Why Play For Boston Shamrocks Hockey Academy?
The Boston Shamrocks Hockey Academy at Pope John XXIII gives young student-athletes the opportunity to grow and develop both on and off the ice. Playing a full season of hockey at the Tier I Midget AAA level can be incredibly taxing on a young individual as well as their family. Players often miss multiple days of school and travel hours on end to practice and games. This type of commitment can be detrimental to the player’s academic progress. The Boston Shamrocks are bridging the gap between academics and full season hockey. No longer will student-athletes need to miss multiple days of school and fall behind in their classes to play hockey. No longer will they need to do their homework in the car while driving two hours to practice— and no longer will they have to stay up through all hours of the night trying to catch up on the work or tests they missed because of a tournament over the weekend.
Here at the Boston Shamrocks Hockey Academy, we have developed a model that will allow our players to grow on the ice throughout a full season of hockey. They will not just be surviving in the classroom, but rather excelling. We will prepare our players to go on and attend the best academic and athletic colleges and universities in the country. Our philosophies are based around developing a road map for our student-athletes that will best prepare them for the recruiting and admissions processes ahead.
The Shamrocks will compete against some of the best teams in the country, playing in many of the most highly recruited North American showcases. Students will have access to tutors in all subjects as well as 24/7 care in the dormitory. Our rink is located just a half a mile away from campus, which allows our players to maximize their time both on and off the ice.
At this age, we believe it is crucial for these young student-athletes to focus on their goals, as well as understand the importance of hard work and diligence on the ice, in the classroom, and in the weight room. Athletes will be put on a strict workout regimen throughout the season, facilitated by team strength and conditioning coaches.
The Boston Shamrocks Hockey Academy Offers:
- 60-75 League, Tournament & Exhibition Games
- Education at Catholic Co-Ed College Prep school
- On Campus Housing Available (Room & Board)
- 4 Practices Per Week
- Major North American Tournaments
