Billet Families Needed!

Is your family community oriented?  Is your family Sports oriented? Do you want to help teenage Student Athletes chase their dreams?  If you answered yes to all three questions you would love to be a Billet (host) family for our Student Athletes.  We are currently looking for families to host both female and male Student Athletes.  If you are interested please contact Rebecca Howell at!

Welcome to the staff Freddie Beaubien

Freddie comes to us from Colorado Springs, Colorado and will be the Head Coach of the Varsity team and will also work with our goalies. Freddie began his playing career in Lauzon, Quebec, Canada.  He was drafted in the first round of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) in 1992.  During his successful tenure for the St-Hyacinthe Laser of the QMJHL, Freddie was drafted in the 5th round (105th overall) in the 1993 draft by the Los Angeles Kings of the NHL.  After a very successful career playing in various professional leagues for 11 years, including teams in all over North America and Europe, Freddie caught the coaching bug and has been coaching ever since. 

Freddie has worked for several goalie camps and has worked with Francois Allaire, Vladislav Tretriak, and has worked with goalies such as, Patrick Roy, Roberto Luongo and Jose Theodore.  Freddie has also been a head coach for many youth hockey teams from all age groups including AAA and AA teams.  Freddie volunteers with USA Hockey and helps evaluate goalies and players at the state and district level camps.

Congrats to our 2017 graduates!!
