NEWINGTON ARENA RE-OPENING JUNE 22

Newington Arena will be re-opening on June 22nd in compliance with phase 2 of the states re-opening guidelines. We are working with US Rink Association, USA Hockey and USFSA on return to the rink protocols and will have that posted on our site in advance of re-opening. Only small groups will be allowed. We are working on an online reservation system for hockey skills/public skate/pickup hockey sessions that everyone must use prior to showing up to the rink with strict limits on the number of participants on the ice at one time.

At this time, we are still waiting upon more guidance from CHC and USA Hockey on when we can conduct tryouts. We will be holding tryouts once we are allowed to.

As we start our preparations for returning to the rinks and the protocols that will be in place, we are selling CCYHA face masks. Masks are $13.00 each. For every mask bought CCYHA will be putting $5.00 towards our hardship fund for next season.

Capital Wolves Girls Hockey

 

The Capital Wolves are a Girls Youth Hockey program located in the greater Hartford, Connecticut area.  The program is beginning it’s third season has been created out of a partnership between the Central Connecticut and West Hartford youth hockey associations.  The program skates girls teams at the U10, U12, U14, and U19 levels, and will compete in the CHC and CGHL conferences.

Developed in large part thanks to rising numbers and tremendous interest across the Greater Hartford region, the goal of this collaborative effort is to provide an opportunity for girls of various ages and skill levels to have a local place to play hockey, while simultaneously helping to build and grow a unique program to compete at the highest level against other Girls’ programs throughout CT and New England.

CAPITAL WOLVES CONFERENCES

We anticipate fielding multiple teams at the House League, U10, U12, U14, & U19 levels for this coming season, including both CHC and CGHL representation. The expectation is to offer competitive teams at the highest skill levels, while also affording every girl with interest a place to play hockey without having to leave the area.

CAPITAL WOLVES HOME RINKS

Capital Wolves U12 Red State Runner Up and NE Regional Bound

The Capital Wolves U12 Red team lost, 1-0, in the Tier II CHC state finals to the CT (Darien) Ice Cats with 33 seconds left in overtime. We were so proud of our girls heart, skill and courage, but it’s also important to acknowledge our appreciation of Capital Wolves families from all age groups. Numerous players from our U10 and U14/16 teams cheered loudly and wallpapered the glass with signs to support the Red Squad.  That kind of encouragement was a great boost, helped create a “home-ice” advantage in Newington Arena, and showed how quickly we’ve come together as an organization in just three years.

Before the U12 Red team moves on to make its first appearance at the New England Regionals in Walpole, MA, March 13-15, they will continue in the Connecticut Girls Hockey League (CGHL) Division 1 tournament in East Haven on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  

Congratulations and Good Luck !!!!!

CCYHA U18 Tier 1 BACK TO BACK National Champions

The CCYHA U18 Tier 1 Midgets completed their quest for a BACK TO BACK National Championship by defeating the North Jersey Avalanche 3-2 in overtime.  The CCYHA Selects started the national tournament with convincing wins over the Belle Tire 9-1 and Washington Little Caps 5-2.  Game 3 brought a loss for CCYHA at the hands of the Boston Jr. Eagles by a score of 4-1.  By going 2-1 in the opening round, the team earned the top seed coming out of their bracket.  The opponent in the quarterinals would be #1 nationally ranked Shattuck St. Mary's. CCYHA was up to the test as they advanced to semifinals by defeating Shattuck 8-6.  In-state rival Yale Jr. Bulldogs was the opponent in the semifinal round.  CCYHA earned a berth in the national championship game by defeating Yale 6-2.

The final game was a matchup against #5 nationally ranked North Jersey Avalanche. After CCYHA took a 2-0 lead late in the third period, the Av's tied it up with 2 goals in a 14 second span in the final minute of play to force overtime. The game ended early in the first sudden overtime period as Killian Rowlee secured the second of the back to back National Championships for CCYHA.

Rink Rater

An App specifically designed for Hockey Parents! Rink Rater is essentially the Yelp for Hockey Rinks! With users leaving reviews on hockey-specific categories, you can tell if a Rink has Skate Sharpening (& do they know what they're doing?), a Pro Shop, Concessions, Wi-Fi, What's Nearby, and a bunch more! There is even a spot for Ref's to let each other know where their Locker Rooms are and if there are hot showers!
