Welcome to the online home of the 2008 Westchester Express 11U pee wee hockey club. The Express are a nationally ranked
Tier I AAA program that competes across the North East and in select tournaments throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Our program has four main principles. First, we;re relentless about developing high hockey IQ. Our teams are taught to move with pace, apply relentless pressure and play in attack mode. We believe that "Will" beats "Skill." Next, we believe kids are kids not mini-professionals. Third, we're not obsessed with team rankings. We will play anyone but our mission is to develop blue-collar hardworking players prepared for the rigor of prep, junior and collegiate hockey. Lastly, transparency. We operate in the most open way that communicates our philosophy and where a child fits at his/her stage of development in the program.
The Express have three decades of success launching the careers of hundreds of players. Express NHL alumni currently play for the Nashville Predators, Chicago Blackhawks, Carolina Hurricanes and Columbus Blue Jackets and with the Philadelphia Flyers, Ottawa Senators, Tampa Bay Lightning, Colorado Avalanche and San Jose Sharks. Many have played junior hockey, at prep schools including Shattuck-St. Mary's in Minnesota, Millbrook Prep, Taft and Tabor Academy and on NCAA Division I and III programs including Union College, Brown University and the
United States Military Academy at West Point among many others.
