Welcome to the online home of the 2008 Westchester Express Hockey Program. The Express 2008 birth year program includes two teams at the AAA Elite and AAA Selects level. The Express are a nationally ranked Tier I AAA program that competes in highly competitive leagues
and tournaments throughout the United States and Canada.
Our program has four main principles. First, we're relentlessly focused on developing hockey IQ. Our teams are taught to move with pace, apply pressure and play in attack mode. We believe that "Will" beats "Skill." Next, we want kids to be kids not mini-professionals. Third, we're not obsessed with team rankings. We will play anyone anywhere but our mission is to develop hardworking players prepared for the rigors 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 our 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 have played for 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.
