NH East 2024 Summer Skate

This summer, we are continuing with our dynamic flow drills that simulate real game scenarios. These drills are designed to build muscle memory, enhance agility and puck handling, and promote quick decision-making. Our focus is to increase puck touches, foster creativity, and help players learn how to grow as a team.

Additionally, we will emphasize gameplay more than ever. A significant portion of our practice will be dedicated to 3v3 and 4v4 games. We believe that the most effective way for our players to learn and understand hockey is by playing the game in its most fluid form. This approach will increase puck touches, foster creativity, and encourage faster decision-making under pressure—all while ensuring that the game remains fun and engaging.

This will be an 8 week program throughout the summer for $200. Please note the schedule for the exact time and dates:

  • Mite skates: Tuesdays at 5:00pm starting on June 18, June 25, July 2, July 9, July 23, July 30, August 6, and August 13.
  • Squirt/Peewee skates: Wednesdays at 6:10pm starting on June 19, June 26, July 10, July 17, July 24, July 31, August 7, and August 14.
  • Bantam/Midget skates: Thursdays at 6:00pm starting on June 27, July 3 (Wednesday), July 11, July 18, July 25, August 1, August 8, and August 15.

NHE Squirts Shine in 3 Minutes of Fame with the Boston Bruins

NHE Squirts with Boston Bruin Brad Marchand

Boston, MA: NHE’s Squirt 2 team took the TD Garden ice on Sunday, December 1st in front of a huge Boston Bruins crowd. As the Bruins and Canadiens left the ice after the first period, the Squirt 2 team skated on to the ice and for the next 3 minutes, were cheered on by the roar of the crowd as they passed the puck, scored a few goals, and soaked in the biggest of hockey stages. Likely motivated by the strong showing of the NHE team, the Bruins turned a 1-0 deficit into a 3-1 victory.

After the game, the team and parents were treated to a special meet and greet with Bruins star Brad Marchand. The Bruins scoring phenom took photos, answered questions, and signed autographs for the NHE family. Connor Clifton also took the time to sign a few autographs, and the team also had a chance to See Zdeno Chara up close.

Congrats to the players and their families for a special night full of memories.
