South Kent School and its South Kent Selects Academy (SKSA) program - the back-to-back USA Hockey National U18 Champions - have announced a new partnership with the Northwestern Connecticut Youth Hockey Icehawks. Since 2011, South Kent has partnered with Legacy Global Sports to provide students a top-tier private boarding school education while playing the highest and most competitive level of U15, U16 and U18 AAA hockey in the United States. For the past eight years, SKSA has competed in Tier I USA Hockey through their partnerships with the Central Connecticut Youth Hockey Association and most recently the Wallingford Hawks Youth Hockey Association.
The new partnership between SKSA and the Northwestern Connecticut Youth Hockey Icehawks makes sense for both organizations as their programs strategically align, both geographically and philosophically. “We are very much looking forward to this partnership and the benefits it will provide South Kent School, our Legacy Global Sports partners and the Northwestern Connecticut Youth Hockey Icehawks - and bringing more national championships back to Connecticut!” said Lawrence A. Smith, South Kent Head of School.
