The Hebron boys hockey program dates back to 1922 and enjoys a rich hockey tradition. The Lumberjacks compete against some of the top competitors in the New England Prep School Athletic Conference with a 33 game regular season schedule. Hebron entered into the Holt Hockey Conference this past season, which is comprised of Berwick Academy, Hebron, Kents Hill School, North Yarmouth Academy, Pingree School, Portsmouth Abbey, and Worcester Academy.
The coaching staff, which brings decades of playing and coaching experience, focuses on individual improvement, team accomplishment, and college placement for our student athletes. These goals are achieved by a group of student athletes who strive to compete at their highest level each day and commit to being a selfless part of the team and the larger Hebron community.
Coach O'Brien is entering his sixth season with the program and fourth as the head varsity hockey coach. During his time at the helm, Coach O'Brien has built the Hebron boys varsity hockey roster by recruiting team players with high character, amazing work ethic, and the humility to understand the opportunity in front of them of playing Prep School hockey in New England. The 2021-22 team compiled a 16-10-1 record, reaching the Holt Conference playoffs and falling just short of making it into the New England “Small School” tournament. Led by a talented group of seniors and post-graduates, this year's team looks to build upon that success by competing at the highest levels of prep school hockey.
Passionate hockey players from all types of backgrounds come together to enrich our style of play, while also meeting the demands of being a competitive student athlete. We are privileged to skate in Robinson Arena on campus, with its renovated interior and new locker room facility. In recent years, our alumni have gone on to compete at the NCAA Division I, II, and III levels.
