North Shore Ice Hawks, LLC hockey is a skills based hockey program that provides skating and stick skills development in a structured team environment.
The philosophy of the Ice 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 become. 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.
Practices and games will all be on the North Shore of Boston except for travel tournaments. We attempt to keep games and practices at reasonable hours for parents and players. Local games. Local practices. Great skill development. There is a LOT of hockey talent in Northeastern Massachusetts. We feel that by eliminating the rat race of driving to another state every weekend to play a youth hockey game we help parents and kids recapture some of the lost time spent driving to rinks. Besides an occasional overnight tournament, your player's games and practices will be local and at reasonable hours.
Hockey is an expensive sport. The Ice Hawks try their best to keep costs down for their players and families and charge only enough to cover ice expenses and referees.
Goalies receive free training with Brian D'Accord's Stop It Goaltending and we've also brought in acclaimed skills instructors Pertti Hasenan and Neil Mulcahy to provide skills development for skaters throughout the season.
If you'd like to keep it local, fun and challenging for your son or daughter please contact
