Welcome to the World's largest indoor Thanksgiving Eve Pond Hockey Tournament, we hope your ready for a good time!  The turnout this year is huge and we need everyone's cooperation in order to pull this thing off. Starting times have been moved up and the ending time pushed back in order to accommodate the large turnout.  

You must  be at the rink at your designated check in time:

MITES 4:30 (puck drops @ 5:05)

SQUIRTS 5:15 (puck drops @ 5:50)

PEE WEES 7:00 (puck drops @ 7:40)

BANTAMS 9:00 (puck drops @ 9:30)

*Note: Drust, Gilland, Kraus, Lachance, Monroe, Partridge E. are playing in Pee Wee Division and Horn B. is playing in the Bantam Division.

  • Minimum equipment required: Helmet, gloves, elbow pads, shin pads
  • Bantams: NO CHECKING
  • Each team needs a manager who is responsible for all three members of the team and to have them ready to go for each game. Sign up when you check in, and if someone already has your kid's team grab another one.         
  • The weather sounds sketchy, but this thing is on regardless.  In the remote chance that it is canceled an email will be sent out by 3:30 Wednesday. Also, the Newington/Wethersfield football game is going on so parking may be an issue.

If we have time we'll send the rosters out a little later and/or post them on the web page.

Any questions? No - great, see you tomorrow.

The Management

CCYHA Dinner Dance

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported CCYHA at our annual dinner dance and auction this past Friday night. What a great night that it turned out to be.

The turnout was amazing and plenty of fun was had by everyone. As I mentioned during the event, thank you to Dan McClutchy, our VP of Fundraising, for organizing the event and for his wife, Amy's, support and help throughout the night. Each year, this event gets better and better and Dan has done a tremendous job in increasing the interest level each year. Also, thank you to Michelle Bonner for getting many great silent auction items and assisting Dan . The silent auction was filled with great sports memerobilia and was by far our best auction. Each team also donated wonderful baskets for the auction that were very well received.

We do minimal fund raising and this one event goes a long way in keeping our tuition as one of the lowest in our area.

Thank you to CCYHA member, Paul Norton, for supplying the food for the night. The food came from Paul's restaurant, Max Pizza II, in New Britain and was tremendous.

I would also like to personally thank Doug Partridge and the entire CCYHA Board of Directors for the kind words (most of them) and the gift. It is very appreciated!

I can't thank everyone enough for their generosity during the event. We have such a great group of families in this organization.

Have a happy and safe holiday season!

Anthony Giusto (Juice)

CCYHA President

Embassy Suites Hotel Blocks for Jingle Bell Tournament

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).

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!

Update:

Finn and Jacob's mini one on one has not aired yet, but they competed valiantly and lost in triple overtime in the first round. They didn't go down without a fight as it went back and forth.  The boys enjoyed being there and made the most of it.
