Our 2021-22 season kicked off with our Exposure Clinic (August 26), Dawg Daze of Summer (August 27-29) in Northford, CT, and Labor Day Challenge (September 3-6) in Simsbury, CT.

Combined, the showcases hosted one hundred and seven (107) teams across 5 divisions – 10U – 19U – and everyone seemed to be happy to be back in showcase mode. We hope it was a great way for your teams to kick off their season!

Exposure Clinic

Skaters received personalized instruction and attention from some of the best coaches. In attendance were coaches from Merrimack College, University of Connecticut, Quinnipiac University, Post University, UMass Boston, SUNY Oswego, Trinity College (NESCAC), and Western New England University.

Always a fun event with skills in the AM and games in the afternoon, the Coaches also facilitate a working lunch with the student-athletes talking through recruiting, what its like to be a college athlete, and giving skaters a chance to talk directly to coach in a  small group setting.
