ABOUT OUR SPRING PROGRAM
The Stars spring program is intended to help develop girls' hockey players in Vermont. Over the last 16 years of the program, we have developed and implemented a training philosophy focused on helping players develop essential hockey skills with emphasis on puck touches and skating technique. We teach by using positive re-enforcement to instill confidence in our players. Practices are typically structured using the age appropriate USA Hockey ADM (American Development Model) guidelines. We have an experienced staff of coaches supported by current and past female NCAA players.
Commonly asked question:
Why do the Stars start so much later than other spring programs?
We start our program in early May to give most young players approximately a 6-8 week break from when their regular winter seasons end. We feel it's important for players this age to step away from the game and play other sports or just rest.
The spring schedule will consist of 9 ice practice sessions and 2 tournaments. A dynamic off ice warm up will be held before each Sunday ice session and all games. Our program wide 3v3 Spring Jamboree and spring season party will be held on May 19th. Practices are at Cairns Arena . 1st practices are Sunday May 5.
