Hockey - Boys Varsity

The Berkshire Bears play one of the most competitive schedules in New England. A perennial New England Tournament participant, the members of our program pride themselves on being accountable, dedicated, and unselfish. This emphasis on teamwork provides the foundation for success, not only in hockey, but in the classroom and in life. We celebrate individual accomplishments within the context of the collective effort, and we provide a rigorous yet balanced daily regimen that insures skill development.

In December 2008, Berkshire moved into the new Jackman L. Stewart Athletic Center, a state-of-the-art facility featuring two full-size rinks, a spacious fitness center, an advanced athletic training suite, concessions and function rooms, and large well-appointed locker rooms.
