Travel Team Tryout Registration Open

Registration is OPEN for tryouts for the 2020/21 travel teams. Players born in birth years 2006 through 2013 are eligible to play on a travel team for the upcoming season.  All tryouts will be held at the South Kent School.  Cost to attend tryouts is $100 and includes 3 pre-tryout clinics. Complete details, including the tryout schedule are on the Tryout Information page.

*** Like all other Connecticut Hockey Conference programs, we are unable to hold tryouts due to the ongoing public health crisis related to the COVID-19 virus. As soon as we are allowed to hold tryouts, we will schedule them and announce the dates. We are currently forming teams at the 14U age level in accordance with CHC rules. Please register by May 25, 2020 to be considered for placement on a 14U travel team ***

What is GottaLoveCTHockey?


NWCYH Families:

We‘d like to make sure you are aware of the CHC initiative, GottaLoveCTHockey, a new venture that puts a friendly face on youth hockey in CT. Each week two CHC programs are highlighted and players, coaches, parents and fans are interviewed.  Episodes are released weekly on Wednesday, and usually are 5-6 minutes long. 

We’d like to encourage all players and parents to check out GottaLoveCTHockey (www.gottalovecthockey.org). Information is available on the website about signing up for the weekly emails, as well as other great information about hockey in CT. GottaLoveCTHockey can also be found on Facebook (gotta love ct hockey) and Twitter (GottaLoveCTHcky).

Thank you,

NWCYH Board of Directors
