CCYHA is looking to see what kind of interest there would be in a full season midget team for 2015-2016. I have had a handful of people contact me to see if we would be willing to explore the possibility of a full season midget team. If your child would be interested, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

CCYHA Player - Connor Sundquist Commits to Colorado College
CCYHA is extremely proud to announce that former CCYHA youth hockey player and current CCYHA Selects Hockey Academy player, Connor Sundquist, has committed to play his college hockey at, Division 1, Colorado College. Having personally coached Connor for several years during his youth hockey time at Central, this could not have happened to a nicer and harder working kid and a wonderful family. In his youth hockey career for CCYHA, Connor was part of two CT State Championship teams, two New England Regional Championship teams and one team that competed at USA Hockey Nationals. Central CT Youth Hockey is very proud of Connor and wish him the best of luck at Colorado College in the future.
Below is the press release:
Connor Sundquist of CCYHA Selects Academy has committed to play college hockey at Colorado College. The Glastonbury, Conn. native is in his third season with the organization that operates out of the South Kent Prep School. In 28 games played this season he has 19 goals and 18 assists, good for second on the Selects Academy 18U team.
Sundquist, whose father Erik played college hockey at Providence and was part of the Friars' 1996 Hockey East Championship squad, is a strong skater who is solid on the puck. He's a rugged kid who has good vision and hockey IQ, but he also possesses a quick release.
Sundquist chose Colorado College over the University of New Hampshire and St. Lawrence, the two other schools in the mix. Sundquist was drafted in the 24th round by the Muskegon Lumberjacks in the 2014 USHL Draft. His QMJHL rights are owned by Baie-Comeau. It is expected that Sundquist will matriculate to play for Mike Haviland's Tigers for the 2016-17 season.
