The Northwood School boys’ ice hockey program prides itself on development and exposure in working with each hockey player in giving student/athletes the necessary tools and coaching to reach their full potential.
Northwood fields two boys' ice hockey teams, the Junior Team and the Prep Team. Both teams play 40-50 games in a season with tournaments and games in the United States and Canada. Students are on the ice five to six days a week from the start of October until mid-March. Practices and home games for both teams are played at the Olympic Center in downtown Lake Placid.
Hockey players at Northwood School are on a twelve-month strength and conditioning program, which utilizes our fitness center on campus during the school year. Each player is also introduced to a comprehensive nutrition program for both dining on campus and traveling during the season. Students/athletes have the availability of a full-time athletic trainer and a strength and conditioning coach, to continue their development as individuals and hockey players.
Northwood's combination of a strong academic curriculum and an elite level hockey program offers the ideal prep school setting for an individual looking to develop as a person, student, and hockey player.
