For the first time, the New England District Girls Tier I U16 & U19 Regional tournaments will be played side by side with MA Hockey's State & Regionals Tournaments. CT is heavily represented at both U16 & U19 Girls Tier I with the Mid Fairfield Stars, CT Polar Bears, and Watertown CT Jr. Eagles participating.
CT will be hosting both Regional Tournaments at the New England Sports Center November 29 - December 1 and will be joined by Vermont in two exciting tournaments.
"We approached the District with the idea to partner with MA Hockey in early August. The thought was to maximize the exposure our girls get at the highest level tournament they participate in. Our girls will be playing at the same time as the East Coast Wizards, North Shore Vipers, Assabet Valley, the Breakers and other top ranked national teams. College coaches from all over head to that building for these tournaments. How great is it for our student athletes to reach out and say 'while you are walking around, head over to Rink 8 and watch me play.' CT has nationally ranked teams that can hold their own against any team in that building."
- Graham Gill, Women's Hockey Director, CT Hockey Conference
Winners of the U16 & U19 NED Regionals will move on to USA Hockey Nationals April 2-6, 2020, in Blaine, MN.
