2020-21 Captains: Neve Ley '21, Emily Pollis '21, Madelyn Son '21, and Cassidy Thibodeau '21
The girls varsity ice hockey program takes great pride in our student-athletes and their commitment to the Groton community. We value the importance of time spent in the classroom, the relationships and bonds formed on and off the ice, and the competitive atmosphere we create each day that we’re on the ice together. Groton plays in one of the best leagues in New England, the Independent School League (ISL), composed of sixteen teams. The goal of the coaching staff is to prepare and help develop all of our players to compete at the highest level. We also strive to provide players with valuable life lessons that they will take with them once they leave the Circle.
The Zebras start their preseason in mid-November and play nearly twenty-five league games and a holiday tournament, while practicing four to five times a week. The season ends in early March. We’re quite fortunate to have two ice rinks on campus—allowing all Groton hockey teams to practice before dinner and weeknight study halls. With a top-notch athletic center and a strength-and-conditioning coach, players spend two afternoons a week during the season in the weight room or working on their speed/agility.
The coaching staff welcomes any prospective students and their families to visit our campus for a tour and interview, to meet current players, to catch a game or practice, and to chat with Head Coach Tim LeRoy (email@example.com, 978-448-7698). Please do not hesitate to contact Coach LeRoy if you have any questions about Groton or the hockey program. We look forward to welcoming you to the Circle very soon!
