WELCOME to the Boston Jr Terriers. Thank you for your interest in joining Terrier Nation
Please don’t over-commit your son or daughter. This is a big commitment. We expect 100% commitment; all team members are expected to attend all practices, skills, and games. We expect this to be your primary team. Although games are an important part of the commitment, practices, and skills are the emphasis for the development of the players.
Includes league games, practices, skills, and goalie clinics. Your coaches will create the best possible environment for players to develop by creating a teaching atmosphere where players are exposed to defensive zone coverage, forechecking, backchecking, power play, penalty killing, and checking. We are committed to making our program competitive and fun.

JR TERRIERS SKILLS LED BY KEIF ORSINI , CHRIS CUNNINGHAM AND COACHES FROM THE CORE SERIES SKILLS TEAM
Core Series Skills was created to get away from gimmicks and fluff and design programs that focus on hard work, sweat, and commitment. Two of the area’s premier skill instructors, Keif Orsini (Former UMAINE player & current AHA u16 Head Coach) and coach Chris Cunningham (Former UMASS player & Current Terriers U18 Selects & Archbisop Williams Varsity- Head Coach) joins the core series team and has worked will players from mite to pros for many years.
Goalie clinics were designed and coached by Jp McKersie and his staff. All goalies receive goalie-only skills once a week during the season. JP also watches games at both arenas every weekend for feedback and assessment.
JR TERRIERS PHILOSOPHY
The Jr Terriers mission is to identify a player's needs, strengths, and weaknesses to develop an infinite growth mindset to never stop learning.
The Terriers are constantly tweaking the on-ice curriculum to ensure players are utilizing their strengths and developing impactful habits to take their games to the next level. We train players to problem solve, through experiential learning. Practices are focused on game-like situations to create a positive environment to promote the practice of the game transfer of skills. Training our players with this growth mindset allows us to condition not only the cognitive aspect of the game but also the fundamental physical skills within the context of the game.
Good luck and thank you for participating in the 2022/23 tryouts for the Boston JR TERRIERS!
