StinkySocks Hockey is very well run and organized. I have been playing StinkySocks for close to 2 years now and have only played one game where we only had one goalie, always plenty of skaters but never more then 10 to a side. Great league, great hockey!

I'm really thrilled to be in this league. I'm having a blast. Great job!

StinkySocks is a league for the players and is a great experience. There is no checking and in the novice leagues there are no slapshots. Making easier for people to get up the next morning and not worry there going to break something. Whether your a novice or a college star this league has it all. There are also great clinics and programs to teach you the game.

You guys are doing a great job. It’s awesome to be able to get a good skate in at a competitive level. Keep up the good work.

…our team had a great time… everyone got along real well. My buddy couldn’t say enough good things and he is definitely interested in participating in future events. Everyone in the locker room expressed an overwhelmingly positive view towards the SSH skates as well. I’m sure it’s a testament to both the level of organization you’ve provided via the web, but also the good nature of the core group of guys that you have built this thing around. Keep it up!

I started with SSH in spring’09. I had not played regularly in 19yrs. SSH’s players made it easy to start up again with no pressure. In the past 2 years SSH has grown wildly, but despite 4 or 5 times as many players, amazingly, SSH has some how maintained a friendly group with no jerks, and everybody just looking for a good skate and a good time.

I have played a little ice hockey on and off my whole life and was never able to progress.  This was mainly because it was pond hockey.  At 44 years of age I found StinkySocks online.  It was the first adult program I had ever found that also had skills classes.  I started the skills almost a year ago as a very weak D level player.  I could not take a slap shot or wrist shot without falling to the ice.  I feel I’m now a very strong D level player and I give 100% of the credit to the StinkySocks skills program.  The games are great but my playing would not have improved if I was not doing the skills program.  The skills program allowed me to actually work on skating with a trained eye watching and letting me know what I was doing correct and wrong.  As I have progressed I can focus on my weak areas and do more advanced skills to further my level of play.  There is no doubt in my mind that I would not have progressed if I was only playing in games and not doing skills.  Joe and Rich are both great instructors and push each participants for their advancement.  I highly recommend the skills program and have gotten two friends to start taking them with me.

Best hockey around Boston. Fun, clean, and good people.

I enjoyed the opportunity to get back into playing. I had been out of the game for quite a while. Everybody – players, managers and officials were concerned that I was OK. I liked the fact that SSH makes the effort to evaluate my skill level and place me in a group that I would fit into and enjoy playing with. I really like the overall attitude.

StinkySocks is perfect for those who wish to play consistent weekly hockey, but have a variable work schedule.
