2017 Stars

Team News


And just like that...

...the fast and furious 2024 Spring season comes to an end! The kids capped off their season with a fun Skills Showcase: they raced head-to-head, lit up the radar gun with their hardest shots, tested their passing and shooting accuracy, and showed off their silky-smooth shootout moves! The hungry little Stars then topped off with a pizza party once they finished on the ice.

That is a wrap on a successful first season for the 2017 NS Stars! Thank you to all of the coaches, volunteers, parents, family, and friends for the support and for creating a fantastic experience for these kids!
