WANTED: Host Families for 2017-2018


WANTED: Host Families for 2017-2018 Season


Each season the Boston Jr Rangers U18 and Junior hockey teams have players ages 15-20 from all over the world who leave their families and friends and move away from home to play the game they love. To take advantage of the opportunity to develop themselves on and off the ice, our players need families willing to open up their homes. Our host families play a vital role in the long-term success of our players. The families prove to be great role models and provide a supportive family environment that will make a significant difference in the lives of these players. It is our goal to provide our players with the best “home away from home” and to make this a great experience for both the player and host family. Some families will host two players as they then travel together and are company for each other. Rich DeCaprio and Ryan Blair who coach the Jr. Rangers U18 and Junior teams help to coordinate and oversee the process throughout the year. Host families are extremely important to the Jr. Rangers players and the organization. Host families become a part of the Jr. Rangers team and family.

What is expected of the host family?

Each player will need a room of his own, or a room he can share with a teammate. We ask that each family provides a bed and a bureau or closet. It is also the host family’s responsibility that the player’s meals are provided for.

What is expected of the players?

The players must adhere to all team and house rules and show respect toward all family members. Players are responsible for their own transportation. Most players will have a vehicle of their own or will coordinate with teammates and roommates.

Host families will have a player for a minimum of 8 months. (August 15th-April15th). Each family will receive a monthly personal payment of $450 per player.


If you have any questions or are interested in hosting a player for the 2017-2018 season, please contact Rich DeCaprio at   or Ryan Blair at

Summer 2017 Clinics Announced

The Breakaway Ice Center and the Boston Jr. Rangers are excited to announce our summer clinics that we will be offering in 2017.  Along with the summer development program which will be the most complete development program, we are also offering specialty 4-day clinics for players. We are offering Shooting + Scoring, Defense and Skating clinics this summer. All of the clinics are open to all players and not just Jr. Rangers players. All skill levels are welcome. 
All programs will be run by Head of Hockey Development Ryan Blair. The rest of the staff are former Division 1 players that are still playing professional hockey. We are really excited about our first summer and can't wait to get started.  
Please e-mail Ryan at with any questions.

Ryan Blair Head of Hockey Development


BJR introduce new position naming Blair

Head of Hockey Development

Tewksbury, MA- In accordance with our new development model, the Boston Junior Rangers are proud to introduce Ryan Blair as our program's first Head of Hockey Development. Ryan joined the BIC and BJR staff in 2015 as the head strength and conditioning coach for Breakaway Total Hockey Training. He also is currently in his second season with the Rangers Junior program coaching staff as the head coach for the "Elite" team and the assistant coach for the "Premier" team. In his first season, Ryan led the Elite team to 32-7-3 regular season record, and a playoff run that culminated with the Elite team's second consecutive league championship. 

    Prior to his career with BTHT and BJR, Ryan was a defenseman at UMass Lowell (Hockey East) where he played in 141 games. Following his time with the Riverhawks, Ryan played professionally for three seasons in the East Coast Hockey League with the Cincinnati Cyclones, Wheeling Nailers, and Orlando Solar bears. 

    Along with running off-ice workouts for the Jr. Rangers and North Shore Vipers during the season, Ryan has run spring and summer on-ice skills sessions with several BJR teams, and partnered with BJR and NSV staff to run spring and summer on/off-ice clinics. We believe that Ryan's combination of a strong hockey background and experience in specialized strength & conditioning for hockey players is unique and sets Ryan apart from most coaches.  Additionally, Ryan brings a positive attitude and a lot of energy to the ice, and does a great job of preparing a plan that make these high tempo skills sessions fun, while also helping the players develop the necessary skills for success every time they step on the ice!
