The Vipers were founded in 2013 to provide our kids the opportunity to play highly competitive hockey across MA, CT, and NY with the objective of preparing them for their HS seasons and beyond. We are a player and family-focused not-for-profit organization committed to competitive hockey, strong professional coaching, the development of each player and transparency to our members. Our teams are run as financial collaboratives and we divide expenses equally among all players. The Vipers are proud members of the Premier Hockey League of New England (PHLNE). We complement our PHLNE league games with a strong independent schedule.
The 2024 Vipers tryout schedule is listed below. The cost of the tryout is $70 plus $20 for a new Vipers Practice jersey. The $20 for the jersey is fully refundable (in cash) at the time the jersey is returned after the player's last tryout, or the player can keep the jersey with no refund.

The Vipers pride ourselves on high quality, professional coaching. The growth of our organization has provided additional opportunities to join our staff for 2024 fall split-season. We have openings for Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches for our Fall Split Season teams. Our head coaches will have extensive coaching experience at the HS, junior and/or college levels. Assistant Coaches will have previous coaching experience or will have high-level playing experience beyond HS. Please contact Jim Watkins at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Vipers 14U Winter team will play December through February in the Premiere Division of the PHLNE. Due to HS commitments of some of our fall 14U players, we have openings for 2009 or 2010 birth year players on the roster for the winter team. The winter team will play approximately 13-14 games and will practice a handful of times during the winter season. The season will start Saturday December 9. The cost for the winter season is $300.
The winter team is an excellent chance for new players to get to know the Vipers. We will hold two open practices for interested players on Sunday November 26 and Sunday December 3 at 5:30 at Fitzpatrick. There is no charge for the skates, but the players will need to provide their USA Hockey Numbers and sign a waiver. Please use the link labelled 2023 Player USA Hockey Number Collector below. Questions or requests for more information can be sent to email@example.com. We look forward to meeting your player.

We'll see you in March for tryouts, followed by the Vipers Cup!
Congratulations to Coach Pfau, Coach Munster and the 15U boys for going undefeated in league play and capturing the PHLNE league championship. Well done!
