Since 2006, our organization has helped talented amateur hockey players develop their skill sets and hockey sense as well as gain valuable exposure to higher levels of the game. During that time, we have seen hundreds of our players take their game to levels beyond youth hockey - junior hockey, college hockey, and pro hockey. Team Five Hole Hockey builds off that experience by offering youth players a unique opportunity to continue their development process in a setting that mirrors what they will experience in the junior hockey world and beyond.
Team Five Hole offers talented, driven, aspiring players the opportunity to play and be coached at the AAA level in the spring and summer. Team 5 Hole Hockey is a development track for players: an opportunity to learn from new coaches, an opportunity to learn from new teammates, and opportunity to learn how to think the game and apply their skills in new ways and an opportunity to showcase their skills in an effort to expand their hockey horizons. It starts with professional coaching, progresses to development through high intensity training and high level competition while focusing on how to play the game ultimately culminating with opportunities that include exposure to higher levels of the game. We not only cultivate player skills and hockey sense, more importantly, we teach how to apply it in a team-first environment. Additionally, all of our coaches actively provide education and guidance for players and their families on pursuing higher level opportunities in the sport.
Our goal is to provide players with a top notch development opportunity to help each player maximize their potential and ultimately have the opportunity to pursue playing at high levels beyond youth hockey. We strive to help each player to improve from the start of mini-camp to the end of the last tournament as well as from one year to the next. Each team will operate with our core values in mind:
Development We will focus on the development of our players in a team-first environment with their long-term best interests in mind. Areas of emphasis include: hockey sense, and development of transferable skills.
Commitment We will commit maximum effort on and off the ice to pursue our goals both athletically and academically. We will actively advocate on behalf of our players to help them advance when the time is right.
Character We will represent ourselves, our families, and our program with integrity on and off the ice at all times and without exception. We will be respectful of our teammates, coaches, opponents, officials, and parents and we will be coach-able.
The Team Five Hole Hockey Program is nation-wide in scope. We actively recruit players into the program to supplement our core. Players come to the program from a variety of states (currently 15+) with a variety of backgrounds. Recruiting efforts focus on the upside potential and character of a player. We are not interested in where you’ve played or what you’ve won. We are interested in who you are, what your compete level is, and where you are going. Team Five Hole Hockey trains both in the Midwest and in the Northeast in order to accommodate our player base. We will compete in high quality events in a variety of locations in both the U.S. and Canada.
