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.

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.

Shamrocks Take Silver at National Championships

2017 New England Champions 16UAA Shamrocks














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!
