About Us


The Gary Dineen Day Hockey School is now in its thirtieth consecutive year of operation, and is widely accepted as one of the leading hockey school institutions in the nation.

Over 22,000 student-athletes have come in contact with the Dineen Approach to hockey playing, all benefiting from the attention devoted to fundamental skill development and personal understanding of the sport. Class size and total enrollment are limited.
