-John Christopher

"Come next Spring, if you, as a parent, are looking to solidify your daughter or son’s hockey experience, look no further than Twice As Strong (TAS). Not connected to any particular program, school or having a special agenda, Mike and the TAS Coaches deliver an experience that is missing with most club and town teams. Besides sharpening your child’s skating and stick skills, sportsmanship, respect and principle are integral to that TAS Experience!"

-Jimmy Madeja


"TAS is a solid program focused on building core hockey skills, both physical and mental. Skating, passing, shooting, of course, but also the bigger picture of what is happening all over the ice so that players make better decisions. Two thumbs up!"

-Kerry Beausoleil

"The boys all had such a great time with TAS this summer, grateful to have had the opportunity to see some ice during the pandemic. Thank you for using all the protocols recommended by the state so these kids could get back on the ice!"

-Jennifer Caley


"Twice As Strong Hockey is an excellent hockey program! My son has participated in this program for a few years now, and my daughter decided to join for the first time this year. Although there were no games this season due to the Covid restrictions, it was so valuable to have quality coaching and the chance to work on their skills in shooting, stick handling and skating as well as get some socialization. The co-ed aspect was great, and all the players were really supportive of each other. I would highly recommend TAS, and look forward to another season with them again next year!"

-Tami White

"This program was great for my son's skills, team building and socialization. I highly recommend all that are part of this organization."

-Mark Lawhorne

"Such an awesome program, well managed and coached with unusual civility mixed with seriously strong expectations of each player trying their best and working as a team. Love this program."

-Jamy Buchanan Madeja

"My son played for Twice As Strong Spring League - It was a great experience - Coaches were excellent and kids were awesome. Thank you we will be skating with you again."

-MaryBeth Dirocco-Tufts 

"Twice As Strong Hockey provides a good balance of practice, training, team building and games. It has experienced and dedicated coaching staff who can help your children extend their hockey experiences through the spring. If you are looking for spring hockey, look no further. Twice As Strong is the spring hockey at its best!"

-Yuan Cheng

"This season was a great learning experience for my son both on and off the ice. Great program run by very professional and experienced staff. Thank you so much for helping him grow twice as strong!"

-Kimberli Lynch-Bowler

"You can't find a better spring hockey program. The weekly practices on full ice too!) allow the players to get to know each other and better work together as a team.  Having an experienced high school level coach run the same kinds of practices/drills he runs for his high school teams will prepare our Bantam players for the high school level.  (Wish our Pee Wee player could've had the same experience). Winning the Valley League Spring League championship was icing on the cake! We can't wait for next Spring!" 

-Vicky and Joe Halter

"Twice as Strong was a fantastic experience for my son - the overall program, the coaches and the team. The level of instruction and encouragement helped him focus on skills where he needed improvement while still building on his strengths.
It was amazing to see the group of boys come together and play as a team of equals , regardless of experience or skill level.
That's the philosophy taught in this program..."

-Debbie Chavis 

​“We have two boys that have played a combined three seasons of Twice as Strong spring hockey. The program is always very well organized and managed. The coaching and team building have exceeded our expectations.  Respect for the game – your teammates, coaches and the opposition, strong work ethic, improvement of skills and hockey IQ are core to the program.  After each Twice as Strong season our boys have been better prepared to make a strong positive impact on their full time teams.”
