The Greenwich Cardinals Youth Hockey Association is a family-friendly youth-travel ice hockey program dedicated to providing an opportunity for children to further their ice hockey skills in a competitive environment. We have teams at all age levels, and they are based on birth year. All GCYHA teams are coed.
Team/birth years for the 2022-2023 season are: 18U 2004/05, 16U 2006/07, 14U 2008/09, 12U 2010/11, 10U 2012/13, and 8U 2014 & younger.
While Dorothy Hamill is our home rink we represent Greenwich, CT and play teams from other towns throughout Connecticut and in the bordering New York counties. Our program emphasizes developing the fundamental ice hockey skills of skating, stick handling, passing, shooting, situation and team play. All coaches are experienced and certified through the USA Hockey Coaching Education Program, providing an excellent learning environment.
Tryouts are generally held in April/May and the season runs from September to March. Generally, teams will have two practices during the week and two games during the weekend. Teams will particiapte in one or two tournaments during the season. One of those tournments is often CAN/AM held in Lake Placid, New York.
