North Shore Hawks



Contact Bill Heney 781-789-2134 for general questions about the Hawks Program 




Since 2008 the North Shore Ice Hawks have been one of the most successful independent youth hockey programs north of Boston.  Our Program is guided by the belief that the youth hockey experience is an opportunity to encourage players of all ages to love sports, respect their peers, foster teamwork, instill hard work, be grateful, and above all have fun.  The Hawks program since its inception and at its core believes that every moment is a coachable moment and every player regardless of level of play deserves the opportunity to experience the great game of hockey.  The emphasis is not on winning at all costs but rather developing the skills each player needs in order to become the best player he or she can be. We think hockey is one of the ultimate team sports and participation in our program requires a commitment to the team and your teammates. 


Ice Hawks Hockey

Our teams are dedicated to eachother, our players compete at the highest level, and our coaches have an unwavering commitment to make our players better.  We offer a competitve 30 game regular season schedule, tournament play, one of the best practice schedules in the area at premier facilities and optimal times, an on ice skills program, and 16 sessions of private goalie instruction for our net minders. Goalies receive free training with Brian D'Accord's Stop It Goaltending and NS Performance Training  provides strength and conditioning for our older players. For all players, the curriculum will focus on skating - proper body position, edges, stride and puck skills - stickhandling, passing and situational play. We are also developing character. Hard work, sportsmanship and unselfish play are some of the attributes we seek to develop in our players.



The North Shore Ice Hawks staff  pledge that each player learn the finer points outside of hockey as well.  We stress and encourage a commitment to respecting and thanking family, providing service to the community and without question, commitment to schoolwork and education.  Our players are also encouraged to play all sports of interest as we believe fostering the whole athlete is how kids truly prevail.


Coaching Staff

Our coaches are carefully selected and all share the belief in the Hawk's mission.  For the 2017-2018 season the Ice Hawks will consider applications received from experienced and qualified coaches. To be considered, please email Bill Heney, Rick Tolstrup, or Bill Lemos with a synopsis of your coaching background and contact information.

Hawks U13 Elite Champs

Victorious team - 2016 / 2017 champs

Congratulations to our U13 Bantam team.  Having finished the season as the 4 seed in the PHL U13 Elite division playoffs the team finished the season with a couple of stunners. First they beat the undefeated 1st seed Walpole Express in their rink 2-1 in OT.  Then they went on to beat the two seed South Shore Conquistadors in finals this 3-2.  Great finish!   Both games were hard played with only 6 total penalties. 

Great to see the team do so well.  Half the players on this team have played their entire youth hockey career with the Ice Hawks.  Fun to see good kids develop into really good players.

Bill Heney played net in college and professionally and as a former netminder understands how important individual goaltending instruction is for developing goalies. In order to provide our goalies with regularly scheduled goalie specific instruction, the North Shore Ice Hawks are proud to announce a new affiliation with Brian Daccord's Stop-It-Goaltending. All Ice Hawk Goalies will receive cutting edge goalie training to enhance their technique at no additional charge throughout the season.
