The name “Stanstead College” has become synonymous with hockey excellence. Over the past decade, the school has developed one of the finest hockey programs in Eastern Canada, with top-notch training and an intensive schedule against highly competitive prep teams in New England and beyond. Over the years, Spartan alumni have gone on to play elite junior and college hockey and attend quality North American universities.

The Varsity Boys Spartans have developed a reputation as a smart, fast-skating team that can hold its own against the toughest competitors.  More importantly, the program has turned out young men with the maturity, leadership skills and perseverance to succeed.

In 2013-14, the Spartans had a 500 record of 23-23-6-2, through a gruelling 54-gave schedule. Season highlights included the opportunity to play at Providence College, Merrimack College, and Dartmouth College, as well as compete against prestigious programs such as Northwood School, Kimball Union Academy and Cushing Academy. Furthermore, the chance to play in the Northwood School and Tabor Academy Tournaments as well as making it to the finals of our very own Stanstead Invitational were all key moments.

Since being reintroduced in 2002, varsity girls hockey at Stanstead College has steadily grown in quality and reputation. With actively recruited scholar-athletes and a full schedule that includes a solid core of games against New England, Midwest and Canadian prep schools, today’s Girls Hockey Spartans are exciting, competitive and definitely a team to watch.

In 2013-14,  the girls went 34-13-6. The were winners of the Northwood Invitational, second at the NAHA Tournament, third in the Philips Exeter Tournament and divisional champs in the NAPHA league

Stanstead College also offers a junior varsity boys andbantam boys programs made up of younger aged boys who play a local high school and tournament-based schedule.

All three hockey teams at Stanstead College benefit from a schedule that begins in late October and finishes in the middle of March. During the season, teams practice 3-5 times per week with 3-4 off-ice sessions as well. Our teams are proud to boast wonderful new state-of-the-art locker rooms in one of the finest new ice hockey facilities in Canada, the Pat Burns Arena.
