PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY

Better Every Day – At Williston we challenge our players to better themselves in the classroom, on the ice, and in the community each and every day. We believe that when you commit yourself to this ideal, your time spent at Williston can be transformative and will shape your future.

COMPETITIVENESS OF SCHEDULE

Williston plays one of the most challenging schedules in all of Prep School Hockey. Typically, we will play 2/3 of our schedule against teams that are playoff bound. In 2017-18 Williston earned the #4 seed in the Large School Playoffs. Williston also competes in two highly selective holiday tournaments each year: The St. Sebastian’s Holiday Tournament and the Nobles/St. Sebastian’s New Year Showcase.
