Holderness Hockey dates back to the early 1900’s and the school has always embraced the game the way it is supposed to be played: outdoors in the elements with a focus on toughness, grit, speed, and enthusiasm. We compete in the Lakes Region conference of the New England Prep School Athletic Conference and play a 30-35 game schedule against some of the top competitors in New England. Holderness plays in a new open-air arena, which was constructed in 2015 and prepares for competition in a newly renovated training facility and locker room. Our season usually stretches from mid-November until the first of March.
With a strong passion for keeping hockey outdoors in the beauty, serenity, and vigor of a cold New England winter, and with a keen sense of the importance of work ethic, perseverance, and the joys of the competitive spirit, Holderness hockey players leave with a true sense of what the game was created for. Recent alumni have played at NCAA Division I institutions such as St. Lawrence, UNH, Clarkson, Brown, UVM, Colgate, Holy Cross, Niagara, and Army.
