Junior Prep Hockey

Middlesex Black Bears Junior/Prep Hockey, a National Junior Development Program

Jr Hockey October 2013 Jay Cropped


  • Our program places an extremely high value on the “student” portion of the “student-athlete.”  Our two major academic goals of the National Junior Development Program are to prepare student-athletes for the college admissions process as well as for college life.
  • The Middlesex Black Bears is for those student-athletes, and their families, that want to attend smaller prestigious academic schools where they can obtain an elite education, enjoy a great college experience, and play top tier hockey.
  • Our Junior Prep Hockey program is designed to be a hybrid of the best parts of the Prep and the Junior hockey experiences for the mature and focused student-athlete.
  • Our coaching staff has considerable experience in both the Prep School world as well as the NESCAC and Ivy Leagues as players, coaches, students, teachers, and college advisers – our experience includes schools such as Shattuck St. Mary’s School (Minnesota), Governor’s Academy, Berkshire School, Brooks School, Colby College, Hamilton College, and Harvard University.

  • The Middlesex Black Bears are for serious student-athletes that want and need an extra year to improve their hockey skills, strength, academic intelligence, and maturity.
