Peter is a LAX player. He decided to take up goal tending his Jr year in High School. He wasn't very good but he had 2 things that impressed me. WILL and CHARACTER ! ! !
This is what his father wrote
My son Peter had just taken up hockey. He chose to pick the most difficult position to play, goalie. He signed up to play for a league that had players a many skill levels combined on a loosely coached team. At the end of a tough game for Peter, Mr. Maris , an opposing coach , made it a point to speak with me and my son for over an hour after the game even though he had a long ride home . He offered a great deal of encouragement to my son. During this conversation many parents and players stopped to speak with him. The genuine show of affection towards Mr. Maris was impactful on me . I could tell in that first encounter that this was a man who loved hockey but loved to help develop character in young people even more.
Several weeks later, Mr. Maris heard through another opposing coach in the league my son was in , that my son was struggling mightily. He was not getting any help from the coaching staff of his Bataan team . The coach relayed to Mr. Maris that my son's coach actually pulled him for the entire last period of a game and played with an empty net! My son was devastated and embarrassed. He received no encouragement after the game from either the coaches or his "so called teammates." His enthusiasm afterwards to go to practices or future games was significantly affected .It hurt me deeply to see my son go through this, seemly alone, from people that should have been helping him improve.
A short while later, I received a call from Mr. Maris who said that he had heard what had happened and it made his heart sink. Mr. Maris offered my son a chance to play on a spring CHC club that was at his skill level to develop his game and earn ice time. He also assured me that he , the other coaches and the players that my son would play with , would work with him, support him and more importantly respected him as a person regardless of whatever athletic skill he was at. Mr. Maris was true to his word.
My son happily traveled a minimum of one hour for CHC practices and games. He always looked forward to going and felt he was getting a lot out of the experience both athletically and socially. Mr. Maris , his coaches and my son's teammates helped improved his skill and increased his friends ! CHC was there my son at a time that he needed mentors outside of his family.
As a parent, I was impressed in the level of communication of CHC. I always felt very well informed and impressed that these young players were expected to act as adults in confirming, not their parents , their participation in practices and acknowledging schedule changes - all excellent lessons for a young person. I also loved reading all the postings of successes and seeing many photos of the players from other tier teams in CHC family. As a parent this showed me that CHC is more than a hockey program , it's a community!!!
I feel confident in FULLY AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDING CHC for any level
player not only for developing hockey skills but more importantly developing life skills !!!

My son Matthew has been playing hockey for 9 years. He has always been driven to be a successful player, however, his drive has never been matched by a coach. That all changed this year when Matthew met George Maris. Matthew had interest in playing on the CHC hockey team, but George was honest and informed Matt that he may not be ready to compete. With that being said, George offered Matt an opportunity to practice with the team.
As Matt started to attend practices, George began to accent his strengths and develop his weaknesses. He provided Matt with drills to help him on and off the ice. Matt immediately gravitated to George's style and began to believe in himself as a hockey player. Prior to this connection, Matt was quite reserved and never communicated much with his coaches. However, that has changed as Matt participated all summer in the CHC games and looks forward to a Fall season. Matt loves that George pushed him to be the best. Not only is Matt developing into a solid hockey player. but George has helped mold him into a fine young man. For that we are truly grateful.
Thanks in advance
Devin has played the last 3 years for the CHC hockey organization and is now playing for Franklin HS MA.

Hope all is well.
First, I wanted to thank you for giving Devin a chance to play on your team. As I said before he really enjoyed playing under your tutelage. Having just two seasons of hockey experience he improved as the season went on and that’s a tribute to you and your staff. Playing with and against stiffer competition really helped with his development and equally important, his confidence. He also benefitted from your reinforcement of team work and dedication to the game.
All in all it was an awesome experience for our whole family. We have just begun practicing with the Franklin team and already see a benefit from this summer’s experience.
Thank you for taking Devin under your wing. I am hoping you will keep in touch and that we will get another opportunity to play with you next summer!
I met Brett and his parents at one of our local arenas. I saw Brett play and went and asked his father if he would have Brett play for our CHC team. He said "we are willing to try anything at this point because we are fed up with the politics in youth hockey".
Brett played 3 season with us and this is what his father wrote back in 2013.
