Please Donate… Free Sled Hockey Crowdfunding Page Launched

Friday, January 13, 2017

The Boston Shamrocks Sled Hockey Program is a totally free program based out of the Allied Memorial Veterans Rink at 65 Elm Street in Everett, Massachusetts. It is Beantown’s home for competitive sled hockey. The Shamrocks Sled Hockey program is for both the experienced and novice sled hockey player. The Shamrocks Sled Hockey Team plays in the Northeast Sled Hockey League (NESHL). The Boston Shamrocks also hold free sled hockey sessions for those who would like to put their disabilities on ice, grab a sled and a couple of sticks and experience sled hockey for either their first time or their hundredth time. Parents, kids, teenagers and their family members with and without disabilities are also welcome to try out sled hockey for free!

As a member of the NESHL, the Shamrocks Sled Hockey Team is required to travel to many different states. The team also competes in tournaments that require extensive travel. It also requires the use of equipment specific to sled hockey. Sled hockey has a small variety of equipment suppliers to provide the sleds, sticks, and picks that are unique to sled hockey. To make all of this happen we ask for your support! Contributions allow the team to compete, travel and continue to provide the opportunity for athletes of all abilities to find their strength through hockey!

Shamrocks Bring Sled Hockey To Fenway Park

Monday, January 16, 2017

For what maybe the first time in park history, sled hockey was played this past Sunday at Fenway Park when the Boston Shamrocks Sled Hockey Team played a Green/White intersquad game during the 2017 edition of Frozen Fenway in front of a great crowd of parents, siblings and friends.

According to head coach Nick McCommings, "All [the] Shamrocks played a great game! It was very exciting to see [everyone] applying what [they] have learned and practiced over the past many months. [They] impressed a great many people who have never seen sled hockey played before. The skating was fast paced, passing was impressive and anticipation is getting much better."

Boston Shamrocks forward Martina Maskova to play for Czech Republic Women's National Team

The Czechs have long been advocates of their men coming to North America to improve their draft positioning or to learn the “NHL game” by playing junior hockey. Now, the Czech women have taken a similar approach and are using evolving hockey academies to attend school, learn English, and, most importantly, become better hockey players.

Boston Shamrocks forward Martina Maskova (Teplice, Czech Republic) will play for her home Czech Republic Women's National Team in the upcoming 2017 International Ice Hockey Federation Women's World Championship being held at the USA Hockey Arena in the Detroit suburb of Plymouth, Michigan from March 31st through April 7th. This sanctioned IIHF event features the world's top eight women's national hockey teams from Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States.

Maskova and the Czech Republic Women's National Team will also compete in the Olympic Qualification Tournament being held February 9-12, 2017 in Arosa, Switzerland. If successful the Czech Republic Women's National Team will qualify for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, Korea.

Before being selected for the 2016-17 women's team, Maskova wore her country's colors for the past three season as a member of the Czech Women's National Under-18 Ice Hockey Team. last season Maskova was named captain of her home country's National U18 Team that competed in the 2016 Women's World Junior Championships held at the Meridian Centre in St. Catharines, Ontario.
