Youth Hockey Testimonials


“I have had the pleasure of attending two events hosted by the Worcester Sharks – one was a pre-game in which my 12 and Under Girls Hockey team participated in, and the other a gathering for Worcester Pee Wee Alumni to honor an old friend, Bob Skinner.  Both were different and memorable experiences!  The Sharks staff was outstanding and professional hosts in every way.  I strongly recommend the Worcester Sharks organization to anyone planning an upcoming event.”

“Working with the Sharks has been an excellent experience for our youth hockey organization. The 'Skate with the Sharks' that we had in January was a huge hit for with the kids. The players did a great job.  Some of our teams also participated in the pre game skates. The kids had a blast.  Many of our families also took advantage of the very reasonable ticket prices and attended a game. More fun at a great price.  We look forward to working with the Sharks in the upcoming season and wish them continued success on the ice.”

“During the 2006-07 season the Shrewsbury Youth Hockey Association (SYHA) Squirt 3 team invited the SYHA Squirt 2 team to play a hockey game against them before the Sharks took to the ice during a home game. The kids had a great time playing on the Sharks ice. We also had set up a food buffet for both teams and their family's and then stayed and enjoyed watching the Sharks play their game. Because both teams sold so many tickets to the Sharks game they were able to each have a Sharks player join them at one of their hockey practices. We were able to have both teams practice at the same time which allowed us to have both players come at the same time. Both teams were excited to have Riley Armstrong and Lukas Kasper join them at practice. The Sharks players ran drills with them and the players were able to ask lots of questions. I am not sure who had more fun the Sharks players or the Shrewsbury teams! What a wonderful organization the Worcester Sharks have to be able to include the youth hockey teams from the area and open up opportunities for them to meet and learn from such outstanding hockey players!”

“I have been involved in hockey all of my life - including involvement with the previous Professional Hockey Team in Worcester and the Worcester Sharks are a remarkable organization.  Their commitment to the children of the community is refreshing and consistent with the commitment of the Midstate Junior Sharks.   The youth hockey programs the Worcester Sharks run are affordable, fun and a great experience for the family and players.  All of the families involved with the Midstate Junior Sharks had a great time this past season participating in the Youth Hockey programs.”

“The Worcester Sharks are a first class organization. It is very noticeable that the Sharks staff and players make a huge effort to work with all types of organizations in the greater Worcester area. Whether it was pre-game ice events at the DCU Center, a skate with the Sharks players at the Auburn rink or a performance by the Charlton Middle School Stage Band for the crowd at the intermission of a game, the Sharks made things exciting and fun for those involved. For all of these kids it was a positive experience that they will remember for ever. Twenty years from now they will be saying ‘Remember the great time we had at the DCU Center with the Worcester Sharks’. This is what the Sharks are all about.
Go Sharks!!!”
