Our travel team program is our largest, with close to 200 players, 11 teams (U8 – U19), and typically multiple competitive levels of play at each age bracket. Our scale, development focus, and multi-league participation (NEGHL, CHC, and CGHL) create a path for our players to continually advance to their next level of play.
Coaches work hard to match the commitment and intensity to the competitive level. Teams average two practice sessions per week, league and non-league weekend games, in addition to tournaments. Travel is State, Regional, or National and linked to league participation.
We typically hold tryouts in March and April; however, due to COVID-19, the 2021 - 2022 season tryouts are slightly earlier than normal. If you are interested in playing for the Sharks, click here to learn more about our tryout process.
TIER II NATIONAL BOUND PLAY
National & Regional Competition
Teams: U14, U16 & U19
TIER I & TIER II NON- NATIONAL BOUND PLAY
State & Regional Competition
Teams: U10 & U12
Heading into the 2021-2022 season, we've added Tier I and Tier II at the U10 and U12 levels, giving options for more competitive play for those ready. Like all of our programs, it's centered around player development that builds a strong hockey foundation for long-term player growth.
Teams at this age bracket are not eligible to participate in the National USA Hockey Championship tournament; however, they can participate in State and Regional tournaments.
CGHL D1 & D2 NON-NATIONAL BOUND PLAY
Teams: U8, U10, U12, U14, U16/19
Our talented team of coaches, positive culture, and partnerships with top-tier development-focused resources like Pro Crease Goaltending and IPH deliver individual growth in a fun and challenging environment.
As our players' needs evolve, so does our program. In 2016 we joined the NEGHL and CHC and began to compete regionally and nationally. Within two seasons of Tier II play, we won back-to-back USA Hockey championship titles in 2017 and 2018.
We are proud of our accolades at all levels of play and love seeing our girls develop a passion for the sport and become better players. Perhaps, more importantly, it is the essential life skills they learn through hockey, such as teamwork, hard work, confidence, sportsmanship, respect, time management, and accountability.
