USA Hockey registrations are valid until August 31 each year, so if your child played in 2013/14, the registration is valid until August 31, 2014. So, your child could have attended tryouts and the summer skating clinics without registering with USA Hockey for the 2014/15 season.
Note: If your child is not registered properly with USA Hockey for the 2014/15 season, we will be unable to place them on a roster for the team that they have been assigned to.
Please take a moment to check your child's USA Hockey registration information that you have on file with us.
1) Log in to your account at Northwestern Hockey using the same email address that you used to register for tryouts, etc.
2) Click on your child's name.
3) Scroll down towards the bottom of the page and Click the "Confirmation Lookup" button.
4) Enter your child's information.
5) If a valid 2014/15 registration shows up, then verify that the Confirmation Number is correctly shown in your child's record at Northwestern Hockey.
6) If no valid 2014/15 registration shows up, then you must register with USA Hockey for the 2014/15 season. Visit www.usahockeyregistration.com to do this and then copy and paste the confirmation number into your child's record at Northwestern Hockey.
Registration for Northwestern Hockey's Limited Travel program is now open. We are looking to build off a fun "Squirt" season last year. We plan to field 1 Peewee / Bantam team and at least 1 Squirt team this year and we've made some changes for the 2014/15 season.
First of all, the season will begin a little sooner. This year, the Limited Travel season will begin on October 25. The regular schedule will include a Saturday practice and a Sunday practice or game, both sessions at the Gunnery. The season will also feature games against other similar programs around Connecticut, including In House teams hosted by rinks around the state (like Stamford, SoNo, and Danbury). Finally, depending on the interest level on the team, we would like to enter the team in the "Rock the House" tournament in New Jersey in March. It is held at the Floyd Hall Arena and features House / Limited Travel teams from the tri-state area! More about that as the season goes along.
If you know of any other players looking to play a little hockey without the time and money commitment associated with full travel hockey, please let them know about our program. It's never too late to get started playing hockey!
The fee for the 2014/15 season is $475 for Squirts (birth years 2004 and 2005) and $500 for Peewee / Bantams (birth years 2000 through 2003). Please register online. A valid USA Hockey registration is required for the 2014/15 season before registering online with Northwestern Hockey.
The cost for the season is $675 ($75 paid at registration and $600 payable by September 20). The season is expected to begin after September 1 and will consist of 16-18 games plus weekly practices leading up to the start of the high school season.
Expansion of Goaltender Development Program Overview
Northwestern Hockey is proud to announce the expansion of our highly successful goalie development program. Starting with the upcoming 2013/14 season, the number of professionally instructed in-season goalie clinics will be increased from 4 to 6. These clinics will be available to all full-time travel goalies free of charge. Also, in order to attract and retain the best goalie talent in the area, there will be NO TRYOUT FEES for any full-time goalie that wishes to attend our tryouts. Finally, all full-time Travel goaltenders for the Squirt, Peewee and Bantam teams (max 2 goalies per team) will receive a 50% DISCOUNT OFF THE SEASON FEES. We are excited to be able to continue to foster the growth and development of both our players and goalies, encouraging them to be the best they can be both on and off the ice.
We‘d like to make sure you are aware of the CHC initiative, GottaLoveCTHockey, a new venture that puts a friendly face on youth hockey in CT. Each week two CHC programs are highlighted and players, coaches, parents and fans are interviewed. Episodes are released weekly on Wednesday, and usually are 5-6 minutes long.
We’d like to encourage all players and parents to check out GottaLoveCTHockey (www.gottalovecthockey.org). Information is available on the website about signing up for the weekly emails, as well as other great information about hockey in CT. GottaLoveCTHockey can also be found on Facebook (gotta love ct hockey) and Twitter (GottaLoveCTHcky).
