The Vermont Frost Heaves are in - we're holding a press conference on Friday, August 6 at the Barre Auditorium at 12:00 noon during which time we'll introduce our new general manager and, hopefully, our coach.

We're operating the team as a fan-driven, fan-led, non-profit company, called GO Heaves, Inc., with a social mssion. Our mission is to play serious and competitive basketball in a family friendly, affordable environment, and invest staff and financial resources to improve the well-being of our community.

We're going to play all of our games in central Vermont which means no games in Burlington. The board of directors will re-visit that issue a bit further down the road. Most of fans and our volunteers are from central Vermont and we wanted to focus on what's manageable for our new company this year.

We're all pretty excited here in Barre. We're not too giddy, though, to underestimate the challenges ahead.

See ya in the stands!

Thanks -

From my perspective, I am happy that the Frost Heaves are back - and that all their games will be played at Barre. I enjoyed the times I went to Burlington; but have you ever tried to find a parking spot there for a Heaves game? At least Barre's got enough parking and is easily accessible - I just have to navigate 40 miles of that winding Route 100. :)

Congratulations Go Heaves. What an achievement to raise that much money in such a short time. It reflects well on the current management and devoted fans of Vermont. Good luck in the future.

Congrats!!! It is good to see that basketball will remain alive in Vermont. I am also glad to hear you are out of Burlington. In Burlington it was IMPOSSIBLE to park, especially during the winter.

Best of luck to you guys.

This is great. I really thought Vermont was down for the count. This is definitely a big victory for basketball in the Green Mountain State and definitely a big boost for the league -- by my math the PBL is at 7 teams.
