The huddle


The Boys’ Ice Hockey Team enjoys one of the richest traditions of those secondary schools competing in the Division I of the New England Prep School Ice Hockey Association (NEPSIHA), one of the premier leagues in the country. The season typically begins in mid-November and concludes in early March at the New England Prep School Tournament. The team practices in the afternoons and is on the ice six days a week. Andover has proudly qualified for the New England Tournament Playoffs numerous times over its storied history. Andover hockey players have gone on to play in NCAA Division I, II, and III at schools such as Amherst, Assumption, Babson, Boston College, Bowdoin, Brockport, Brown, Colby, Conn College, Cornell, Cortland, Gustavus Adolphus, Hamilton, Harvard, Hobart, Middlebury, Nazareth, St. Anselm’s, Stonehill, Trinity, Tufts, UMaine, Williams, Wesleyan, and Yale, in leagues such as the NCDC, USHL, CCHL, BCHL, AJHL, EHL, AHL, NHL, NAHL and in the Olympic games.


The varsity schedule of 28-30 games includes healthy rivalries with Cushing, NMH, Kimball Union, Dexter, Pomfret, Loomis, St. Paul’s, and Exeter. Andover also competes against ISL rivals Tabor, Belmont Hill, Nobles, Milton, and Thayer on an annual basis. The team competes in the renowned Flood-Marr Tournament hosted by Milton and Nobles in mid-December. Our highly competitive schedule allows our student-athletes optimal exposure to college, junior, and NHL scouts.

Opened in February 2002 and later officially dedicated on June 8, 2002, the Ted Harrison Rink is the home of Andover varsity hockey. In addition to the 200' x 94' playing surface, the facility includes locker rooms for all four PA hockey teams and visiting squads, plus an athletic training room and a spacious lobby and viewing areas. Later opening in 2004, the Gurry Rink offers an NHL-sized surface. The entire facility is utilized year-round for Andover teams, hockey camps, town youth hockey, figure skating, and recreational skating. All players are able to pursue strength and conditioning programs through the academy’s Rosenau Fitness Center and its free weights, weight machines, cardiovascular and resistance equipment, Rapid Hands and Rapid Shot. The brand new Snyder Field House is adjacent to our hockey rinks. Players have access to three full-time athletic trainers for injury prevention and rehabilitation.
