Boston Americans
2022-23 Girls Program Description

For the 2022-23 season, the Boston Americans will be offering full season teams at the U8, U10, U12 and U14 levels, as well as a Fall training program for High School players U16-U19. The U8 team is a supplemental team with 1 weekly skills session for 22 weeks and a 15-20 game schedule against a combination of Elite 9 Girls and VHL. The teams will be playing and training out of Hockeytown USA, Kasabuski and the Malden Valley Forum. The Boston American teams led by renowned Girls Hockey Director, Seth Goodrich, are members of the Elite 9 Girls Hockey League.

 

The members of Elite 9 are afforded the unique opportunity to also play against co-ed teams in the Valley Hockey League in addition to their E9 girls schedules. The Boston Americans girls program provides unique training and competition that no other girls program in New England offers, including the ability to compete in the Valley Hockey League against boys teams from across Massachusetts. "The weekly competition against boys teams is a key part of our girls development" says Goodrich, "it forces our girls to make decisions a little bit quicker and play a little tougher. The results of these co-ed games are obvious in our Mass & USA rankings against teams that only play against girls teams." 

 

The Valley Hockey will be a key component of the Boston American Girls training and competitive development. A large majority of NCAA DI commits from Massachusetts have honed their skills and developed into elite players by playing against the top boys teams in the VHL. This opportunity to compete in the VHL is only available to a select few girls programs in New England, including the Jr. Warriors and Boston Americans.

U8 Supplemental Team

New for 2022-23 the U8 team is designed to "Supplement" the girls co-ed Valley League team. The U8 girls’ teams will get together for 1 weekly skills session for 22 weeks and a 15-20 game schedule against a combination of Elite 9 Girls and VHL

This will give the girls the opportunity to enjoy the comradery of an all-girls team, while still enjoying the benefits of playing for their co-ed team at this young age.
