Welcome to Hockey Academy of New England!

About Hockey Academy of New England:

At Hockey Academy of New England, we have an over-arching goal to provide a safe, fun, and exciting youth hockey program that grows the sport of ice hockey in New England and its surrounding communities. We'll meet that goal by:

Continuous Skills Development Across All Age Groups - all practices, from learn to skate & learn to play to 18U, are developed by our Hockey Director, Coach Pijus "P" Rulevicius and led by a single coaching staff. Practice plans emphasize common skills-based elements across all age groups, with added focus on complexity and game strategy in the upper age groups. This will allow all Hockey Academy of New England players to follow a consistent development path from one age group to the next, allowing more time to focus on skills instead of adjusting to a new coach's system. At Hockey Academy of New England, we follow the USA Hockey American Development Model (ADM) .

Our Coaching Staff led by Hockey Director - Coach "P" Pijus Rulevičius, a former NAHL, USHL, NCHA, SPHL and Lithuanian National Team player, the Hockey Academy of New England coaching staff spans age groups to ensure that a common message is delivered to all players in the Academy providing consistency and continuity in their development. Coach P develops the practices for the coaching staff to implement at all age groups, utilizing his professional hockey experiences to emphasize skills-based development.

Positive Learning Environment - youth sports often bring out the competitiveness in players, coaches, and parents. At Hockey Academy of New England, we strive to create a positive environment for our players, one that allows them to compete and push themselves while building up the confidence necessary to succeed both on and off the ice. Our coaching staff is dedicated to helping our players reach their potential while promoting a positive learning environment. 


Hockey Academy of New England took on its current form in 2019.  Drawing on the expertise of former professional hockey players, Hockey Academy of New England is uniquely positioned to offer a one-of-a-kind youth hockey experience that your child will not only love, but will help them develop their hockey skills. 


Hockey Director - Coach "P" Pijus Rulevičius

Coach "P" Pijus Rulevičius joined Hockey Academy of New England after finishing his professional hockey career in 2019. Having played at some of the highest levels of professional hockey, including the USHL, NCHA, SPHL, and as a Lithuanian National team player, Coach P brings a new perspective to Houston-area hockey. With unique insights into the skills and techniques necessary to be successful as an ice hockey player, Coach P strives to challenge each and every one of his players.  "It took me years to find the right coach to teach me the things I needed to elevate my game," Coach P says. "My goal as Hockey Director with this program is provide those details to our coaching staff to implement at an earlier age so these kids can focus on the rest of the fundamentals - skating, passing, awareness."

Coach P also can grow a pretty sweet beard, has an affinity for anything hockey, and can certainly throw them fists (https://youtu.be/uQwMCbCkaNc). (Note: the "Throwing Fists" practice is only for 18U and up).
