Welcome Message

WELCOME MESSAGE

Our goal is to be the best player development program in the region. As we’ve grown to be the largest girls-only youth hockey organization in Southern Connecticut with over 225 registered participants, adding more programming opportunities for new and existing players, regardless of experience or level of competitiveness.

With back-to-back USA Hockey National Championship titles the past two years, an expansive tiered travel team structure, and one of the most robust Learn to Play programs in the region, we think we have something for everyone.  We’re are proud of our 90% player retention rate and consistently positive feedback about our purpose, operational excellence, and impact on so many girls’ lives.   

Our program highlights include:

  • Strong, positive organizational culture grounded in principle and shared values
  • Player development centric organization focused on helping each player reach their potential and next level of play
  • Absolute focus to growing the game through our Learn to Play Clinics, reaching girls of all ages (3 – 19)
  • Membership in multiple leagues (CGHL, CHC, and NEGHL) to achieve the ideal competitive balance for each team
  • Tiered travel team structure (White, Green, and Black) allows us to offer multiple teams (11 in total) at all age brackets (U08 - U19), optimizing growth and development at all level of play
  • Extensive development opportunities outside of team practice, including best-in-class goalie training program, in-season skill sessions, tournament opportunities, and pre-season camps
  • Top-tier coaching team using a consistent methodology that aligns with the USA Hockey American Development Model to optimize development
  • Champions of the girls’ hockey experience, giving access to female role-models through our expanding number of female Sharks coaches or our partnerships with like-minded organizations like Pro Crease Goaltending or the QU Women’s Hockey Team.

Heading into this season, we have a lot of momentum. Our President, Ed Rodham, outlines our accomplishments from last season, highlights our growth over the past five years, reviews the program enhancement for this season and reinforces what makes us different.
