Boston Advantage Hockey Club
The goal at
the Boston Advantage Hockey Club is to put forth a program in which players
will be provided with an atmosphere of growth and development. We are fully
dedicated to the advancement of your child as a hockey player and as a human
being, and will educate, instruct, and challenge them to be the very best that
they can be. Our philosophy is to place a primary focus on the development of
each player both skill-wise, and as a whole. Our Advantage players will be
taught what it takes to be a team player, and will be pushed to their limits in
order to further them as hockey players and as young people.
the Boston Advantage
prides itself on many different characteristics that separate us from other
programs, but none more important than the skills training that each player
will receive. Skill development sessions will be run by Tim, Joe, and the staff
of Lovell Hockey, which is second to none in the New England area. Our approach
is that each player is different, and should be instructed as such. Weekly
Practice Sessions: Each team will receive 2 practices which will be run out of
our home rink in Hingham. These practices will be conducted by the coaching
staff of each team, and will place a primary focus on player development as
well as teamwork.
will receive one skills session per week which will be conducted by the staff
of Lovell Hockey. We believe our staff is the best in the business because of
our attention to detail, and the results of the players that we have trained
speak for themselves.
goaltender will be able to train once a week with Goaltending Development Services, GDS. Coach Buckley's system fits all players' games, at every level. The GDS system is a thoroughly mapped out set of principles and variables that lays the groundwork for the goaltender's game. The system builds on the six core fundamentals of goaltending: skating, stance, positioning, save selection, rebound control and recovery. GDS coaching creates a strong technical base complemented by a focus on an athletic, unbounded style of play. This allows goaltenders to develop their own style based on their strengths, resulting in quick efficient movements and confidence in their game.
Advantage teams will be enrolled in the Elite 9 Hockey League and Boston Hockey
League. This is a league that endures minimal travel, coupled with some of the
strongest competition in the country. In addition, each team will be taking
part in a number of elite tournaments, which may include travel.
Our plan is
to develop our players from mites through bantams, and then advance them to our
unrivaled midget program. Our Under-16 and Under-18 Teams take part in the Tier
1 Elite Hockey League, the premier midget development league for the past 34 years. Additionally, we are the only program in New England with entry.
Some programs like to recruit kids from all over to fill their midget teams, we
would prefer to develop ours within, learn their game inside and out, and
promote them to the highest level possible.
