Training Only

Please fill out our Recruiting Form

The “Training Only” program is for parents that want their student-athletes to begin to train at an elite level with top level coaches.  The high-level drills/concepts and the up-tempo practices in our “Training Only” will be an unbelievable experience for your athlete.

This is open to young student-athletes not quite ready for our Premier 14U or 13U teams.  This training will occur throughout the entire season and will have top notch skating instruction combined with high tempo over-speed training all within the concept of “success is a result when preparation meets opportunity”.

Please fill out our Recruiting Form

 This is open to Squirt Major & PeeWee players.  Bantam level players will be evaluated for alternate positions on our Premier level teams.
After a year of “Training Only” your student-athletes will have not only had the best training available, but they will be ready to compete for the Black Bears Premier level teams.
The cost of our “Training Only” is the same as our alternate tuition.
For more information please call Neil Mulcahy (617-413-2604) or Alex Moody (978-807-6564).

“I had the blessing of being able to play three Varsity sports for four years in Prep School. Despite being an elite student-athlete, I still did not achieve my goal of a Division I scholarship. I was fortunate enough to be able to play Junior Hockey in the USHL, lived with a family in Madison, Wisconsin – and took a psychology class at Madison Area Technical College. All of the extra year activities gave me some outstanding college options. I was a more complete student-athlete. I was more mature physically and emotionally and I followed a passion of mine that made me very attractive to college recruiters and admissions officers. The “Gap Year” (http://www.admissions.college.harvard.edu/apply/time_off/index.html ) paid huge dividends. Not only did I receive a written scholarship to a Division I school in Ohio, but I earned acceptance into an elite small-Ivy league school. The extra year changed my life and has made an impact on everything I have accomplished since making that critical decision to take an extra year.”
