Play For Our Teams
The East Coast Militia is an elite spring and summer hockey organization providing elite athletes with a platform to test themselves against the best competition available while under the tutelage of hockey professionals. Our coaches include former and active players at the highest levels of the game that our players strive to reach, scouts, and coaches with experience at the Prep, Junior, and NCAA levels of play. As we are not a regional program, our players enjoy the opportunity to meet players from different areas that they otherwise may not have the opportunity to. Unlike most programs, our staff is available to help parents and players by providing feedback and advice well beyond the duration of a weekend spent with us. In the past, we are proud to have played a role in crucial decisions that our players and their families have been faced with, and we look forward to continuing to do the same. We are constantly working to provide the best possible experience for our players and their families, such as taking our players on NCAA Division 1 tours in Boston led by Militia alumni who are currently scholarship athletes at premier hockey universities in the United States.
The Militia alumni consist of over 200 NHL/NCAA D1 players.
