HOUSE LEAGUE/LEARN TO PLAY HOCKEY
This Program focuses on early-level hockey skills and skating for players between 4 and 12 years old.
No prior hockey experience is required to participate in this no pressure learn to love hockey experience. We do recommend some level of skating proficiency (get up, start, glide, stop and turn). For brand new skaters we recommend participating in one of the Learn to Skate offerings- See the Learn to Skate webpage for more information about these Programs.
House League Details:
When: Saturday mornings (10:50am) from November 15th through April in three 8-week sessions-join one or all
Where: Northstar Ice Sports Center (15 Bridle Lane; Westborough, MA).
Cost: $80 for each 8-week session, your player will receive instruction from Starhawks coaches and High School players who all have hockey experience. If you sign up for the 24 weeks (all three 8-week sessions, Starhawks will have a special prize for you!);
Equipment: Full equipment is required and some will be available to borrow at the rink. For more information on equipment needed and how to dress your player, please visit our Equipment Page.
How: Please visit our On-Line Registration webpage to sign up for the House League in either two options: each 8-week session at a time or one 24-week session. Players who sign up for the 24-session option will be given a special gift!
The House League Program is spilt into three sections: 1) Beginners (skaters with starter skating experience); 2) Intermediate (skaters with at least one year of skating experience); 3) Advanced (skaters evaluated to have higher level skating experience). Our goal is to have the players at the best level for their skating and hockey development, so a player evaluation will be performed on the player's first time on the ice.
We will follow the USA Hockey American Development Model guidelines and have several stations for skills & skating development followed by small games. Fun will be stressed as the players develop their skating and hockey skills. USA Hockey has a great wepage for new hockey families, just click here.
Starhawks Youth Hockey had a great turnout at Northstar Ice Sports Center in Westborough, MA on Saturday, November 8th at 10:50am for our Try Hockey for Free event. The clinic allowed many players to experience ice hockey for the first time and learn the basics of the sport in a fun, safe environment. Over 70 players hit the ice and enjoyed an hour of hockey fun!
We’d like to thank the Northstar Ice Sports, Boston Bruins, USA Hockey, Mass Hockey, the Mike Cheever Grow Hockey Development Grant, Planet Aid and Starhawks Youth Hockey for helping make the event a success!
If your player is ready to play hockey, Starhawks Youth Hockey will be offering its Learn To Play Hockey/House League for eight more Saturdays (10:50am; Northstar Ice Sports Center) in November & December with two more 8-sheet sessions following this first session.
“We look forward to introducing new families to our sport,” said Mark Macaulay. “To help keep costs reasonable for parents, we’ve developed our house league to provide first-year players with a cost-effective introduction to hockey. We have loaner hockey equipment available for new players and create a fun, exciting environment in House League to help players develop their hockey skills. More information will be available at the event and on our website (www.starhawks.net).”
