Driscoll Skating & Skills is launching an All-Star team and partnering with Town Hockey programs in the effort.
The Driscoll All-Star teams will feature a developmental model with a curriculum that will complement what the players are learning in their Town Hockey programs. The goal of the program will be to offer those players and families that want more hockey to be able find quality instruction at an affordable price and to be teammates with other like-minded players and families.
Note: All players selected for the Driscoll All-Star team must be playing Town Hockey and only Town Hockey. i.e., It is understood that Town Hockey takes precedence and our program will not be a player’s third team.

Please Note: Because we are launching mid-season, we expect the first year to have less players trying out for the teams. If we need additional ice time to make final cuts, we will do so.
The 2018-2019 Driscoll All-Star season will start on Sunday, December 9 and continue through Sunday, March 31 (18 weeks). The training schedule will feature 6 Power Skating sessions, 6 professionally run practices and 6 games. Cost will be $550 plus the cost of jerseys and socks (less than $100).
Beginning in the 2019-2020 season, the Driscoll All-Star teams will feature 30 ice sessions per season. 10 Power Skating and Skills sessions, 10 professionally run practices by the Driscoll staff and 10 games, including one tournament. Coaches for games will be drawn from the parents of the players that make the team and may be augmented by Driscoll Skating & Skills coaches as necessary. Expected cost will be $900 for the full season.
