The RISING STARS development program

Rising Stars is a fun, growth-oriented developmental program for 6-8 year old boys and girls who want to learn how to play hockey. A focus on agility, balance and athleticism are essential to growing hockey skills. This program is a great way for kids to develop both skills and a passion for the game. 

With 50+ hours of ice per season, a predictable weekly practice and game schedule, and experienced USA Hockey certified coaches, the Rising Stars is a great program tailored for new hockey players or those with beginner hockey experience.
