Thanks to CCYHA Public Relations Director, Michelle Bonner, for setting up and managing these accounts. We will also have an e-newsletter in August introducing our board of directors, promoting our season opening faceoff party, and introducing the teams/coaches.
For the defense camp (www.simplydefense.com), we are offering a $30 discount. CCYHA players just need to enter "CCYHADEF" in the discount code field of the shopping cart and the price will be adjusted (from $305 to $275). On the next screen, when it asks for a group name, they just enter "CCYHA".
For the Breakthrough Skill Development Camps (www.breakthroughsd.com), we are offering a $15 discount on the full day program. The full day program includes both our Shooting & Goal Scoring Camp and our Powerskating & Puckhandling Camp. The extra discount is only $15 because the full day program is already discounted by $100 over the half day programs. Use discount code "CCYHASKILLS".

Congratulations to CCYHA Squirts, Finn McHugh and Jacob Markowitz, on winning the Connecticut State Mini One on One competition sponsored by Gotta Love CT Hockey. Teams of two (one skater and one goalie) from programs across the entire state competed in the event. The newly crowned champions will represent CT and CCYHA at the Boston Garden next fall and will be broadcast on NESN between periods of Boston Bruins games. Markowitz and McHugh beat a fellow CCYHA team of Bob Lachance and Ryan Rhodes in the semifinals to advance to the final round. We will send out details in the fall about when Finn and Jacob will be competing on tv.
