The Hebron Academy girls varsity ice hockey team was established in 1999. Since its start, the team has competed widely in the NEPSAC against a number of the most competitive hockey programs in the Northeast. Hebron has a rink right on campus, neighboring the girls dormitory. The team skates six days a week and plays a competitive travel schedule including a holiday tournament in Newport, RI. In addition, the girls hockey team works with a strength and conditioning coach once or twice each week during the season to improve on foot-speed, explosiveness, power, and flexibility, and to minimize injury.
The girls hockey program focuses on building skill and team dynamics while pushing each player and the team to reach their highest potential. Each year the program produces a number of college-bound athletes who have gone on to play in the NCAA at schools such as Lake Forest, Trinity, Endicott, Salve Regina and the Naval Academy.
