What Sets Us Apart

Be A Star

Culture needs to be re-established every single day.

What does it mean to be a Fox Cities Stars Girls Hockey player? For starters it's BELIEF. The belief that you can, your teammates can, and anyone can be all the things that go into being a "Star."

Together, we sacrifice. That makes you a Star.

We work hard to show off our "grit n' grind."

We are determined to be energetic and enthusiastic at all times for the betterment of the Stars Program.

We hold our FAMILY accountable no matter how tough, awkward, or easy it may be.

We are selfless to the point that we EARN your RESPECT. Whether that's being a good sportsman, cleaning the rink, or positively influencing the youth in our community.

It starts with BELIEF that we can do all the things that go into being a Star.

"Culture Over Talent"

We put extreme emphasis on how we treat each other, our facilities, and the effort we put into being the best humans, scholars, and athletes that we can be. At the end of the day, this is still high school athletics and the life lessons learned are far more valuable than the wins and losses.

What is #PullTheRope?

#PullTheRope - Focuses on what you can control — the energy you bring to your life (“your strength”), the sacrifices you are willing to make (“the rope)”, and the direction in which a group of individuals come together to pull in the same direction towards a common goal ("the pull)".

How we practice...

Depending on the game schedule you can expect to practice an average of 7.5 hours per week. In addition to our on-ice training, you can also find yourself in the weight room, practicing off-ice stick skills, and film for two hours per week. Finally, we spend an hour each week doing dryland training following our on-ice practice. Our dryland sessions include stickhandling, running stairs, and prehab (stretching, preparing our bodies for competition.)

Film, Film, Film...

We put EXTREME emphasis on film and preparedness. "Failure to prepare is preparing to fail." Yes, we watch film in a team setting, but we also have "Homework Film." "Homework Film" is film that coach Blake Hackbarth cuts, voices over, and sends to the team to study on their own along with a slideshow that depicts our shortcomings or how we want to play our next opponent.

How we treat our opponents and facilities

We want to leave every arena better than we found it. Following each game on as the visitor you can find our team picking up trash in the stands left by spectators. Each week in our own facility we have "Chore Day" where we spend an hour vacuuming, sweeping, mopping, and disinfecting our beautiful home Tri County Ice Arena.
