U12 TIER I/II (Non-National Bound)

Over the last 20 years, we've built one of the strongest development programs in the state.  The Connecticut Girls Hockey League (CGHL) provides our teams with predominately state-based competition at multiple levels of play. 

For 2022-23, we offer a Tier I and/or II option for U12 players looking for regional play.  The level of competitive play will be matched with the skill of the team to optimize development. 

Our goal for all our teams is to deliver an exceptional hockey experience focused on player advancement, hard work, camaraderie, and of course, fun.
