The Boston Urban Hockey Initiative’s SCORE Boston program provides inner-city youth with the opportunity to participate in the sport of hockey. The objectives of SCORE Boston are to use hockey programs as a platform to foster an environment for youth in which they can learn life skills that reflect the core values of our program: Sportsmanship, Character, Opportunity, Respect and Education.
This not-for-profit organization is geared for girls and boys between the ages of 6-14 and is staffed by a highly motivated team of committed volunteers and coordinators with a vast array of hockey and educational experience.
The program consists of on and off-ice instruction. The on-ice instruction teaches the basic and necessary skills associated with ice-skating and hockey. Each weekly session ends with a scrimmage game where the players utilize their skills. Adolescent participants have leadership opportunities on the ice and in the classroom in SCORE’s Jr. Coaches program.
