About

It all began with a bunch of hockey parents searching for a better way.

The StatMonsters Team

Founders: Jeff Daro, Heather Cumiskey, Sandie Daro, and Mark Cumiskey

As hockey parents, we enjoyed watching our kids compete in tournaments like Silver Stick®, but not the paperwork that went into it. Mainly it was the hundreds of hours needed to input rosters and organize teams that took over our nights and weekends leading up to it. There had to be a better way. Fall of 2012, a few of us started meeting and soon the cocktail-napkin ideas began flowing. StatMonsters was born.

StatMonsters is an invaluable tool in helping grow your tournaments. It’s designed to be a huge timesaver by eliminating paperwork and expediting your approval process. Teams and fans love that it delivers real-time game results straight to mobile phones or any electronic device.

Today, StatMonsters is revolutionizing the way youth ice hockey tournaments are registered, managed, and reported. And the StatMonsters team is only growing and is grateful for all of its success.
