What is the Southeast HS Festival?
Hockey Night in Boston will hold our first annual Southeast H.S. Festival from June 1st to June 3rd at the The Bog (Kingston, MA) for qualified varsity Massachusetts & Rhode Island players entering their Junior, Senior or PG year in the Fall of 2018. This weekend festival provides the opportunity for players in the South Shore, Cape, and Rhode Island region to compete against Prep and High School talent and get exposure to Prep and Junior coaches, and of course, play some summer hockey!
This festival will give players entering their JR, SR, or PG year the opportunity to be chosen to play in the historic 44th Annual HNIB Boys Major Summer Showcase which will be held at the Haverhill Valley Forum from July 25th – July 29th, 2018.
HNIB will be pre-selecting players prior to the Festival to make up the core of several Major teams. HNIB will then select players from this Festival to complete those rosters, as well as compliment other rosters in the Boys Major Showcase.
