The Connecticut Stars and Mid Fairfield announced in March 2008 their plans to form what is expected to be one of the strongest girls’ hockey programs in the nation – the Mid Fairfield Connecticut Stars. Mid Fairfield has a long tradition of fielding nationally competitive boys’ teams and recently entered the girls’ hockey arena with the clear potential to follow in these footsteps. The Connecticut Stars has a storied history in girls’ hockey with a number of appearances in national competition.
Both of our programs take enormous pride in our ability to attract great players from great families, who love the game of hockey and the opportunities it creates for exciting academic achievement, friendships and fun. We have excellent relationships with some of the best coaches in the region and intend to leverage this talent into an outstanding development experience for our girls. We believe this combination will create a better, stronger organization. It will strengthen the financial resources we can put behind the depth and breadth of our program – quality coaches, skill development, tournament participation, ice time, and the other critical ingredients to competing on a national scale. Importantly, we share a passion for excellence and the desire to give our girls the best opportunity to realize their potential as student athletes.
Moe Tarrant, Founder of the Connecticut Stars, expressed his excitement about this combination when he said: “This is a home run for our players and their families. We have the scale and resources to compete with any program in the country, but we remain very focused on our primary purpose – doing everything we can to make our girls better hockey players and helping them achieve their academic and athletic dreams.”
Our program is supported by Mid Fairfield Youth Hockey Association, Inc., a tax exempt corporation organized under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Among other objectives, our Association supports the Stars by seeking donations to defer the costs of the program and to underwrite scholarships for qualified players in financial need.
