Hockey Stars, led by Head Coach Paul Faulkner, is a developmental program available to all players ages 4 and older to introduce them to the game of hockey as a safe and positive experience. This controlled environment is geared toward beginner players and will teach the basic skills of hockey while building self-confidence, teamwork and fair play. This program is open to boys and girls from any local area town.
This program provides a seamless transition to hockey for players who have basic skating ability.
