The Connecticut RiverHawks will be hosting two CHC state tournaments this year on the weekends of Feb 19-22 and Feb 27-Mar 1. As the host we are seeking volunteers to assist with the games as timekeepers and scorekeepers. This is a great opportunity to give back a little time and ensure that the state tournaments go well in our home rink. Even if you've never done it before, it's a great way to get started. Volunteers are a big part of our organization and we ask it continues for this event.
Sign ups will be handled through the following links:
February 19 - February 22, 2014 Squirt Tier 4 Norris Division State Tournament
The CT RiverHawks PeeWee A1’s won the 2015 McKeon Christmas Tournament, which took place in Hamden on December 26-28, 2014. Going 2-1 in the bracket games, they earned a rematch against the Greater New Haven Warriors, the team that handed them their only loss, for the Championship title. The RiverHawks went on to win the Championship game in overtime with a final score of 2-1. Congratulations to all!
Our goalie development program continues to flourish under the direction of Coach Pete Alfano. Under this program, our goalies have the opportunity to get specific goalie instruction from one of the area’s premier instructors – Justin Eddy. Each RiverHawks goalie is offered 2-4 sessions every month.
And you don't have to look far to see results, both within our program as well as with some of our recent graduates. In fact, three goalies have successfully broken into the High School goalie ranks with the help of this instruction over the last few years: Will Guttman with Trumbull High School, Bill Scovill with Notre Dame of Fairfield, and Ryan Wilson with Saint Joseph's High School. All are playing well for their teams and getting plenty of starts at their respective high school programs.
The Connecticut RiverHawks are proud of, and committed to, the continued success of our goalie specific instruction.
The CT RiverHawks Mite A's won the 2015 Winter Classic Tournament this past weekend. Going 2-1 in the bracket games, they earned a rematch against New Canaan in the finals, the team that handed them their only loss. They went on to win the Championship Game 3-1. Congratulations to all!
