The select teams were created to have bridge between the Metro League and the Travel League. The purpose is to give players the opportunity to play in the metro league and participate in the CHL (See Below) Tournaments (See Below) and additional practices with their select team. Each player on the select team is required to participate in the House League for the Full Season. There will be no exceptions to this rule.
CHL- The Carolina Hockey League consists of hockey organizations in the Carolinas and Southern Virginia. Each of the member associations put their age-specific teams into the league to compete against other local teams. The following organizations are current member associations:
Hampton Roads Jr Admirals, NC Force, Charlotte Rush, Lynchburg Coyotes, Carolina Stars, Columbia Cyclones, Carolina Jr Hurricanes, Charleston Jr Stingrays, Wilmington IceHawks, Triad Alliance Storm, Pineville Falcons, Roanoke Railyard Dawgs, Cape Fear Warriors, and Greenville Jr Road Warriors.
*Organizations may not have teams available for specific age groups*
Tournaments – 10U, 12U & 14U Select teams will get 4 tournaments, which includes the CHL Playoffs. The XIC Hockey Department will work with coaches to decide when and where to attend tournaments. Typical Tournament locations will include Charlotte, Charleston, and Washington D.C. Coaches will communicate with parents before attending tournaments.
The 8U Select Team will attend 3-4 Jamborees throughout the year. Due to not knowing which jamborees will be available and most having little to no cost, we did not include them in the cost of this program. Jamborees will be selected by the XIC Hockey Department and Coaching Staff. The 8U Select Team will also get 2 additional tournament opportunities.
Practices- Each team will receive additional practices.
8U – 18 Practices Fridays 6:00-7:00pm*
