Dinner Dance 2014 - Friday Nov 7 - Tickets Available online

The CCYHA Dinner Dance is being held at the Keeney Memorial Cultural Center in Wethersfield on Friday November 7, 2014 from 7:00-11:00PM. 

Tickets are available through the CCYHA online registration portal. We do not anticipate any door tickets being available this year as we reached maximum capacity last year. Tickets are $55.00 for a couple or $30.00 for an individual. If you are purchasing tickets for a couple, only one person needs to do the registration/purchase. When you submit payment for $55.00, that covers two adults entry into the event.

If you are new to the organization, or have never had a chance to attend before, this is an event you do not want to miss. It is a great way to get out for a night, enjoy some great food, meet some new faces and catch up with some old ones. 

No dinner dance would be complete without a silent auction and some great raffles. Team Managers are putting together their team baskets for the event and will be available to bid on.

Please note that the CCYHA will provide dinner, music and all of the soda you can drink or use to mix with. All alcoholic beverages are to be brought as there is no bar there. If you need anything else, it is up to you to supply it.

This is a great event and a way to have some fun outside of the hockey rink!

Embassy Suites Hotel Blocks for Jingle Bell Tournament

The hotel blocks have been set up for the Jingle Bell Tournament in Marlborough, MA for 12/29 through 1/1. All CCYHA travel teams will be attending the Jingle Bell Tournament (except for Squirt A, they will be attending the North American Winter Championships in Marlborough from 12/26-12/29, I will be sending the Squirt A hotel block info shortly). As this tournament runs through the holiday season, CCYHA recognizes the importance of keeping families together and not splitting up to go to different tournaments, so we cover the cost of the Jingle Bell tournament for all travel teams to ensure that teams don't participate in other tournaments.

CCYHA Season Opening Face-Off Party

CCYHA Families:

What a great turnout at our Season Opening Face-off Party! The kids braved the heat and humidity and had a great time in the bounce houses and playing street hockey in the parking lot. The ice was filled during the family skate and the shooting competition had over 100 participants.  We also had a great turnout from last seasons Squirt A and PeeWee A teams for the unveiling of their banners.

Thank you to the Arena Grill for supplying the food for the event and to Future Fitness, Sonar from the Wolpack, and DK's ProShop for all being on hand.

The winner of the shooting competition was Henry Dougherty. Congratulation Henry and I hope you enjoy your new stick!

If anyone has pictures, from the Season Opening Party, please send to anthony@development2.com
