Re: North Shore Gils Programs

Islanders is probably the closest, if you are willing to travel a bit then Assabet Valley (Concord MA)and the East Coast Wizards (Bedford MA)are probably the two strongest girls programs in NE.

Re: North Shore Gils Programs

Limiting it to North/West: Wizards and Assabet in that order. Wizards have been especially strong over the last couple of years.

dad
What is the Best youth Girls Program in the Middleton Area?


club: wizards, assabett, islanders, vipers...
the wizards have a newer and decent (twin) rink but it is back roads to get there, if your daughter is a 2 or 3 they have many teams at most age groups so they offer more 'balanced' teams.
vipers are probably the closest, if travel time is more important.

town: andover, panthers/north andover, melrose, reading
north andover is as good but you have to drive right past the andover rink then go another 10 minutes.

Re: North Shore Gils Programs

Haha, yeah, that "backroad" known as I-95/128.

Re: North Shore Gils Programs

Have you ever been there? I'd love to see how you get to The Edge from Rt 128 without navigating the back roads of Bedford......you can't get there unless you fly into Hanscom.

You can't get there from here...

Re: North Shore Gils Programs

AV was once the only choice but is now a disaster. 19-20 skaters on U12 teams that are ruled by fear.

Wizards are the best/biggest/most successful at this point, but like all programs it depends on who the coach is.

Islanders are disorganized and driven by a quantity over quality $$$. It appears the girls are there to supplement the boys program and the soon to be no pay Jr team.

Vipers are solid but could/should be a great program given the geography. Some good teams, but the rink is a dump.

Figure out who the coach is, who runs skills and where your daughter will be the happiest . Don't worry about the logo.

Re: North Shore Gils Programs

Vipers U13 coach CH robbed a bunch of families this spring with his fake company HockeyConcepts. Buyer beware. 4 tournaments and skills. Everybody paid and got 2 tournaments and no skills. See you in court buddy!
