The North Shore Hawks hockey is a skills based hockey program that provides quality hockey development on Boston's North Shore.
The philosophy of the NS Hawks is to develop every player and play every player. 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. 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.
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 the 2016 and 2017 season the Ice Hawks will consider applications received from experienced and qualified coaches. To be considered, please email Bill Heney or Rick Tolstrup with a synopsis of your coaching background and contact information.
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.
