Our Goal

The goal of the East Coast Leafs organization 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. One of the guiding principles in establishing the East Coast Leafs, was to emulate the success of our marquee program, the Boston Advantage. Our philosophy is to place a primary focus on the development of each player both skill-wise, and as a whole. Our Leafs 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.

About the Leafs

Our program 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 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 primarily run out of our home rink in Hopedale. 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.
