North Central Mass Youth Hockey - Sting Hockey
North Central Mass Youth Hockey (NCMYH) - Sting is a 100% volunteer run youth hockey organization. Our home rink is Gardner Veterans Arena, Gardner, MA.
All Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, & Board Members, are volunteers which keeps our tuition low and allows us to focus our resources towards clinics, more ice time and training equipment.
Sting Hockey guarantees that all players get to play ice hockey. No riding the bench, no cutting players, and no "Pay to Play" mentality.
No matter what your players skill level, we have a team for them to skate on.
The club also utilizes other rinks in the Central Massachusetts region such as Cushing Academy, Winchendon School, and Keene Ice.
NCMYH-Sting participates in the Valley Associate League(s) which provide levels of play from Single A to Elite divisions.
Sting Hockey offers a full range of on-ice programming from Learn to Skate/Learn to Hockey, Mite ADM, House Hockey, and our traditional Travel Hockey program. Our travel hockey program offers parents: U8 Mites, U10 Squirts, U12 PeeWee, U14 Bantams, & U16 Midgets levels.
This past year we fielded both Boys Midget Team(s) competing in the Valley Hockey League, and a Girls Midget team that competed in the Middlesex Yankee Hockey League.
We are also proud to offer a FREE Girls Grow Hockey program that offers our ladies an extra opportunity to skate with all-girl sessions weekly, and be coached by Female Coaches when available. The GGH program is open to ALL girls registered in any program with NCMYH-Sting.
When available, we also participate in yearly State Wide programs such as Boston Bruins Academy, Play Hockey For Free, and many of our teams participate in MA State Tournaments.
