Travel Team Program offers competitive hockey team play. Playing level is determined by birth year (see chart below). The CAYH program has 2-3 teams per playing level, depending upon enrollment. Following evaluations, players are grouped according to skill. For the upcoming 2014-15 season:
Practice sessions are held at the Dorothy Talbot Rink at O’Maley School in Gloucester. The weekly practice schedule averages 2 evenings per week throughout the season. Practice times are scheduled between 5-9pm, with the youngest players skating at the earlier practice sessions.
Games are generally played on Saturday or Sunday; however there may be weeknight games for the older levels. Games are played at Valley League rinks that are typically within 20-50 minutes of Gloucester.
CAYH participates in the Valley Hockey League (www.valleyhockeyleague.com). Travel teams in the Valley League are ranked by experience and ability. Adjustments are made through parity to ensure that the divisions are properly balanced.
