Shamrock Mission

The Vermont Shamrocks bring together some of the most competitive hockey players from all across Vermont and neighboring states.  The goal is to provide a high level of hockey while promoting participation at the local level.  The emphasis is on skill development and teamwork by fostering a spirit of cooperation and unity, as well as individual self-growth.   We create a fun environment which focuses on important values such as sportsmanship, friendship, and love of the game.  The lesson at the end of the day is that succeeding is really more about how they play the game – win or lose.

16U 'A' WIN CRANBERRY CLASSIC

The 16U A club, playing in the upper 19U division at the Cranberry Classic on Cape Cod, went 3-0-1, surrendering only one goal, and won the Championship with a strong 5-1 win over the South Coast Panthers.  The team opened with an impressive 7-0 win over the CT Northern Lights, followed by a 0-0 tie with the Panthers and a 5-0 win over the host Cape Cod Waves.  Each game was tight going into the final stanza and the Rocks used it depth and teamwork to take the number one seed and bring the title back to Vermont.

14U Tourney Team Runner Up at Cranberry

The Rocks sent a 14U tourney team to the Cranberry Classic, and with stingy defensive play and timely scooring the team found its way to the semi-final where they beat the Mass Spitfires 1-0 with a power play goal with five minutes remaining to punch their ticket to the finals against the Tier I Boston Bandits just two hours later.  It was a tight 1-0 battle until the mid-third when the Bandits found the net again to extend the lead. The team played an impressive brand of hockey using nine skaters and a goalie wno played a smart and hardworking game through five tough games.

10/12/14U 2018 SPRING TEAM INFO

The Vermont Shamrocks will be operating Spring Teams for Girls at the following ages:
10U (2007-2008)
12U (2005-2006)
14U (2003-2004)
Historically the Rocks have had two teams at each level, generally by birth year.  Due to increasing popularity and numbers, the Rocks have created a third team at the 12U and 14U ages, depending on interest and ability.

Teams typically begin skating in April and most teams play through mid-June with 5-7 Sunday afternoon/early-evening practices and 2-3 weekend tournaments.  The Shamrocks support the multi-sport athlete and have created a schedule that creates the least amount of conflict possible with spring sports and generally avoids any mid-week practices and travel in the spring.  

The Shamrocks are a fully volunteer program, and fees are set to only cover practice ice and tournament costs.  Spring fees generally range from $180-$290 depending on number of and costs of specific tournaments for each team.
Team selection is based on tryouts, player evaluations over the year and coaches recommendations.  Open tryouts are held for each age group, typically in March around playoff dates, but the 2018 date has not yet been set.

Information will be posted here as schedules and dates are finalized.

The 16UAA Vermont Shamrocks finished 5-1 at USA Hockey Nationals in Troy Michigan, losing 3-1 in the National Championship game to a tough Alaska North Stars. 

The Shamrocks come home as New England Champions and with the USA Hockey silver medal. This medal is the Shamrock association's 4th USA Hockey National Championship medal; having won 16U gold in 2013, 16U bronze in 2015, and 19U gold in 2016.  

It was a great post season for a super group of student-athletes and coaches.

Great job 'Rocks!
