Five Hole Hockey was founded in 2006 in order to help players further themselves on and off the ice. Our organization draws on the various extensive personal, hockey and business experience of its staff to provide players, parents, coaches, and scouts with high quality and professional services. We have seen first hand all of the benefits (both on & off the ice) that the game of hockey can provide and we are passionate about helping today's players maximize their potential!
Since 2006, our mission has stayed the same, to help aspiring hockey players find ways to advance themselves both on the ice and in life. We are proud to see our former players having gone on to reach every level of Junior, U.S. College and Professional hockey, including the NHL!.
