Ice Hockey | Boys' Varsity B

Cushing Academy Boys' Varsity B Ice Hockey competes in a competitive schedule across New England and hosts the Rust Cup to cap the season.

Powered By Tradition, But Not Resting on our Laurels

Cushing Academy's Varsity B Boys' Hockey program has a rich tradition of successful player development. The team competes in a competitive schedule against other NEPSAC schools, local public and Catholic Varsity teams, as well as Midget programs across New England.

The program's daily focus on individual player development, on the ice, in the weight room, and in the classroom is the foundation of holistic success.
