Building a hockey program from scratch is not easy. But Quincy College is giving it a try.
The school is launching a new men’s hockey club program this fall, and head coach Kyle Robertson, assistant coach Matt Gibbons and athletic director Jack Raymer joined host Stephanie Wood on the latest episode of the RinkWise podcast to talk about the team’s growth.
The Granite will play in the New England Independent Hockey Conference of the Collegiate Hockey Federation. Their home games will be played at Quincy Youth Arena.
The junior college is hoping to provide a cost-effective alternative to students who want to continue their hockey careers. “We can get you to where you want to go,” Raymer said of his pitch to prospective students.
