New Scotland Schooners
The New Scotland Schooners spring/summer program is based out of the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM). We do not compete at every age level, and we do not have multiple tiers/teams at each age group. Currently, we are concentrating on the 2010-born (exceptional 2011's) and 2008-born (exceptional 2009's) players. Our focus is to gather the best players at the age group and compete against the best competition in the Maritimes and North America.
At the completion of the spring season (May), the Schooners will transition into a summer team that will compete nationally against the best players in North America. Separate tryouts will occur for placement on the summer team.
Our goal is to develop - additionally - our players throughout the course of the minor hockey season. We believe that development is paramount, and focusing on a limited amount of players/teams is the best way to facilitate our goals.
