Hockey @ SC

The hockey tradition at Stanstead College goes back to the very early days of the sport. Today, Stanstead hockey serves as a gateway for young boys and girls looking to improve their skills, academic success and opportunities for playing beyond high school. At Stanstead College, we take hockey seriously.
"Arriving at Stanstead I knew it was the right fit for me as a person and as a hockey player. I was pushed academically, developed study habits and became a more independent person."
