Teams will play approximately 20 games beginning late August through early November
Games will be played primarily on Saturdays and Sundays with a few weeknight games
Cost will be around $800 ($600 for goalies)
Tier 2 Program
Tier 2 teams will play the 7-8 other CHC tier 2 teams as well as similar strength undeclared teams
CHC requires a minimum of 20 games between mid-August and the end of October to be eligible for the CHC tier 2 tournament
The top 4 teams in each division will play in the CHC tier 2 tournament held the first weekend in November in Newington
The winner of the tournament will play in the USA Hockey Tier 2 National tournament held after the completion of the high school season
The undeclared team will play against similar strength teams.
This team will also play approximately 20 games but without the schedule and season requirements of the tier 2 teams
