Renegades Alum Off To France To Start Pro Career

NICK GRAZIANO - NJ Renegades(EHLP)-Team MD(EHL)/European Pro Player  

"Coach Fusco at TM as well as my father Coach Graz who coached me most of my career and 3 years on the Renegades Jr Team, as well as my whole overall experience in the EHL & EHLP, has prepared me for this next step in my career and I cannot thank my coaches enough for the guidance and help they have given me," said Graziano. "I'm extremely excited about starting my professional career in France."

Graziano is the prime example of a player progressing on his way up the ladder, after playing three seasons for his father with the Renegades, and his final two years of Jr hockey for Coach Fusco with Team Maryland.

Jr Tryout Camp

“Last year our Team Maryland Jr program in the EHL held a combo Jr ID skate with our EHL Premier affiliate The NJ Renegades and it was a tremendous success. I found a bunch of players from that camp Aspen Ice Arena in Randolph, NJ. It’s a well run event where the players not only get scouted, but have a chance to meet the coaches from both programs and sit-down with them to talk about how our overall development plan will benefit every player.”                                         

- Josh Fusco, Head Coach of Team MD


The Renegades Annual FREE Open House ID Skates provides players and their families an opportunity to come in and meet the staff and see what we do on and off the ice as a glimpse into our program.  The players are put into a fast-paced, high intensive workout followed by full ice games.  Then we will show them the facility, locker room, video room, hockeytv setup, etc... and hold a Question & Answer period with former players (alumni players and parents) to discuss the benefits of our program from the player/family/customer point of view.  

This is a great way for all perspective players and their families to come in and check out our program 1st-hand and is a sure fire way to see that we are...

The hidden jewel of the hockey world!


Rens Mourn the loss of our hall of fame coach & friend

Our brother and fellow Renegades Alumni Coach Chris Ceransky passed away on Friday March 4th, 2022. It is a sad, sad day! The last 24 hours have been heartbreaking for all of us concerned for Chris and his family.

To his wife Sam Ceransky & Chris’s parents and extended family, we are all here for you. Please reach out if you need anything!

Topher Ceransky was like a little brother to me. He started coaching in our youth program then on to our Renegades Jr team. We coached together for many, many years with the Renegades, Turcotte Stickhandling, Team MD, and many other clinics, camps and lessons. He exemplified everything we wanted in a Renegades coach, but more importantly he was a true friend.

I, along with the many players he coached, coaches he coached with, and parents that reached out in the last 24 hours was an amazing support of our hockey family that Chris helped us build. He will be missed by everyone that knew him. I love you brother. He is and always will be a Renegade, and part of of our family.

Cliff Graziano Jr.

What is a Renegades Billet family?  

It's a host family that takes in a Jr player in the age range of 16-20 years old, that needs a place to live for the 6 month Jr team season.  

Billeted players assist with chores around the house, help your kids with their homework and their sports endeavors!

Any family that billets will get discounts on lessons, clinics, etc... please make sure to ask Coach Graz!

We ask for "Billet Families" to provide a clean, safe, family-friendly environment for our players, and in return, billet families receive a monthly stipend to cover food expenses for the players.

If you are interested in learning more about being one of our Billet Families, please reach out to Cliff Graziano at as soon as possible!

We are in need of a few more "billet," families for the upcoming season so if you are interested please let us know ASAP!

Thank you for your consideration to help further our players' futures and to build these life long relationships!
