The MaxPro Hockey Club Statement
The MaxPro Hockey Club (including the Boston Stars and the MaxPro Jets) youth hockey program is designed to maximize player potential through a funamental emphasis on technique and skill progression. We incorporate the traditional powerful and straight-ahead approach of American skating, as well as the high-speed and fluid maneuverability of the Russians. We also combine Russian-style team tactics with the more assertive style of the North American strategy.
Boston Stars Hockey’s primary emphasis is on the individual player’s development through the instruction of skating techniques, puck control, and game strategies. Our players are uniquely recognized for their high level of competitive play, and their skill and grace which have become hallmarks of Igor Hockey. More importantly, our players are taught the principles of good sportsmanship and fair play.
Our goal is to maximize each players individual ability so they can play at the high school, college, or professional level. Students that succeed in our program are dedicated, put in the extra time and effort skills development and are seeking opportunities beyond a traditional recreational hockey program.
Our Core Values
As we explained, students that succeed in our program are dedicated, put in the extra time and effort skills development and are seeking opportunities beyond a traditional recreational hockey program. To belong to our program, there are certain things that we also put a premium on in addition to a player’s ability.
Respect for Others – We expect all players, coaches and families in our program to treat one another with respect. As a small club we believe it is important to have good families and well-behaved players who conduct themselves appropriately.
Respect for The Game – We expect our teams to conduct themselves to the highest level of integrity and show respect for our opponents, their fans, and the referees.
Hard Work – The players who succeed in our program typically are the hardest workers. They see the biggest return and improve faster because they put the time and effort in it takes to succeed.
Academics First – We expect players to keep current with their academics and perform to their highest ability in the classroom.
