Canton Dog Devo Program
The Dog Development Program is the Boston Jr. Terriers' own in-house introductory league for beginner hockey players. It is NOT a learn-to-play program...please see our Canton Learn to Play tab for further information on that. It is NOT a travel development program...please see our Canton Fed Futures tab for further information on that.
No tryout is necessary for this program, however, all players in our Dog Development Program should have completed our Learn to Play programs before participating. The program consists of weekly skills on Saturdays from 10:00-10:50 am in Canton and weekly cross-ice games on Sunday in Canton and/or Rockland in conjunction with our Bavis Dog Development Program. We will also introduce these players to full ice gameplay. In creating teams, we will attempt to balance the players based upon age, ability as well as hometowns for commuting purposes.
The 2022-2023 program will be broken up into a Fall and Winter Sessions as outlined below:
(1) Fall Session: 11 Weeks -- September 10 - November 20
*games begin September 18
(2) Winter Session: 11 Weeks -- December 3 - February 26 (No skates 12/24, 12/25, 12/31, 1/1)
*games begin December 11
This combination of weekly skills complimented by cross-ice games allows player to maximize their repetitions and puck touches to quickly support the growth and development of the individual player before entering the highly competitive full season teams that we offer as part of the Eastern Hockey Federation. This program is open to 2015, 2016 and 2017 birth years.
*For those who are interested in an additional hour of skills to supplement this program, Dog Devo players will have the option to register for our Learn to Play program which will take place prior to the scheduled Saturday sessions. Please see our Canton Learn to Play tab for further details and registration information.
* Cost is $575 for each 11-week session program.
* All hockey equipment is required.
* Program jersey is provided.
**NOTE: Registration for our Fall session will close on September 5th, 2022.
