The Millbrook varsity hockey program plays an extremely competitive 32-game schedule in the New England Prep School Ice Hockey Association. The team plays in three tournaments throughout the year: The Brooks School Tournament, The Belmont Hill-Nichols Tournament, and the Empire Cup (co-hosted with Trinity-Pawling).
In our recruiting process we seek out student athletes who are serious about becoming part of a community where they will be more than simply hockey players. Being a member of the Millbrook community means pushing oneself in the classroom, being a leader in the community, and carrying oneself with dignity while treating others with respect.
The Millbrook hockey mission statement:
1) To challenge each one of our student athletes to go beyond their comfort zone in order to reach their full potential both as an athlete and as a person.
2) To develop each player’s character and to give each player the tools, both on and off the ice, to be successful in college and beyond.
3) To emphasize skill development and to deepen each player’s knowledge of the game.
4)To help prepare each of our student athletes to play at the college level, whether it be at the Division I or the Division III level.
