* As part of our focus on kids and player development The Rochester Coalition will be adding Development Coaches this season.  (Future Announcement)


Since its formation 3 years ago, The Rochester Coalition has become the area’s premier player development program.  The Coalition began as a working relationship between Tier I Rochester Youth Hockey and the Tier II Rochester Grizzlies Hockey Associations.  By adding working relationships with Evolve Hockey for team and individual player development and Bill Grays for Learn to Play and Pre-Mite Programs, the Coalition is now ready to take our program to the next level.


ROCO has had 17 division 1 commitments and 6 players on the NHL Draft Central Scouting list over the past three years.  In addition, 33 players have gone on to play at either Prep Schools or Junior Teams.  Every year, the ROCO message remains constant: moving players on to their next level (PREP, Junior, or College) and providing great exposure through the Beast.
