Wolves Billeting Program

By Staff Reports 04/18/2024, 3:45pm EDT


"Billeting" is a hockey tradition and is especially important at the junior level of hockey. This concept involves local host families providing a home to out-of-state or out-of-country players for the hockey season. The billet program also allows these young men to complete their high school educations, take college preparatory classes, obtain part-time employment and/or volunteer in the local community while pursuing the next step in their hockey careers. 

For more information, email Tammy McKenzie below.


Tammy McKenzie of Gilford, NH is a lifelong hockey enthusiast, and has had several billets live with her and her family since the 2018 season.   She has a passion for hockey that she shares with her family (husband John and children Heather and Aidan).  She is actively involved with youth sports at all levels,  

”The Wolves Family is extremely excited to add Tammy McKenzie to our core of support staff.  Our boys were extremely well taken care of by her family every season she has hosted, and we look forward to her help and guidance in finding all of our new Wolves homes for next season as they develop and enhance their hockey careers while living in the Lakes Region.” - Wolves GM Andrew Trimble

Wolves Learn to Play a Huge Success

By Staff Reports 04/11/2024, 5:30am EDT

The New England Wolves recently completed a Free Learn To Play Hockey Program at Merrill Fay Arena. The program was a huge success, signing up over 30 kids ages 4 to 12. The program taught many skills including skating, edge work, shooting, passing and stick handling. Obstacle courses and scrimmages were their favorites! Sessions were twice a week, Sunday morning and Monday afternoon. USA Hockey Registration was required. Equipment package was made available from Capital Sports and used equipment was provided free to any child who needed it! Many children came to us with no prior skating experience, but soon with the structure provided by New England Wolves Staff and volunteers, made incredible progress! Almost all of the skaters attended  tryouts for the New England Wolves Youth Hockey Program and were placed on teams for the following season. The New England Wolves will be taking over all youth hockey operations from Lakes Region Youth Hockey at Merrill Fay Arena for the upcoming 24-25 hockey season. The New England Wolves are committed to the long term athletic development of its members by providing a safe, friendly environment, USA Hockey Credentialed Coaches, and team building! Due to the huge success of the Free Learn To Play Hockey Program the New England Wolves will be offering this again. Check out the New England Wolves website and videos on You-Tube and Instagram for more information and registration. We will be looking to sign up 60 kids this time around so sign up and come on down for a great experience. Your children will love it!!!
