Arizona Stars Inline Hockey
Welcome to the Arizona Stars Inline Hockey Organization, Arizona's Premiere Inline Hockey Club. The Arizona Stars and its head coach Dan Maxwell have been commited to the development of young players for over 16 years by providing the foundation required to play inline, and ice hockey at the highest level. Coach Maxwell's Team First approach has proven to be very successfull which is evident by the number of former players now playing for programs like P.F. Changs, LA Selects, Mission AZ Ice, Outcasts Hockey, and many others. It's clear that no coach in Arizona has had the same kind of impact on the developement of young players as coach Maxwell.
This year coach Maxwell and The Arizona Stars will field four young teams in 2009, 8U, 10U, 12U, and 14U. Selection of teams will be through invitation only tryouts and closed once teams have been selected. The Stars program does not believe in adding players during the season unless they have participated in tryouts or committed to the organization, team, and coaches for the entire season. We believe adding players to our teams durning the season can only have a negative effect on team chemistry and will only take away from a teams overall porential.
All of our teams will work towords playing at the highest level possible, but our main goal will always remain the same, player development, physically, mentally and socially. Coach Maxwell believes that by stressing discipline, establishing a good work ethic, and understanding what creates winning and losing, our kids will know how to be successful both on and off the rink. We realize it's not what players can do for our organization, rather what can we do in order to help our players achieve their Inline Hockey goals. At the end of the day many programs may claim to be AAA programs, the Arizona Stars only claim is in developing AAA players.
