Atlantic Coast Hockey is a high-performance program that prides itself on professional coaching, excellent player development and maximum exposure opportunities.  Our objective is to prepare student-athletes both athletically and academically for the next level, with the ultimate objective for players to succeed on and off the ice.

Our location is beneficial for our student-athletes.  Due to the close proximity of many programs within Massachusetts, ACA will provide exposure to three major Division 1 Conferences: ECAC (Union, Harvard University, RPI), Atlantic Hockey League (Bentley University, AIC), Hockey East (Northeastern, BU, BC, U-Lowell, Merrimack). These alongside our New England area Prep Schools such as Berkshire School, Trinity Pawling, Albany Academy, Salisbury, Deerfield and Cushing, etc…  New England is arguably one of the best, if not, the best hockey markets in the United States.

See What Others Are Saying About Atlantic Coast Hockey Academy

Coming from a top program like MFF and transitioning to ACA has significantly boosted my confidence and development. The coaching staff at ACA believed in me from day one, supporting me through the college commitment process. The amount of games and training opportunities at ACA has truly enhanced my overall development & played a big role in making me the player I am today.

Brenden Sanchez, Member of 18u ACA Team

“It was a big decision to send our 15 year old son away to pursue his hockey passion. Living in south Florida the opportunities become more limited at this age. The Florida Alliance AAA program certainly built a solid foundation but it was time to move on. Not being a fan of a billet arrangement and not willing to spend the money on a prep school we narrowed our search to an academy model. After researching, visiting and playing for several of the various organizations, the decision to attend Atlantic Coast became clear. Our son had an amazing year. The coaches were awesome, campus was beautiful with plenty of things to do when the boys weren’t on the ice or studying. We were able to choose the right online school program that best suit our needs. With the help of the staff our son made the honor roll and maintained dicipline. On the ice. We saw a huge improvement in his skill and intensity. Practicing on and off the ice everyday and playing high level games every weekend is something we have always struggled to find in south Florida. The decision to go back for his second year was a no brainer!”
