Boys Tier 1

Time Commitment

The Jr. Sharks mission is to develop our players on and off the ice. Our membership benefits from knowledgeable coaches that train our players according to USA Hockey’s American Development Model and Long Term Athlete Development Principles. Each team’s program is tailored to the windows of trainability for their specific age and maturity. The Jr. Sharks experience includes off-ice skill, strength and conditioning, along with practice ice and classroom discussion.
