League Breakdowns

Tier 1 / AAA

Our tier 1 / AAA teams play an independent schedule competing against the top teams in the Northeast.  They also consistently compete in showcases and tournaments out in the New England area specifically intended to provide exposure to prep-school coaches and scouts.

Tier 2 / AA

Our tier 2 / AA teams typically play in the WNYAHL hockey league located in Western New York.  This league is required for all tier 2 / AA state and national-bound teams as part of the qualification process for the state tournament.
