home games in an outdoor rink not-so-lovingly nicknamed "Pneumonia Park," the Maples competed at the national tournament level each season, even playing some of their home games at Boston Garden in the 1930s.
We're proud to associate with the Maples team and we hope to continue their tradition of a community-based organization marked by excellence and sportsmanship.
