Shamrocks Close the Book on 2012 Split/Tournament Season at USA Hockey Nationals Texas

We create a fun environment which focuses on important values such as sportsmanship, friendship, and love of the game.  The lesson at the end of the day is that succeeding is really more about how they play the game – win or lose.

Our season fees only include the costs of our tournament entry fees and ice time.  Our prices are as low as select hockey can get ... but the value of the program to our players has proven to be significant.
